Bucs Gave Gerald McCoy His Cowboys Physical

March 20th, 2020

Remember when Gerald McCoy said he would be a Buccaneer for life after he was cut from team?

It seems McCoy really meant it, and that was put to the test this week.

McCoy is a new member of the Dallas Cowboys on a multiyear contract. And he told SiriusXM NFL Radio this week that he reached out to the Buccaneers for assistance in getting the physical exam necessary for the Cowboys to officially sing off on his new contract.

Players aren’t allowed to travel to new teams for physicals, so there’s a process by which they have to get them done near their homes. McCoy lives in Tampa and coordinated with his personal doctor and the Bucs to get it done, he said, citing the great relationships he has with the team.

McCoy got feisty in the interview when co-host Bruce Murray asked him about his snap-count total being cut significantly with the Panthers last season, and whether he could still be an every-down player if asked.

McCoy said he expects to play every down in Dallas and he stated he has never asked a coach to remove him from a game.

    Good for McCoy.

  2. Mort Says:

    Well that was nice of them.

  3. gotbbucs Says:

    Did they check to make sure Suh’s 93 jersey’s were still there after he left the facility?

  4. DaMayan Says:

    McCoy is a cool dude we all love him. Just didn’t work out at the time.

  5. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    This is where TMax would usually start chirping. He has been eerily quiet though now that the Bucs have the GOAT as their QB in 2020.

  6. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I hope the staff thoroughly disinfected the facility to get rid of any Softness that might have been left behind.

    Still hot in Dallas where ice cream melts.

    Yeah I’m done bashing gmc. He should do well in Dallas. I’m glad he stayed in Tampa and considers it home. It would be nice to see him finally reach his potential and have a 15 sack season but probably optimistic

  10. Buc You Says:

    Glad the Bucs could “sing” off on his physical for a potential conference rival

  11. rrsrq Says:

    The way he sacked Jameis last season, that’s the least they could do

  12. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Do we play Dallas this season too? We’ll just run right through the gap he vacates. He sucks at stopping the run. McIcecream literally had one solo tackle a game in 2018 with 16 tackles.

  13. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    TMax targeted Arians. Hard to put down a coach who landed Tom Brady.

    Ha ha ha ha Doosh too funny!!!

    cool story…during all the madness…

  16. Swampbuc Says:

    Bruce Murray must be a short one syllable nickname for Richard to ask him that under these circumstances.

  17. Rob in Land O Lakes Says:

    Agreed that this is normally ringing the dinner bell for TMax. Should we ask law enforcement to do a well being check on him or are those expectations too low?

    “If the cop checking on me were a Buc fan, he probably wouldn’t have the competence to ring the door bell without the Glazers and Jason Licht telling him that it was a great move and you all would believe them while worshipping at the altar of overrated Dungy and coat tail rider Derrick Brooks. Man I love hoarding all of your toilet paper.” – Sincerely, TMax

  18. Bruce Blahak Says:

    This guy again? What’s he do, hang outside One Buc? Somebody tell him he’s not allowed back and he’s not going up in the ring of honor. He’s the first nominee for Bucs ring of shame. Go away Softie

  19. Dreambig Says:

    I’ll never get why some of you crazies hate him so bad.
    He is a good man, even if not a hall of famer.

  21. ATrain Says:

    Good Player

    But much like Winston he is overrated and was built up in this City to believe he was better than he is

    By the Way what team picked up Jamies?

  22. ATrain Says:



    Dislike that some of y’all put him as the GREATEST

    No other average player gets this kind of attention

  23. kyle Says:

    its just a kids game played by men. Gerald is a good dude, I respect him.

  24. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Rob that is some funny stuff! Dreambig I agree. For a number of years he was the best player on the team. They all claimed they wanted more production from him, but Suh comes here and gets nowhere near the QB pressures and sacks that GMC got but they all love him. We have a very weird fanbase.

  25. Wesley Says:

    Good dude, not his fault people overrated him.

  26. Bonny R Owens Says:

    very classy young man is Gerald McCoy
    And how gracious he has remained to
    the city of Tampa, Fl. even when undeservedly
    some of these clowns that grace this website
    classless as they may be in their best effort try to taint
    his loyalty and service to the Bucs organization.
    The real true bucs fans salute you young man for the class that you brought to the bucs organization and to the
    city of tampa.✊🏻👍🏻🆙🏈💯%*

  27. David Says:

    Just like with James, I wish him nothing but the best. They are both great players but not quite good enough
