Per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy after nine seasons with Tampa Bay. McCoy was due a $13 million payday for the 2019 season and with so much unknown heading into the off season for the Bucs and McCoy, it seems Tampa has finally made their decision on the nine year vet.

Where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers go from here is still unclear, but now with the available cap space they’ve created with the release of Gerald McCoy, they could make a run for another pass rusher to help fill the hole on the defensive line. They’ll need to do something especially with the recent news of Jason Pierre-Paul having to miss time with a neck injury.

Stay tuned to Full Press Buccaneers as more information develops.
