But if the Browns are interested in signing McCoy, they may do whatever they can to bring the defensive tackle to Cleveland. His streak of six consecutive Pro Bowl selections ended in 2018, but he remained a productive and disruptive player, tallying six sacks and 21 quarterback hits and ranking 28th among interior defenders in Pro Football Focus' grading system.
And McCoy's rate stats - especially after he returned from injury in Week 9 - paint a much brighter picture. On Twitter, Turner said McCoy is a real life savage and offered real battles twice a year. He has recorded 54.5 sacks in 123 games (all starts) since entering the league and while he hasn't played a full 16-game season since his only All-Pro campaign, he's still made a huge impact anchoring the Buccaneers defensive line. The Seahawks run defense could also use the play-making boost McCoy would provide in the middle.
For the Bucs, this signing makes a lot of sense, and that's because they absolutely had to make some kind of move after releasing McCoy, which left a gaping hole on their defensive line.
The departure of McCoy also continues a very significant wave of changes to the Tampa Bay defense. The 31-year-old has averaged more than seven sacks and almost 18 QB hits per season since 2012 - superb numbers for a defensive tackle.
Moon is shrinking, causing moonquakes
Over the last few hundred million years, the moon's belt line has slimmed by approximately 150 feet. Now, researchers have found evidence that active faults on the crust of the moon caused the shakes.
McCoy will have his options in free agency and he may decide to take visits instead of signing with a team right away.
However, McCoy still has better numbers.
After the departure of McCoy, Suh will be expected to anchor the defensive front next to last year's first round pick Vita Vea. Rod Marinelli knows how to get the most out of a penetrating 3-technique, so the system fit is ideal. As for why he landed in Tampa Bay, he really likes the Buccaneers' new defensive coordinator, ex-Jets coach Todd Bowles, according to ESPN.
