Keith McCants Professional Career
McCants was for a time expected to be the first player selected in the 1990 NFL draft, but the Atlanta Falcons backed off due to rumors of knee trouble and allegations that his family had been paid money by a sports agent while he was still in college. Still, McCants’ strength and 4.51 second time in the 40-yard dash guaranteed he would still be a high pick, if not #1.
After being drafted fourth overall by the Buccaneers in 1990, McCants signed a 5-year, $7.4 million deal with the team, including a then-record $2.5 million cash signing bonus.McCants’ former college coach, said that “He plays like he is never out of the play. That is an intensity level I like”.
Floyd Peters was brought to the Bucs in 1991, and converted McCants from a linebacker to defensive end. Although McCants resisted the change, Peters convinced him that with time he could become a success story along the lines of Chris Doleman, another Peters conversion.
Within 48 hours, he was picked up off waivers by the New England Patriots, where he was reunited once again with Ray Perkins, then New England’s Offensive Coordinator . Regarding his cut from the Bucs and resigning, McCants remarked at the time “This is a lot off my shoulders…The rumors had been spreading for some time now concerning my future with Tampa.” He played in a preseason game the day he was signed, against the Kansas City Chiefs, before being released.
In 1993 while with the Houston Oilers, McCants stepped in to separate Buddy Ryan and Kevin Gilbride when Ryan punched Gilbride in the face following an Oilers fumble.
In 1994, McCants went to the Cardinals, following Buddy Ryan to Arizona after he was named head coach. In a game against the Chicago Bears, McCants picked off Steve Walsh and ran back a 46-yard touchdown; it was the Cardinals’ longest interception return of the season.In 1995 McCants scored his second NFL touchdown, on a fumble recovery against the Seattle Seahawks.
