Gerald McCoy agrees to deal with Panthers

Gerald McCoy

Gerald McCoy has been pursued by multiple teams since he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the veteran defensive tackle has finally made a decision.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that McCoy has agreed to a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers that is worth around $8.5 million.

McCoy was also negotiating with the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens, but ultimately he decided to remain in the same division where he has spent his entire nine-year NFL career. Playing for the Panthers will give him a chance to go up against his former team twice next season, which Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports was a factor.

McCoy took his first visit with the Browns and was being actively recruited by Baker Mayfield, but it wasn’t enough. He should give the Panthers a nice boost on their defensive front.
