McCoy and the Buccaneers mutually agreed to part ways, and it appears a good thing for McCoy that the team let him go when they did. According to Stroud McCoy is going to start his free agency visits on Friday visiting the Cleveland Browns.
One Browns player who doesn’t think the team needs to add McCoy is Myles Garrett who believes the team is good with what they have but will accept whatever direction the team decides to go.
“What they decide to do, I’ll be OK with, and I’ll accept it and move on,” Garrett said via NFL.com, “but I think we’re good with what we have. I’m always going to be passionate about the guys we have in the locker room because they’ve always been OK with me, they’ve always done right by me, so I have no problem playing with them, going out there and sweating, bleeding and winning with them.”
Garrett’s comments are interesting but looking at least years stats; the Browns could use McCoy. Last season the Browns defense was ranked 30th in the league giving up almost 400 yards per game, and a player of McCoy’s status will do doubt help.
