The Buccaneers have traded an undisclosed draft pick for Kansas City Chiefs DE Alex Magee and an undisclosed draft pick. Magee was a third-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Purdue.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded for defensive end Alex Magee of the Kansas City Chiefs. Along with Magee Tampa Bay will receive a 2011 draft pick in exchange for a 2011 draft pick. The round of the picks was undisclosed. Magee was a 2009 third-round pick out of Purdue.
The Buccaneers needed help at defensive end after notching only four sacks thus far in 2010 with only three sacks coming from the defensive ends. Tampa Bay has been held without a sack in four of their five games. Magee (6-3, 298) had two sacks as a rookie last season. The 23-year old Magee recorded 11 tackles and four quarterback pressures while at Kansas City.
At Purdue he started 33 games including his final 25 games and finished his collegiate career with 117 tackles and 14 tackles for a loss and six sacks. In his senior season Magee recorded 28 tackles with 3.5 sacks and six tackles for a loss with a forced fumble.
Magee fills the roster spot that was vacant after Tampa Bay placed running back Kareem Huggins on injured reserve. Huggins tore the ACL in his right knee last Sunday against New Orleans. The Buccaneers deal for Magee was the only trade throughout the NFL on the final day of trading for the year.
