The Bucs parted ways with nine-year veteran Gerald McCoy this offseason, opting to take his $13m salary off the books completely rather than be saddled by it. McCoy's level of play has tapered off slightly in recent years, but at 31 he should find a new home quickly. With the Bucs transitioning to a 3-4 front, staying in Tampa was not an ideal fit for his skill set. (May 21)

Browns | Gerald McCoy set to visit Cleveland (Thu May 23, 04:07 PM) - Free-agent DT Gerald McCoy (Buccaneers) is scheduled to meet with the Cleveland Browns on Friday, May 24.

Our View: The Browns are quite the attraction now with all the talent they've assembled on both sides of the ball. The Browns and the Baltimore Ravens are reportedly on the short list of teams McCoy would like to sign with, while the Cincinnati Bengals are also interested. There are reports teams like the Patriots and Colts are also interested. It shouldn't be long before McCoy finds himself a new home.

NFL | Six teams interested in Gerald McCoy (Thu May 23, 01:11 PM) - Free-agent DT Gerald McCoy (Buccaneers) has six teams -- the Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints -- with some level of interest in him , according to league sources.

Our View: McCoy will have a nice group of teams to choose from. If he wants to win a championship, then perhaps teams like the Patriots, Colts or Saints would be the most appealing for the veteran defensive tackle.

Bengals | Gerald McCoy an option for CIN? (Wed May 22, 06:12 PM) - Free-agent DT Gerald McCoy (Buccaneers) is receiving interest from the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source.

Our View: There is no shortage of interest in the veteran defensive tackle. Released by the Buccaneers on Monday, three teams (Bengals, Browns, Colts) seem to already be in the mix for McCoy's services. We should see him sign with a new team in the near future...likely on a one-year deal.

Browns | Cleveland checks in with Gerald McCoy (Tue May 21, 06:49 PM) - Free-agent DT Gerald McCoy (Buccaneers) has received interest from the Cleveland Browns, according to a league source.

Our View: Released earlier this week by the Bucs, McCoy is already generating interest on the open market. He was due $13 million by Tampa this year and money was the main reason they let him go. McCoy won't get that sort of price tag now that he's a free agent but we expect him to latch on with a new team in the near future.
