Gerald McCoy named All-Pro

TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was named second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press on Friday.

That marks the second straight year McCoy earned All-Pro honors. He becomes the first Tampa Bay player to earn consecutive All-Pro honors since cornerback Ronde Barber did it in three straight years -- 2004-’06. McCoy also is only the fourth defensive lineman in franchise history to earn multiple All-Pro awards. Warren Sapp, Simeon Rice and Lee Roy Selmon previously achieved those honors.

Last week, McCoy was selected to the Pro Bowl for the third straight season. McCoy had 8.5 sacks in 2014, despite missing three games because of injury.
