It certainly seems like an emotional Gerald McCoy just said his goodbye to the fan base of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the team’s 34-32 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. McCoy was drafted third overall in 2010 by the Buccaneers and has been with the team ever since. He has been a very good player for the Buccaneers over the years, but is due $13 million dollars next season and his production simply isn’t matching that number. He will also be 31 years old when next season begins.

During his time in Tampa Bay, McCoy has recorded 54.5 sacks, 292 tackles and 79 tackles for loss. He only finished with six sacks this season, which is the second year in a row he has posted that number.
