No, but seriously, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (confusingly) cut Gerald McCoy — who made the Pro Bowl just one year ago and the Jacksonville Jaguars have reported interest, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Former Buccaneers' DT Gerald McCoy wants to sign with a playoff contender, and of course make money. But he wants to win. Spots that would make sense include the Browns, the Patriots, the Chargers, the Jaguars, and the Cowboys amongst others.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 20, 2019
McCoy was set to make $13 million this year, but both the team and player “mutually parted ways” because... man, who the hell knows?
But a defensive line of Calais Campbell, Marcell Dareus, Gerald McCoy, and Yannick Ngakoue with Josh Allen coming in on obvious pass rushing downs would be a beautiful sight.
I doubt the Jaguars give that kind of cash to a 31-year-old defensive tackle, but he’s still one of the best interior linemen in the game — and the defense is going to be what carries this team if they hope to have any shot of the playoffs, so why not go all in?
What about you? Would you shell out a ballpark of $13 million per year for McCoy? Let us know in the comments below!
