According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, free agent running back LeSean McCoy has reached an agreement on a one year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
McCoy averaged 4.6 YPC for the Chiefs last season and showed that he still had something left in the tank, though the team made him inactive for several games down the stretch and in the postseason. The timing of this signing could be related to Ke'Shawn Vaughn's name popping up on the COVID-19/IR list. McCoy could just be a veteran camp body or Bruce Arians may have bigger plans since McCoy looked solid in 2019. The signing certainly takes some wind out of Ronald Jones' sails and Vaughn will now have to overcome McCoy and Jones to see the field in 2020. We currently have McCoy projected as the Buccaneers RB3.

Week 17 vs. Los Angeles Chargers
LeSean McCoy is a mystery at this point. He was a healthy inactive last week, but will likely return to playing in Week 17 as Spencer Ware is now done for the season. We expect Damien Williams to lead the Chiefs in the backfield, but it's mostly an unknown whether McCoy or Thompson will see more work in Week 17. With so much uncertainty, it's best to leave both on the bench against the Chargers.
