Gerald McCoy says he feels reinvigorated by going vegan

Gerald McCoy

Gerald McCoy has received plenty of interest on the open market now that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released him, and the defensive tackle says he is feeling like a new man heading into 2019 after adopting a new dietary lifestyle.

McCoy told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he feels reinvigorated by going vegan.

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times also mentioned McCoy’s vegan diet after the veteran was released by the Bucs, noting that McCoy has slimmed down and says the swelling in his news has decreased. Whatever McCoy is doing, teams obviously don’t have concerns about it. There were as many as 10 teams said to be interested in him at one point, and Stroud reports that the 31-year-old has received some offers as high as $11 million per year.

McCoy is not the first NFL player to adopt a vegan lifestyle, though there seems to always be some level of concern associated with it. If the offers McCoy is receiving are any indication, he must be staying in plenty good shape without consuming animal products.
