Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade for Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Alex Magee

Unable to put pressure on the quarterback and last in the NFL in sacks, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded for Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Alex Magee before the Tuesday, 4 p.m. deadline.

The Bucs will receive Magee and a Chiefs draft pick in exchange for a draft pick of their own in 2011.

Magee was a third-round pick by the Chiefs in 2009 from Purdue but is a better fit in a 4-3 defense than the 3-4 scheme deployed by Kansas City.

The Bucs are last in the league in sacks with four, all of them coming in Week 2 at Carolina. Stylez G. White, who plays the premier rush position at right defensive end, only has one sack. Backup left defensive end Tim Crowder has two and linebacker Quincy Black has one.

Magee has played in only two games with the Chiefs this year, recording two tackles. Both came in a game at Indianapolis.

As a rookie last season, Magee played in eight games and had six tackles and two sacks. At Purdue, he was a right defensive end before switching to the left side as a senior.
