Tampa Bay is releasing defensive tackle Gerald McCoy after nine seasons with the club.

The 31-year-old had three years remaining on his contract with the Bucs and was owed $13 million in 2019 prior to his release. McCoy’s release leaves no dead money against Tampa Bay’s cap.

McCoy had appeared to be on the outs in Tampa Bay ever since the Annual League Meeting when new Bucs coach Bruce Arians told reporters that McCoy had not been as disruptive in recent years.
