Gerald McCoy feels disrespected by Bucs for giving Ndamukong Suh his old number

By Jesse Reed

Gerald McCoy was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this offseason. The Bucs very soon afterward signed Ndamukong Suh, and then gave him McCoy’s old number.

That’s not sitting well with McCoy. He was on FS1’s “Undisputed” Wednesday and opened up about how he feels disrespected by the Bucs.

McCoy has been salty about things ever since the Bucs chose Suh over him, and that’s not going go chance any time soon. He’s a six-time Pro Bowler and one of the best interior defensive linemen in the NFL, so it’s understandable he’d feel slighted.

In the end, this will probably benefit his new team, the Carolina Panthers, who just so happen to play his old team twice a year.
