This last player was pretty predictable, right? The Buccaneers have been looking to move Gerald McCoy for weeks, during the 2019 NFL Draft may just be the perfect storm to get a deal done. McCoy, while a mainstay on the Buccaneers and in the Tampa Bay community, is now 30 years old and with a new defensive scheme being rolled into town, it appears he is being rolled out.
The Buccaneers may end up ultimately cutting McCoy as they cannot afford to carry the weight of his $13 million contract any longer. However, Licht is going to flip over every last stone in order to try and get any assets possible out of McCoy, even if that means packaging him with a fourth round pick in order to move back up into the second or third round.
All good things must come to an end, and while McCoy has been an All-Pro, Pro Bowler, and team captain in Tampa Bay for a decade, it appears that a divorce between the two sides is on the horizon. It would be a shock to nobody in Tampa Bay or around the league to see the big defensive tackle moved during the draft this weekend.
