Thomas Lee Agee (born February 22, 1964) is a former professional American football running back for the Seattle Seahawks, the Kansas City Chiefs, and most notably the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. Agee played college football at Auburn University, and was drafted in the 1987 NFL Draft (the same year as fellow Auburn running backs Brent Fullwood, Bo Jackson, and Tim Jessie). Jackson gave credit for much of his college success to Agee, a great runner and blocker.
Agee attended Maplesville High School where he lettered in football, basketball, baseball and track. He accepted a scholarship to play at Auburn University, where he became a four-year starter that was primarily used as the lead blocker for Bo Jackson and Brent Fullwood.
His best season came as a freshman when he gained 606 yards on 115 carries for a 5.3 average and 4 touchdowns. He was the special teams captain as a senior. He finished his college career with 356 carries for 1,735 yards (4.9 average) and 10 touchdowns, 34 receptions for 336 yards and returned 10 kickoffs for a 21.5 yard average.
Kansas City Chiefs
In 1989 he signed in Plan B free agency with the Kansas City Chiefs. He spent the first six weeks of the season on the injured reserve list, after injuring ligaments in his finger during the third preseason game.
The Dallas Cowboys signed him as a Plan B free agent in 1990 and started 11 games at fullback after Daryl Johnston suffered a shoulder injury during preseason. In the following years, he would be mainly be used on special teams and as the backup for Johnston who primarily did the blocking for Emmitt Smith.
