Another grizzled veteran has joined Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Running back LeSean McCoy agreed to a one-year contract with the Bucs on Thursday. The 32-year-old is "very excited to play with established vets like Brady and Gronk in trying to win another championship," according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills tweeted at McCoy earlier in the week writing, "Heard you tryna win another championship." McCoy responded, "Hell yea," but it looks like a trip to Tampa was more appealing than a return to Philly.

McCoy joins Ronald Jones II, rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn, and Dare Ogunbowale on the Bucs' running back depth chart. He adds another dimension to what already is a potent offense with Brady at the helm.

In 13 games with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2019, McCoy rushed for 465 yards and four touchdowns. His last 1,000-plus yard season came in 2017, when he tallied 1,138 yards on the ground and 448 through the air while scoring a total of six TDs.
