Gerald McCoy puts Nick McDonald on his butt on great sack (Video)
Gerald McCoy became the highest-paid defensive lineman in NFL history last month, and he showed on Sunday why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers paid him all that money.
McCoy and one of the other Bucs D-linemen ran a twist stunt up front that left center Nick McDonald to handle McCoy 1-on-1. McCoy had so much momentum and power going that he just put McDonald on his back and then turned the lights out on Brian Hoyer for the sack. It was awesome.
McCoy, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2010 draft, broke out with 50 tackles and nine sacks last season, had two sacks against the Browns to give him five for the year. He also has $51.5 million coming his way thanks to the 7-year, $98 million extension he signed a week ago.
If McDonald had no chance against him, Hoyer was dead meat.
