Buccaneers to Release DT Gerald McCoy After Nine Seasons in Tampa Bay

ESPN's Bill Barnwell says what the Bucs top priority should

Los Angeles doesn't appear to have a significant need to upgrade the defensive line as they drafted a pair of players in Jerry Tillery and Cortez Broughton and re-signed Damion Square. Seattle needs players who can pressure the quarterback and stop the run. Rick Stroud broke the news that the Buccaneers do intend to release the former top-3 pick.

Although McCoy has been a six-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro in Tampa, the move comes as no surprise. If the money is anywhere near right, Seattle should think about signing him.

The 31-year-old played nine seasons in Tampa Bay and was selected to the Pro Bowl in six consecutive seasons from 2012 to 2017.

McCoy was the third overall pick of the Buccaneers back in the 2009 NFL Draft and since has put together an illustrious career in Tampa Bay. Arians is wrong and McCoy's statistics prove Arians to be incorrect.

McCoy will certainly have options, and the Browns have already been identified as one team that has shown interest. Or the season after that and probably the season after that.

Let the sweepstakes begin and here's to hoping that general manager Tom Telesco will be working the phones to try to land McCoy and bring him to the City of Angels.

Seattle now has quite a bit of cap space left for 2019. The team had given his agent, Ben Dogra, permission to talk to other teams to find a new home for McCoy.
