CLEVELAND, Ohio – Myles Garrett may not be a member of the Welcome Committee, but former Bucs defender Gerald McCoy will visit the Browns on Friday, GM John Dorsey told a public press briefing Thursday on the Browns' landing to celebrate 2021 NFL Draft.
"He's a good player," said Dorsey. "As I've always said, I'm going to turn any stone around, he's coming to Cleveland tomorrow."
A source told cleveland.com that McCoy has the Browns and Ravens on his short list of teams he has I would like to sign with, and that the Bengals are also interested. His short list contains only three or four teams, the source said, and he will only make a few visits. The Browns are his first visit.
The New England Patriots, who were reportedly interested in one point, are not currently in the mix, the source said.
The Browns are not currently the frontrunners, the source said, but that could change on Friday when the Browns bring him into the building and sell it to the team and the city.
Dorsey said the visit was an informational trip for both sides.
"For us, it's a chance to get a chance to meet each other and find out who Gerald is," Dorsey said. And it also gives Gerald a chance to see who the Cleveland Browns are and which direction to go. In terms of his ability to play the football game, he can still play the football game.
As for McCoy, when the Browns signed a three-year deal with a free agent against Sheldon Richardson in the first round, Dorsey, who was worth $ 37 million in the off-season, said, "We'll see what happens. I mean, it's just a visit. "
For the six-time Pro Bowler, it all depends on who gives him the best chance to play in the playoffs for the first time in his 1
Since McCoy is unfamiliar with the Browns defensive trainers, this will be an integral part. Brown's new defensive coach is Tosh Lupoi, who came here from the University of Alabama.
31-year-old McCoy knows offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who gave Dorsey a cheap scouting report last week.  "I think a lot about Gerald," Monken said on Wednesday ahead of Fifth OTA. "He was an excellent football player for us and he had a tremendous career, I like Gerald very much."
McCoy is intrigued by the Browns, in part because they are a young and aspiring team, and the team have good chances of making it into the playoffs this year.
He also believes that the Bengals will be much better this year, which still has them in the race. In Cleveland, McCoy would be in line with Myles Garrett, Olivier Vernon, Sheldon Richardson and Larry Ogunjobi: Garrett has said that the Browns do not need McCoy, but he is deeply devoted to his current teammate as he was with last year He has proved that he does not want the Browns to oblige pass rusher Bradley Chubb.
A Browns player McCoy will not get an argument from Odell Beckham Jr., who has recruited res for him on Monday After a tweet stating his release with "Cleveland!"
McCoy would probably also get a thumbs-up from his former colleague Oklahoma Sooner Baker Mayfield.
Since 2010, McCoy has 54.5 sacks, 296 tackles, 79 for a loss and 140 quarterback hits. His bag occupies fourth place in the NFL's defensive battles since 2010.
McCoy, 31, had not been long in the NFL annual meetings, at least not at $ 13 million a year in March.
"It's not as annoying as it was four years ago," said new Bucs coach Bruce Arians at the annual coaching breakfast. "He's still a good player, and if he's here, it's our top three." [19459016Thisisadoubt]
He added, "Is the price and productivity the same? We need to find out."
McCoy left May 5 to Instagram to answer the question Criticism in a video: "Cinco de Mayo, everybody out, we're probably getting ready to drink, we're probably drinking right now, no matter," McCoy said in the video on Cinco de Mayo. I am working. I am working.
"Oh, and I have my kids with me, how many people do that? All-pro on and off the field. Do you qu ask me, heck?" Will he be ready? Does he love football? "What? You are crazy. Lost the mind. I am working. Never ask me.
