Let's see if Ballard goes after him. Supposedly the Browns were also interested.

Ah yes...the thread with the great arm-length debate of 2019. Good times.

And yeah, I hope they find a way to get McCoy to Indy. He would be a nice piece on that line, and with all of the youth there, probably the proverbial 'veteran presence'.

I agree this feels like a perfect marriage. We have the cap space to pay him whatever he wants, be it on a 1 or 2 year deal, and he fills a need for a veteran presence on the defensive line. Plus McCoy will not have to learn a new defense. Hopefully this signing happens.

I do then wonder who we might then release when final cut down happens. Could possibly be Grover Stewart.

There are currently 11 guys who saw playing time along the defensive line for the Colts last year plus McCoy. Ballard has mentioned wanting a rotation of 8 guys, might end up being 9 outside possibility of 10. I think Green, Muhammad and Phillips would be the guys struggling the most at this early stage. I would be surprised if there isn't at least one injury during the course of the pre season which will whittle the numbers down a little.

Houston, Sheard, Turay, Lewis, Green, Autry, Hunt, Stewart, McCoy, Ward, Muhammad, Phillips

A nice position to be in though.

It seems that if you want McCoy you would cut Hunt. Is that a good trade?

Huh, Hunt would be about the last guy you would cut. A guy at the end of the depth chart would go first.

here ya go;



INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Gerald McCoy is available and the Indianapolis Colts will at least kick the tires.
That’s where it stands as McCoy, a six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle, looks to find a new home after being released this week by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Colts continue their search to upgrade the roster.
A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed the Colts have a level of interest in the 6′ 4″, 300-pound McCoy. They either have had or will have internal discussions regarding whether to actively pursue him.
General Manager Chris Ballard always has emphasized the importance of fielding strong offensive and defensive lines. That was evident in the latter instance in March when the Colts signed Justin Houston, whose 78.5 sacks rank 9th among active players, to a two-year, $23 million contract.
The defensive line currently features a slew of solid players: Houston, Jabaal Sheard, Denico Autry, Margus Hunt, Kemoko Turay, Tyquan Lewis, Jihad Ward and Grover Stewart. Gerri Green was selected in the sixth round of the April draft.
Recently, Ballard imagined a Colts’ pass rush strengthened by a swarm of ends.
“In a perfect world,’’ he said, “you’d put four defensive ends on the field. Absolutely, on rush downs. You want speed that can get off the ball and get after the quarterback.’’
McCoy, 31, isn’t an end. He’s one of the NFL’s more accomplished three-technique tackles, and has been a steady interior pass-rush presence. He had 54.5 sacks in 123 career games, all starts, with the Bucs and generated at least 5 in seven straight seasons. Along with his six Pro Bowl selections, he was selected All-Pro in 2013 when he posted a career-best 9.5 sacks.
McCoy also is considered someone who would bring high character and represent another leader and solid locker room presence.
If there is a sticking point to signing McCoy, it undoubtedly will be his cost.
Veterans generally sign modest one-year contracts at this point of the offseason, but McCoy isn’t a normal veteran free agent. The more teams that show an interest, the higher the cost.
But in that regard, money shouldn’t necessarily be an issue. The Colts have nearly $58 million in cap space, the most in the league.
McCoy’s relocation might be influenced by a team’s readiness to compete for a playoff spot, but he’ll also be swayed by finances. Tampa Bay released him when he refused to take a pay cut from his $13 million salary.
