Although McCoy can’t handle 15-20 touches a game at this point in his career, I’d love him out of the backfield and getting 8-10 explossive touches with the GOAT. He’s quoted wanting to play 2 more years…convenient!
I see no downside into bringing in McCoy pending on cost. He’s a player where I believe that getting a 15% snap share, he could have 7 to 10 very productive carries and/or touches as a reliable situational pass catcher out of the backfield. If he’s willing to take something like a 2 yr/$2.5M deal, then I’m all in favor.
In 2019 McCoy got 465 yards rushing averaging 4.6 yards. KC had a potent offense so they couldn’t key on McCoy. In 2018 McCoy got 514 yards but only averaged 3.2 for the Bills. But in both years he was effective in the passing game. He got 34 catches for a 7.0 avg. for the Bills and 28 catches for a 6.5 yard average for KC. So its the versatility that will be useful. He had two fumbles in 272 carries the last two years. If he can contribute 6 carries a game for 500 yards and 25 receptions which is less than two per game and don’t fumble that will be all they want from McCoy.
I would rather have had the Bucs sign Devonte Freeman. Much younger. But Devonte is still probably asking too much to sign. With COVID-19, he will get signed later to a team in need for better money than the Bucs could afford.
If McCoy is playing over the 3 RBs we just drafted 2018-2020 then WTF are we doing.
Ogunbowale wasn’t drafted. He’s just a guy, who probably may not have even been on the team this year if the COVID situation didn’t happen. Vaughn is a rookie who’s not really going to have much of a camp, plus is currently on the COVID list. I fully expect McCoy to be the 2nd most productive/active RB on this roster… this year. I expect that neither Ogunbowale or McCoy will be on the roster in 2021.
