Which teams are Superbowl contenders for 2020 right now? Gerald McCoy has made it know he want’s to pick one of the Superbowl contenders.
NFL teams looking for some help on the defensive line got some bad news on Friday. This, when former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. McCoy was released by the team during the week. He told reporters that he plans on signing with a team that has a chance to win the Lombardi Trophy next season. Who are some of these Super Bowl contenders?
“I want to win,” the six-time Pro Bowler said. “I’m not worried about where I’m living. Wherever I got to go to win. … Everybody’s open.”
The Buccaneers released McCoy because they were unable to restructure his contract to give themselves some salary cap relief and did not want to pay him the $13 million he was due next season. The team eventually came to terms on a one-year deal with free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who played for the Los Angeles Rams last season.
According to reports, the Cleveland Browns have emerged as frontrunners to sign McCoy after making a lot of noise during the offseason, bringing in players like Odell Beckham Jr., Sheldon Richardson, and Kareem Hunt.

Browns general manager John Dorsey said he scheduled a meeting with Gerald McCoy so both sides can determine if they are a good fit for each other.
Other teams interested in the third selection of the 2010 NFL Draft include the Baltimore Ravens, who feel they have a good chance to sign McCoy because defensive line coach Joe Cullen, who coached McCoy from 2014 to 2015 has a very good relationship with him.
Despite McCoy’s numbers dipping slightly in 2018, Dorsey believes the 31-year-old still has plenty left in the tank. “With regards to his ability to play the game of football, he can still play the game of football,” Dorsey said.
Gerald McCoy, who finished with six sacks last season, has 54½ sacks in 123 career games. He made the Pro Bowl from 2012 to 2017, and was also an All-Pro selection in 2013.
