Why Gerald McCoy will return for a 10th season with the Bucs https://t.co/JeyuEsHsi8
— Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) February 22, 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.
