Bucs to release Gerald McCoy, have interest in Ndamukong Suh

Gerald McCoy

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are releasing Gerald McCoy but reportedly have interest in a potential replacement.

The Bucs informed McCoy on Monday of their plans to release him, The Tampa Bay Times’ Rick Stroud reports. They reportedly are interested in free agent Ndamukong Suh as a potential replacement.

Tampa Bay apparently worked with McCoy on the matter and wants him to find a suitable home. They gave his agent permission to talk with other teams.

The two sides seemed destined to part ways. McCoy was set to make $13 million this season, which is an amount Tampa Bay did not want to pay. The team was looking to trade him but apparently did not find a partner because other teams did not want to pay that amount and surrender an asset to get him on top of that. If he is going to take a pay cut, it would be for a championship contender. There is an up-and-coming AFC team was said to have interest in the six-time Pro Bowler.

McCoy, 31, had not been participating in off-season activities for Tampa Bay. The defensive lineman had 28 tackles and six sacks in 14 games last season.
