Gerald McCoy plans to visit Browns first in free agency

Gerald McCoy

Gerald McCoy apparently has his eye on one team above others in free agency.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday told McCoy they were planning to release him. The six-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman is telling teams he will visit the Cleveland Browns first, according to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo.

This outcome is not too surprising considering the Browns were reported to have interest in trading for him.

Cleveland is switching to a 4-3 defense, which will necessitate more defensive linemen. They’re already pretty stacked with Olivier Vernon, Sheldon Richardson, former No. 1 pick Myles Garrett, as well as interior man Larry Ogunjobi. McCoy would give them even more depth and versatility.

Garafolo says the Carolina Panthers and Cincinnati Bengals also have interest in McCoy. McCoy had 28 tackles and six sacks in 14 games last season.
