Gerald McCoy out, Ndamukong Suh in for Tampa Bay Buccaneers

As much as the Arizona Cardinals have done this offseason to address the defensive line, they still need not only depth, but they could use another key cog.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released veteran defensive tackle Gerald McCoy yesterday, and in turn are close to finalizing a deal with Ndamukong Suh to replace him.

That begs the question, is McCoy an option, or should he be for the Arizona Cardinals.

Depending on where the money comes in for Suh, you’d have to imagine McCoy will likely be within 20% of that number, then there is another hurdle that every team in the NFL will have to overcome... The New England Patriots.

While the Patriots just brought back Danny Shelton, he has his eyes on contending as well.

If not the Patriots, Adam Schefter speculated on a couple more teams that could make sense.

While McCoy makes sense from a positional need and value standpoint, there are likely too many hurdles to overcome, price tag and the fact that McCoy wants to sign with a presumed contender.

That alone likely eliminates the Cardinals.

However, it is not over til it is over.
