Report: McCoy Will Retun To Bucs For 2019


It has been reported via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times that former All-Pro DT Gerald McCoy will return for a 10th season. This is despite talks of McCoy being a cap casualty going into 2019.

McCoy is set to earn $13M next season, and as Stroud states, that salary is about market value for that position. Especially for a player who is one of the most productive at his position. And this is a clear sign that the Bucs have no concern about his productivity under a new defense.

The Bucs will have to look elsewhere to create cap room. Players like DeSean Jackson ($10M salary), Cameron Brate ($7M salary), Mitch Unrein ($2.75M salary) are likely cap casualties. Needless to say, the Bucs front office will have some very difficult decisions leading up to free agency.

Stay tuned to as this story develops.
