LB McKenzie unexpected leader in Tampa
By Mike Rodak
A third-round pick of the Patriots in 2009, linebacker Tyrone McKenzie's time in New England ended on November 6 of last season after the Patriots granted his request to be released from the team's practice squad.
McKenzie joined the practice squad of the Buccaneers, and was promoted to the 53-man roster for the final three games of the season.
This offseason, McKenzie has emerged as a leader among the Tampa Bay defense, contacting other Buccaneers players and organizing offseason workouts.
