Gerald McCoy has widely been considered one of the best defensive tackles in the game for years now, but there’s been talk all offseason that McCoy might get traded. McCoy is going into his 10th NFL season and definitely has some miles on him, but he can still be an impact player for most teams. With all of that in mind, here are four teams that should be testing the waters and seeing if they can swing a trade for the big defensive tackle.
The Browns were rumored to be interested in McCoy very recently, and he would make a lot of sense for the team. They don’t have a lot of interior defensive line talent, and Myles Garrett would love someone else to draw a double team. The Browns own all of their picks next year but don’t have much else to offer, and the Bucs would likely be looking for a big return from a franchise stalwart. If the right price can be settled on, John Dorsey won’t hesitate to pull the trigger.
The Falcons were one of the worst teams against the run in the league last year. A lot of it can be chalked up to injuries on every level of the defense, but at the end of the day they don’t have any impact players on their defensive line other than Grady Jarrett.
