Gerald McCoy's visit with the Browns has concluded. No contract, but I'm told Cleveland is very much in the race. He'll have a number of teams to choose from. I'm told that this isn't about money. He really wants to go to a contender. He's never gotten to play in a postseason game.

I'm told that Ndamukong Suh officially signed his contract (from France) and will be in Tampa next week for a physical. The decision hasn't been made as to when his first practice will be but he'll definitely be taking part in mandatory minicamp June 4-6.

Buccaneers officially have reached agreement with former Rams' DT Ndamukong Suh on a one-year, $9.25 million deal that with incentives is worth up to $10 million, per source.

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians was asked about Ndamukong Suh today. "I can't talk about him. He's not on my team,'' Arians said. He was then reminded that Suh is a free agent and he can actually talk about him — "He's a hell of a player so we'll see.''

Ndamukong Suh and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finalizing a one-year deal, a source tells ESPN. Barring any late hang ups, Suh is now expected to be a Buccaneer. Suh was interested in playing for Tampa's new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. Plus, no state tax in Florida, making a deal there more attractive.

With Gerald McCoy cut, the Buccaneers' defense is arguably worst in the NFL. That's especially the case with Jason Pierre-Paul expected to miss time. Linebacker is a strength with Lavonte David and Devin White and Vita Vea seems legit, but otherwise it's journeymen and unproven youth. The Bucs have a lot of work to do.

Bucs 'mutually part ways' with longtime DT McCoy

Gerald McCoy, a six-time Pro Bowler and arguably Tampa Bay's most visible player for nearly a decade, has departed from the team. He didn't show up for the Bucs' offseason program that began last month.

This Just In  

DT Gerald McCoy has been informed by the Bucs of their plans to release him after nine seasons, first reported by Tampa Bay Times; confirmed by ESPN source. The team decided not to pay him the $13 million salary he was owed for 2019.

Rookie Devin White has had a really strong first week with the Bucs, and Bruce Arians is laying down the law already, even in practices that are technically "optional."

No Gerald McCoy for the Bucs' first OTA practice Tuesday. Attendance for these is voluntary. He has not been present for any other portion of the offseason program either.

In his first practice with veterans, Devin White picked off Jameis Winston. That's his third pick since he's been in Tampa. I was really impressed with the way he led the huddle. "Devin's not shy. That's what we like about him," Bruce Arians said. "He jumped out, [learned] the defense quickly for today's installation and wasn't bashful about calling the defense and getting everybody lined up."

Coach Arians said Vernon Hargreaves was not mentally ready to practice today, but would not go beyond that. "You'd have to talk to Vernon. He's gotta get his mind right to practice," Arians said. The Bucs picked up the fifth-year option on Hargreaves' contract just three weeks ago. Carlton Davis had a physical issue that forced him to leave practice early.

The Bucs have signed four tryout players from this past weekend's rookie camp: safety D'Cota Dixon, outside linebacker David Kenney, tackle Riley Mayfield and wide receiver Spencer Schnell. Tackle Israel Helms and wide receiver Malik Taylor were waived, tight end Isaiah Searight was waived/injured and running back Kerwynn Williams was released.
