Browns set to host free agent, All-Pro DT Gerald McCoy

Free agent defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, a three-time first-team All-Pro with six Pro Bowls under his belt, is set to visit the Browns in Berea on Friday, general manager John Dorsey confirmed Thursday.

"He's a good player," said Dorsey, who spoke with reporters after the 2021 NFL Draft press conference in Cleveland's Public Square. "Like I've always told you all, I will turn over every stone and it just so happens he'll may be in the city of Cleveland tomorrow.

"We're going to turn over every rock and let's just see what happens. It's just a visit."

McCoy, 31, spent the past nine seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, racking up 54.5 sacks and 297 tackles. He made the Pro Bowl in six straight seasons from 2012-17 and landed on the All-Pro first-team defense from 2012-14.

McCoy, an Oklahoma alum who was the No. 3 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, was released by the Buccaneers earlier this week.

"It's a chance to kind of get a chance to meet each other one on one," Dorsey said. "Let's find out who Gerald is and it also gives Gerald a chance to see who the Cleveland Browns are and what direction we're headed.

"With regards to his ability to play the game of football, he can still play the game of football."
