Colts Interested In Gerald McCoy

The market for Gerald McCoy is starting to take shape. The Colts “have a level of interest” in the defensive tackle, according to Mike Chappell of FOX 59

The Colts still have $58MM available after a quieter-than-expected offseason, so they could be real contenders for McCoy, the top remaining free agent. The Colts fortified their edge rush a bit by adding Justin Houston on a two-year, $23MM deal in late March and McCoy could serve to strengthen things up on the interior.

The Bucs didn’t think McCoy was worth ~$13MM for 2019, but he was still quite productive in 2018 as he posted six sacks and brought his career total to 54.5. Like Houston, McCoy offers an impressive resume with multiple Pro Bowl appearances plus a First-Team All-Pro nod in 2013 when he posted a career-best 9.5 sacks.

The Browns are also said to be interested in McCoy and the veteran would also make sense for clubs like the Patriots, Saints, Chargers, Cowboys, Broncos, and Vikings.
