The Gerald McCoy drama seems to continue. But this time, he made himself look bad.

The former Buccaneers defensive tackle was on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed on Fox Sports to talk about what he experienced this offseason with Tampa Bay before and after his release.

Among the things he said, McCoy ultimately voiced his displeasure with the Buccaneers giving Ndamukong Suh the number 93 he wore while with the Bucs. He adds that the greatest players of the organization get their numbers retired while making reference to his Pro Bowl and All-Pro nods, hence feeling disrespected by the team as he called himself one of the greatest players to ever play the organization. This was after he said he understood the signing because the team had to sign someone to replace a player of his own caliber.

Humble McCoy, he was not. Self-righteous McCoy, he was.

The veteran defensive tackle let it all out on the show and even discussed what went on behind the scenes (sort of?) of a potential new deal between he and the Buccaneers. Check out the video below.
