NFL Player Heads To Sox Minor League Camp

Magee In 2014
OK, this is a weird one. He might not turn out to be another Deion Sanders or Bo Jackson, but Brandon Magee is going to give it a shot. Just this morning, Magee was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Immediately afterward, Magee let it be known that he's headed to Red Sox minor league camp at Fort Myers. Said the former linebacker, "Right now, I'm focused on spring training." Magee —a two-sport player at Arizona State—was drafted by Boston in the 23rd round in 2012. Originally, the Cleveland Browns signed Magee as an un-drafted free agent, and after a cup of coffee at Sox camp last year, he chose to play football again—this time for the Bucs. He saw limited action last year as a special teams member. So, now, it's hardball time again!
