While the board did not fall their way, adding another strong interior lineman next to Grady Jarrett is still one of the best moves the team could make to improve defensively.

Which team McCoy winds up with remains to be seen, but it appears he will be paid handsomely wherever he goes.

Free agent defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is being sought after by nearly a dozen teams, and the bidding could net the five-time Pro Bowler a contract worth more than $10 million. "It's just a visit".

Selected two years apart in the 2010 and 2012 National Football League drafts respectively, the duo established themselves as two of the NFC's premier interior pass rushers; collapsing pockets and sacking quarterbacks at an impressive clip.

McCoy has a $11 million offer from a team not in contention, according to Cabot, but the longtime scribe made it seem like McCoy wasn't interested in that offer because he'd be willing to play for a little less to play for a contender.

McCoy also likes the depth of the Browns defensive line which includes Pro Bowl players Sheldon Richardson, Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon.

"I think a lot of Gerald", Monken said earlier this week.

While McCoy was owed $13 million in 2019 and $39 million through 2021, Suh is signing a one-year, $9.25 million deal that, with incentives, can be worth up to $10 million, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. "He's a great person".
