Many Teams Contacting GMC

May 24th, 2019

In high demand

Yeah, this might be an agent calling someone in West Virginia or New York to stir up even more interest. But for a defensive tackle that a vocal sect of Bucs fans could not wait to run out of town for being such an awful player, nearly a third of NFL teams have reached out to Gerald McCoy’s camp inquiring about his services.

Per Curtis Crabtree of, 10 teams have gotten a hold of GMC’s representatives offering to pay up to $11 million for him to suit up this season.

McCoy will visit the Cleveland Browns on Friday. The Carolina Panthers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts are among teams reportedly interested in McCoy as well.

While the market could have potentially been even more robust if McCoy was available during the opening stages of free agency, with ten teams vying for his services it would seem McCoy can still command a pretty lucrative deal.

And we also know Saints quarterback Drew Brees has put in a good word for GMC. There is also scuttlebutt floating that the Dixie Chicks are interested as well. And we know where Atlanta’s current offensive coordinator was last year.

If GMC was such a rotten skunk on the field, the way many will have you believe, how is it nearly a third of the league wants him and could be willing to pay nearly what Team Glazer was — and more than Ndamukong Suh?

For example, is fan favorite Chris Conte working anywhere these days? Charles Sims? How about Jacquizz Rodgers?

Maybe those offensive coordinators, coaches and general managers Joe talks with at the NFL combine really weren’t all conspiring to con Joe about GMC after all?

More and more this whole GMC booting is looking like Bucco Bruce Arians was determined to put his foot down and demonstrate that not even top veterans or high draft picks safe on the Bucs.

Is Vernon Hargreaves the next example?

    He’s thanking Batman that this LOSER TEAM let him go to make money for a winner! You go Gerald!! 👏🏼

    Be careful what you wish for Bucs fans.

  2. Unimpressed Says:

    The Saints, Falcons, AND the Panthers want him, but yeah, he’s TRASH. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

  3. Mitch Says:

    I believe the moving on from GMC has gotta be more about culture change/leadership/attitude than his play or price tag.

  4. Clw JB Says:

    11 is still less than 13.5

    We had NO cap space and still have a couple spots to shore up

    I think it’s a combo of noney need and attitude adjustment time on D

    They said they were going to evaluate every position, every play

    They saw what we all did too

  5. El Buco Realisto Says:

    I don’t care if all 31 teams kick the tires on she-mc!!!!!! We all know now that she-mc and agent won’t be marching into the gm office to complain about defensive scheme’s the she does not like and does not feature her!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. J Says:

    BREAKING NEWS FROM JBF…Apples are being compared to oranges! The story was seen here FIRST on JBF, let’s not forget that too.

  7. Buc believer Says:

    Curtis Crabtree is probably a pawn of Batman’s agent. If he was so wanted he would be signed already.

  8. RustyRhinos Says:

    Let’s see what all those teams are willing to pay for Geralds services. Anyone think it will be for 13 million a season? 11 million? 9 million? Less? If we could have gotten him to restructure his contract would he have stayed? If he does go to any NFC South team will he play like a rabid dog? Will he show up in his kimono, his batman outfit? Will he be helping players up after a play, will he apologize for tackling QB’s for his new team? I think he has had a okay career for us. Biggest disappointment I have is he does not have that switch to flip to fight to win against whoever is across from him, play after play game after game. No apologies to tackled players, no dancing on the sideline of another bad loss. I just do not and did not see enough mean F U attitude in his play here. Lots of fun he had. Good luck in the future McCoy.

    Go! Bucs!

  9. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    I don’t think it is fair to say the “vocal sect” wanted to run him out of town….I think they were saying his play did not correspond with his pay

  10. AceOfAerospace Says:

    I understand why this column was written, I read it, but, he’s no longer a Buc, so I really don’t care where he winds up. If he was worth the salary he’s commanding, we’d have kept him.

  11. Bird Says:

    Showing that picture of McCoy in kimono Definitely done for some extra clicks.

    I’m cool with a very similar player (actually Suh probably better suited for this 3-4) being signed for 9.25 mil. Good deal. The whole mean guy thing is whatever to me. But let’s be clear , the Bucs have been known to be soft on both sides of ball. The whole team needs to toughen up. It wasn’t just McCoy that was the problem

    Gholston has done 1 good thing for Bucs …be a big guy on The field that is good against run

    So I could see gholston (L) , Vea (M) and Suh (R)
    And Gholston , Suh , Vea

    As our behemoths up front in 3-4 .

  12. westernbuc Says:

    Further proof that McCoy haters are football illiterate

  13. THETRUTH Says:

    What!!!! The expert fans all said he is garbage and sucks yet Football people want him for their team !!!!

    How dare they want him when Bucs expert Football GM minds have Spoken

    He goes to Carolina he can just line up against our right side of line and donas he wishes.

  14. Ndog Says:

    If GMC was such a rotten skunk on the field, the way many will have you believe, how is it nearly a third of the league wants him and could be willing to pay nearly what Team Glazer was — and more than Ndamukong Suh?

    Cause just like draft picks they focus on all the good and figure the bad they can fix. Once he gets somewhere and starts jumping through gaps to create huge running lanes, dancing when they are down by 20 or playing patty cake on the line for them then they will regret giving him a dime. Those sack numbers look great till you realize they are empty numbers only serving to fill McCoys bloated ego.

  15. SmoothBayRider Says:

    Lmao @ Tmax

  16. Eric y Says:

    Yep joe just like you had to bring up Keyshawn mentioning GMC was the best DT in this era let’s not forget Keyshawn also said he was the best player the Bucs ever got rid of …. regardless GMC is not a great football player

  17. George Rauh Says:

    I don’t believe there is that much interest. If there was, why couldn’t the Bucs find a trade partner?

  18. stvcl Says:

    Yeah…now that teams know they can get him on the cheap since they’re not obligated to pay the insane 13 million, they’re interested. Let’s see what kind of contract @Geraldweenie93 commands on the open market.

  19. Bird Says:

    McCoy will get same 10 mil deal
    The market is set as the comparable is Suh who is the almost the same player
    Same stats except tackles Suh way more tackles. McCoy a little better at sacks

    However , power vs finesse
    Good guy vs mean guy

    The one thing I will say about Suh is this. No question he is powerful. No question he takes plays off:

    How did he have only 3 or 4 sacks last year (or whatever it was ) playing next to Aaron Donald who got a double team on every play from every team in the Nfl. Suh had 1 v 1 all year. And don’t tell me he was the nose tackle so his job was not to get after QB. Makes no sense.

  20. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    What would it look like if Suh and Donovan Smith took the same play off against each other ? 🙂

  21. Kalind Says:

    This was ENTIRELY about price and value. He carried no value at a prohibitive 13mil. Someone else gets him and saves 5mil? No problem. He’ll id have been happy to keep him on the team for 8mil.

    But 13? No way he’s worth that. Period.


  22. ATrain Says:

    Just goes to show GMC IS A NE GUY

    He will play somewhere else for less money


    Florida has not STATE INCOME TAX
    Which means he could have signed with the Bucs or 9 million and still made about the same money


  23. Curse of Gruden Says:

    No one will sign him for 13 million! He would’ve not been “run” out of town had he restructured for 8 million.

  24. Mike Johnson Says:

    This is gonna end up being a great story and steal for some NFL team. Nobody was interested in Suh but they are knocking on McCoys door. Hmnnnn..must be..the BucLife aye? Wouldn’t it be somethin he ends up with them Saints or Dirty birds and comes back to haunt us? BucLife again Baby! GMC seems like a pretty happy guy throughout all of this and I’m happy for him.

  25. Bruce Blahak Says:

    Hopefully he signs soon, so we don’t have to have any more Batwoman McSofty stories….

  26. Todd Says:


    “However , power vs finesse
    Good guy vs mean guy”

    Spot on. Now, if BA and TB can keep him off their accountability board week after week (like we hope with Jensen), then we’ll see the resurrection of Suh the Great. I have great hopes they will. Suh and Jensen will respond to the demand of self-discipline when it comes to unnecessary penalties. If they do…lightning in a bottle.

  27. DB55 Says:


    They must need a back-up for their 3-techs. Gmc damn sure ain’t taking Short or Jarrett’s job. Saints might be the only team where he would start as a 3-tech. But remember he said he wouldn’t play any other position for us.

    No one cares, good riddance I hope he succeeds where ever he lands. 🙄✌🏽🍦

  28. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    McCoy is such a nice guy after checking out the FA market he’ll be true to his word and return to Tampa signing a deal equal to the best FA offer he received 🙂

  29. Gbobucsfan Says:

    He’s not going to any of those teams to be the leader of the D, like he was expected to be here. We paid him to lead the D and he failed.

    If he would have taken 10mil here now that’s a whole different scenario.

  30. DB55 Says:

    Reminder: Richie Incognito is a FA!!!

  31. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Josh Allen is already out with a bruised knee from his first practice……Buc fans would already be call him “soft”…..

  32. D-Rome Says:

    No one will sign him for 13 million! He would’ve not been “run” out of town had he restructured for 8 million.

    It’s quite possible BA (band-aid) didn’t want him on the team regardless of whether or not he restructured.

    As I said when rumors of Suh hit the news is that the Bucs were the only team interested in Suh. He was a free agent for months.

    All of you knuckle dragging mouth breathers saying “Why wasn’t GMC signed already” well it’s a process you idiots. Visiting teams, being wined and dined, and being pitched at is what happens to star free agents.

    Again, what news reports have you heard over the past several months where Suh was visiting anyone? The only place he visited was France.


  33. Todd Says:


    Why are you even in here? Go be a non-fan somewhere else. Who gives a sh!t about your negative take on everything Bucs. Shoo, be gone.

  34. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Is he going to sing The Little Mermaid’s “Party With Me” at his interviews?

  35. El Buco Realisto Says:

    I sure she-mc is looking for a big market to go to!!!!! Maybe then she can pick up a huge sponsor as well, Like Charmin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Todd Says:

    El Bucs—

    That was a good one! 😂

  37. BigMacAttack Says:

    He won’t last 3 games before IR. $11mil up in smoke.

  38. D-Rome Says:


    Why are you even in here? Go be a non-fan somewhere else. Who gives a sh!t about your negative take on everything Bucs. Shoo, be gone.

    When it comes to the Bucs, the truth is negative. If you want sunshine and rainbows go visit But to assuage (look it up in a dictionary) your fee fees I’ll say this: Suh is probably a better fit for the defensive scheme Band-Aid wants to run here.

    As for me, I’m not going anywhere.


  39. El Buco Realisto Says:

    Word on the street that she-mc has already missed one team interview!!!! There were two guys at the front door and she-mc could not get past!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. johnnythemoon Says:

    He is so Popular and wanted that NO team would pitch a 7th rd pick to not risk losing him to the other 20 teams that now want him …all over 2 million dollars as his contract was 13 and everyone wants to pay him 11 …strange .

  41. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Until he signs and has a team and new unis then all of this is agent and lap dawg media BS…I would be surprised if he makes it to cleveland or bmore it seems that fan base would destroy mccoy with their passion for winning

  42. Bucsdelight Says:

    Out of the teams mentioned, 2-3 of them are playoff contenders this year. If Saints are in mix that number goes up. Also, why would a team give up a 7th rd pick knowing that the Bucs would cut him? Now, they save a 7th and don’t spend 13 mil. Some of you are pretty dense.

  43. DBS Says:

    I laugh at all the people that say Florida has no state income tax. I guarantee they have no idea how it works.

  44. BigMacAttack Says:

    As BA says, let’s focus on the players that are here. I don’t care where that clown goes or who’s money he throws away.

  45. Nick Says:

    Can we please stop talking about this guy !

    one of the most bizarre posts in the history of JBF….the jury system scares the heck out of me

  47. Bucnjim Says:

    Nobody would trade a tuna on rye for him but every team in the league wants him? Really doesn’t make a lot of sense. The only way to secure his services would be to trade for him! Any team that waited for him to be cut would have to take a chance on another team picking him up first. This means yeah I’ll take a look but he better be on sale for Memorial Day special.

  48. T REX Says:


    How many teams did Licht outbid? Himself?

    Welcome to loserville!

  49. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Teams might want him, but I doubt any want to pay $13M for him. I think the Bucs likely wanted to keep him too, but like 31 other NFL teams they realized $13M was too much for the guy’s production. Calling the Bucs stupid for letting him go at $13M is…well kind of stupid.

    Gerland knew he wasn’t getting $13 mill too. Licht and old man Arians couldn’t get him to stay for less. That’s the truth. Now he can go somewhere else and win. How many winning teams has Suh been on? 3? 4? Not many so tell me about this winning attitude he brings? Oh, it’s just attitude not a winning one. My bad.

  51. Cobraboy Says:

    @DBS: no state income tax on games played in FL.

  53. passthebuc Says:

    Does it make a difference what GMC is now doing? Ancient history. Write about those players on the Fuc’s roster

  54. BringBucsBack Says:

    Johnny the moon! Also, since he wasn’t traded and EVERYONE knew he was going to be released as a result, NONE of those umpteen interested teams were ready to pounce? No one tampered?

    In addition to being wined & dined, he’s taking so much time to sign because he is probably not hearing the $ he wants?

    But, it only takes one fool, Licht is not the only one, just one of the best at being the worst!

  55. 813bucboi Says:

    he wouldnt have to be a leader on any of those teams….he can just go out and have fun…..

    VHG is in a different boat….BA’s trying to get him back to that “dog” mentality that he had at UF…..

    GMC was captain of the losing culture….

    GO BUCS!!!!

  56. allhailJPP Says:

    BHa ha Ha Greg dropped the peoples elbow on the Joe’s

  57. Snook Says:

    Wow, Joe.

    Nice spin.

    Its pretty clear this is spin by McCoy’s agent. Which is his job. I’m shocked you can’t see that.

    “Interested” mean the team called his agent and asked what kind of money he’s looking for.

    I’m sorry you’re butt hurt that McCoy is gone. But he was the head of this franchise for nearly 10 years and because COMFORTABLE with losing. That’s why he’s gone. PERIOD.

  58. D-Rome Says:

    BA’s trying to get him back to that “dog” mentality that he had at UF

    What the heck does that even mean?

  59. Snook Says:

    “and could be willing to pay nearly what Team Glazer was — and more than Ndamukong Suh?”

    HUGE stretch. I know McCoy will get more than Suh from some team. That’s his only goal. Money. He’ll get $9.5M from someone just because he doesn’t want to look bad.

    As for the Saints or Panthers being interested… I think you need to check out their current salary cap situation. DUH.

  60. Wesley Says:

    McCoy has become a very average player, stop fooling yourself Joe.

  61. DBS Says:

    Cobra. You being a former player I knew you knew that. But you don’t come on here telling people that all the time or call the dumb a$$

  62. Bird Says:

    The whole if teams interested then why couldn’t bucs get trade argument ?

    Because teams knew bucs weren’t paying 13 mil
    Because teams knew he was a dead man walking.
    Because teams knew he would be released and they could get for less

    Let’s all agree nobody in the nfl was going to pay him that 13 mil price tag
    But to make that argument and say teams not interested you all are just blaming everything on McCoy which is a shame.

    Why would he want to play here anymore ?

  63. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    For years TMax said no one would want McCoy…shows what he knows.

  64. Todd Says:


    Will dismiss your negative posts accordingly then.

    Let me ask you this…at what win/loss record does a negative POS (look it up in the dictionary) like you actually give the leadership/franchise credit for righting this ship?

    When do you go from being a negative POS to a positive contributor?

  65. RTG Bucs Says:

    For McCoy’s sake I hope he gets some guaranteed money. If not he could be one of the late cuts in training camp.

  66. BucEmUp Says:

    McCoy will ball out in a good steam we just didn’t have the money to keep him

  67. Steve Lee Jr Says:

    It would be great if Atlanta or New Orleans signed him. That would actually benefit the Bucs. Would almost be like playing up against one less D lineman. That’s how he was with the Bucs, disappeared the majority of the games.

  68. Bird Says:

    RTG bucs

    What planet do you live on?
    Just curious ?

    Like Suh getting 10
    McCoy will get 10

    A team that pays a player as a starter for that money will not turn around and cut him and have 10 mil in dead cap. Funny you think McCoy is so useless , he would not make an nfl team.

  69. RTG Bucs Says:

    Sorry Bird, I just have never thought McCoy was all that, plain and simple. As I have stated before watch a game and watch the D Line. Watch him give up on plays constantly. Plus he is older so there is no upside to him at this point, he has one or two years left. So it would be good for him to get some guaranteed money for leverage.

    And for what planet I live on? Definitely not one with delusional fans.

  70. tmaxcon Says:

    It doesn’t matter who signs her the bucs will never get the failed cancer93 decade back nor does her signing with another team erase the basement titles or blowouts she captained for nearly a decade

    Cancer93 has never been successful nor has she ever been a winner she’s another teams problem now…

    I’ve said for years cancer93 fan boys are more concerned cancer93 and his dolls than winning

  71. wausa Says:

    I don’t believe Joe understands what the majority of Buc fans think about McCoy.
    Let me help:

    1)We think he used to be a very good player, but is now just a good player.
    2)We think his salary of $13MM was not reflective of the type of player he is(Aaron Donald’s base salary for 2019 is $9,108,000).
    3)We think he has been part of a losing culture, especially on the defensive side of the ball and those leaders needed to be purged.
    4)We are not sure Suh is going to be more productive than McCoy, but we do know the Bucs have been one of the worst defenses in NFL history with McCoy as its leader so a change pretty much had to occur.

    I hope that helps Joe.

  72. Buccernutter Says:

    Okay so 10 teams believe he’s not worth 13 million.

    Got it.

    Oh ya and tmax is an irrational hater.

  73. Marine Buc Says:

    Why don’t we wait and see what McCoy gets offered. Any team paying him more than $6 million per season is getting ripped off IMO… Of course teams are interested but at what price? No contract yet so this is just more BS GMC talk…

  74. SCBucsFan Says:

    Poor TPax. His food source has dried up. His rants, once annoying, are now annoying and irrelevant as its a player not on our roster.

    Mr David prepare for the TPax wrath next.

    And TPax make sure the italian bread is fresh when I come on for my sandwich. And for God’s sake please wash your hands before making my lunch you “sandwich artist”.

  75. Buccernutter Says:

    Wanna know why so many teams want him? Cuz he won’t be the face of their franchise. Lol

  76. Bird Says:

    RTG bucs

    Bucs just signed Suh
    He is a year older then McCoy so I’m confused about the age argument ?

  77. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    According to PFT, McCoy is getting offers up to $11m per year.

    That means a bidding war. All those people who claimed he would not get more than $8m per year, where are you now?

  78. RTG Bucs Says:

    Bird, reading comprehension dude. I never mentioned Suh and am not arguing about age. Actually not arguing at all. Just stated that it would be wise for him to get guaranteed money for security.

    YES, that does imply that I think some one might sign him and have buyers remorse.

    Yes, he is a nice guy, good in the community, looks good in pictures etc….
    Just not the elite football player that some make him out to be.

  79. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  80. tmaxcon Says:

    TPax I’ll give you this you put the perfect amount of oil and vinegar on my sandwiches every time

  82. T REX Says:

    Come on man…he gone. Worry about Suh now and all the losing teams he’s been a part of. There’s a new loser in town. Concentrate on him.

    I hope he goes to the NFL south so we can see Marpet and Jensen rag-doll him twice a year.

    He can also penetrate his way out of the play as Barber or RoJo gash up the middle.

    Those teams must not care about run defense

  87. lowercaseg Says:

    still a fan of Charles Sims after that crazy catch and run he had against Atlanta a few years back, almost had a heart attack.

  88. D-Rome Says:

    Let me ask you this…at what win/loss record does an intelligent, handsome, well reasonsed Bucs fan like you actually give the leadership/franchise credit for righting this ship?

    Win the NFC South or win 10 games.

    What, do you think that bar is too high? Are you going to get excited for 8-8? Is your idea of a great season seeing Vita Vea improve a little and seeing what Devin White will do? If that’s what you want to hang your hat on go right ahead. Keep on Raising The Flags and livng that Buc Life as the team continues anchor themselves in last place in the NFC South.


    For the record, I hope I’m dead wrong. If the Bucs win 10 games or the NFC South I will gladly meet you anywhere, lay down on the ground, and let you spike a (nerf) football in my face while you laugh in my face and scream “RAISE THE FLAGS!!! FIRE THE CANNONS!!!.” You can then take a cooler full of pewter colored Gatorade and dump in in my face while forcing me to wear an Ndamukong Suh game jersey. I really hope that happens, but you and I both know it won’t….because the Bucs aren’t winning 10 games or winning the NFC South.

  89. Buccernutter Says:



    Gets some sleep bro. Your all night Internet sessions have u mixing up porn and sports blogs. You’re seeing things.

  90. Bucsdelight Says:

    By stating that McCoy was the leader of a losing culture, what does that make Winston? Time to cut him as well, since he is part of a losing culture and not even a captain of the team. You all bitch about needing leaders, our own QB isn’t even a leader.

  91. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Some insults here I get. If you’re griping about shooting a gap and opening a running lane…a bad play…I get you.

    If you call the Bucs the Suckaneers…GMC a girl or softie…you diminish the credibility of YOUR posts while doing absolutely nothing to the Bucs or GMC.

    TMAX…you’re truly beginning to embarrass yourself…that is if you had any pride which is apparently lacking.

    Using juvenile tactics like calling somebody a girl worked well in the third grade…time to put down the childish things.

  92. Jean Lafitte Says:

    I guess it’s like the old saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. It won’t take long for his new team to learn what we already know.

    since he was drafted, he has been given the starting job and he’s gained a sense of entitlement under the previous staff….

    that aint flying under BA…..

    you come out and fight and prove your worth each practice…..practice doesnt make perfect….perfect practice makes perfect….

    maybe if you played organized sports you’d know what have a “dog mentally” is all about…..

    GO BUCS!!!!

    I’ve been a broken record in here that we’re goi g 10-6 and making the playoffs. I think in cans, not can’ts. I think this coaching staff deserves that much respect, at least. I just tire of all the negativity in here. I tend to think momentum breeds momentum and stinkin’ thinkin’ deserves what it gets.

    Great post. Apparently a Zig Ziglar fan eh…it was he who coined that “Stinkin Thinkin” term…or at least he was the first one I heard it from.

    I honestly do not understand how any sentient human being does not understand the difference in effect of positive thinking versus negative thinking.

    I’m 71 and have read and heard reams of material on the power of positive thinking including the classic by N.V. Peale. I’ve read great philosophers from ancient Greece to current times…from Western thought to Buddhist beliefs and I’ve never read a cogent treatise on the benefits of negative thinking.

    No ring of honor if he goes to an nfc south team

  102. Dapostman Says:

    How many offers of 13m from teams that will play a 3/4 defense?

    Apples and oranges.

  103. Marine Buc Says:

    Hope in one hand and poop in the other. Which one fills up first? Let’s be real. This team has sucked for about 15 seasons. We have averaged 5 wins per season this past decade. Have you read any books on being realistic?

  104. Snook Says:

    Falcons have $1.5M in cap space.

    Yep – They’re definitely “interested” in someone who’s trying to push $11M through their agent (PFT). Problem is, a lot of teams don’t have that room.

    Great reporting. Too bad the facts don’t support the narrative.


    Panthers: $9.8M (No rooms for $11M on books)
    Saints: $8.5M (No room for $11M on books)
    Ravens: $14.5M
    Bengals: $19.8M

    Cleveland and Indy are most likely. They have tons of cap space to overpay. Also, Cleveland is winning the off-season. They need more acceptance of losing there. Gerald is a perfect fit.

  105. Snook Says:

    PFT Live this morning discussed this.

    Florio noted that if so many teams were interested at $11M, then the Bucs would’ve had a trade partner at $13M and eaten $2M in salary.

    It was also interesting to note that one of the highlights they showed of McCoy was him pushing back a Pittsburgh lineman in last year’s game. Yes, he penetrated but took forever and ended up with half a sack because Big Ben held the ball too long. Classic Gerald. Padding the stats. Too bad no one here actually watches film.

  106. Chris K Says:

    You mean actual NFL executives want him on their team? I thought Tmaxipad and his fellow trolls were the know all of everything football and that only a trashy organization like the Bucs would even of put up with him for any period of time?
    All the fans with REAL football knowledge know the losing was not the fault of McCoy. Can I agree that he was no Sapp? Yes.. But a really good football player he was for a decade for us he sure was.
    Best of luck to him going forward and hopefully Suh can bring the bit of nasty this team is probably needing anyway.

  107. Tony LA Says:

    Of course they’re going after him!

    He’s a fantastic player as the MAJORITY of Buc fans and the ENTIRETY of the NFL realizes.

    just because the 8 or 10 ignorant, negative, miserable in life blowhard commenters on this site flood the comments here does not mean they are in the majority.

  108. Jf Says:

    GMC haters are bitter idiots.

  109. Mike Johnson Says:

    Somebody here made the comment, worst fans ever. We are Not the worse..Just the most desperate.When you’ve lost as much as we have, a lot of objectivity
    just flies over our heads. Suh is the answer now. Despite being on the market and nobody wanting him..but us. I hope this franchise can turn around. fans are gonna get rabid and turn on Arians quicker than a AZ Diamonback if he starts out losing a lot. Y’all know its true.

  110. Eric y Says:

    This is prob his agent putting this crap out there … I don’t believe any of this crap

  111. Eric y Says:

    People who believe McCoy is contacted by all these teams are dumb… it’s a game … I guarantee you it’s his agent putting this info out there because the only team that is interested is Cleveland … believe me … only one team will sign him and it’s the browns

    Uh oh. The “credit” police are on your tail! Better apoligize before they make you read a full tbt sports section front to back!

    It’s a two-way street man. Gave credit to the site where Joe read the information and that earned it with Joe. No more Mr. Nice Guy from Joe.

  114. mickman Says:

    he will get nothing near the 13 million he would not reduce. what a fool. he won’t event get the 10 million the bucs more than likely asked him to reduce too. Shu just set the market and he will get nothing more. what a fool. now he can go someplace for less an pay more state income tax. if the goes to a contender more that likely will not get 9 million.

    he is soft.
