It’s too early to discuss Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl 2020 chances. Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy had a few things to get off his chest on Sunday after some recent criticism from head coach Bruce Arians and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who weren’t happy that McCoy missed the team’s voluntary offseason program.
“He’s not as disruptive as he was four years ago, but he’s still a good player,” Arians said. Arians also denied a report by the Tampa bay Times that he instructed McCoy to stay home during the team’s optional veteran minicamp two weeks ago.
“I don’t know who the hell said that,” Arians said. “It’s up to him. We have open arms. If he wants to be here, practicing with us, that’s great. He’s under contract and part of the team, so yeah, I mean, that’s the player’s decision. That’s all I can [say].”
For his part, Gerald McCoy didn’t directly address his coaches, but he made a point to let his fans know what he has been up to during the offseason, posting a video of himself after a workout session. Perhaps McCoy is a better fit for the Cleveland Browns next season.

“Cinco de Mayo. Everybody out, probably getting ready to go drink, probably drinking right now. Don’t matter. They want to question me? This is what I do on Cinco de Mayo. I work. I work,” said Gerald McCoy, covered in sweat inside a gymnasium.
Gerald McCoy to the Browns?
McCoy then panned the camera to show his kids playing basketball in the background.
“Oh and I’ve got my kids with me. How many people doing that?” McCoy said. “All-Pro on and off the field. Wanna question me? The heck? Is he gonna be ready? Do he love football? What?! Y’all crazy. Lost y’all mind. I work. Don’t you ever question me!”
You can bet on the Super Bowl winner, however it won’t be the Bucs!
With the team starting a mandatory mini-camp in June, it will be interesting to see if Gerald McCoy rejoins his teammates or stays away. If he decides to stay away, the team can fine him up to $60,000 for unexcused absences.
