Five potential landing spots for DT Gerald McCoy

Gerald McCoy was released today by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and these five teams could use him right now to make their defensive front better.

There are so many teams that could use Gerald McCoy, and while I feel the Browns will be all in, I think these five teams are potential landing spots for former Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

Indianapolis Colts – The Colts currently make the most sense to sign for Gerald McCoy. Right now they have Denico Autry and Margus Hunt on the defensive line, don’t get me wrong, they are solid players but Gerald McCoy has 54.5 career sacks. The Colts have the cap space and they are trying to get better.


Houston Texans – The Texans really use a 3-4 nose, but imagine putting Gerald McCoy on the line with JJ Watt and Jadeveon Clowney? Are you kidding me? The Texans have the second most cap space in the NFL right now and this move makes sense. The Texans have the offensive weapons to be successful, but they need to solidify their defense if they want to win the AFC South.

Kansas City Chiefs – The Chiefs have Chris Jones the best young upcoming pass-rushing defensive tackle in the NFL, if you add McCoy to that defensive line, they would be powerful. They only have around 23 million dollars in cap space, but they could give McCoy an extension and put more money in guaranteed to ensure they open up room to give Chris Jones down the road.

Miami Dolphins – The Dolphins defensive lineman are suspect, and they have tons of cap space. If the Colts pass on McCoy I could see the Dolphins making tons of sense. Brian Flores is a defensive minded guy and let’s face it, you will not find a better player like McCoy on the market.

Tennessee Titans – The final destination for me is the Tennessee Titans. Mike Vrabel signing Gerald McCoy and playing him next to Jurrell Casey? Are you kidding me that would be one of the nastiest defensive fronts in the NFL? The Titans, Texans, and Colts are all on this list. I could have added the Jaguars as well, but the Titans make more sense because they have the cap space to give McCoy.
