Last night DT Gerald McCoy made some waves when he remarked at a charity event saying that he didn’t know where he would be playing this season. During today’s press conference with Bruce Arians after day two of rookie minicamp, the head coach didn’t seemed to interested in discussing McCoy’s remarks.

Without a doubt there is tension within the Bucs brass about the subject of McCoy, and for good reason. As they have muffed his case from every angle. With misstep after misstep from both sides, it has become a saga that no one wants to talk about, but needs to be dealt with eventually. For month’s it seemed all but inevitable that he had played his last down as a Buc. With the recent injuries to the defensive line in JPP, they Bucs may not be able to afford to lose him now.
When and how this will end is anyone’s guess. Time though is the ultimate teller of all.
