The Browns have inquired on free agent defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. We learned earlier this week that the Browns discussed McCoy internally and their interest seems to be genuine now that they have made direct contact with the six-time Pro Bowler.
The Browns weren’t interested in trading for McCoy when he was set to make $13MM in 2019, but he could potentially be had at a lower rate now that he is a free agent. Of course, the Browns won’t be the only club to kick the tires on McCoy, especially since the Bucs took fellow defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh off the market on Tuesday. The Patriots, Saints, Chargers, Cowboys, Broncos, and Vikings would all make varying degrees of sense for the accomplished sack artist.
