The Colts are always looking to add better pieces to their team. A big-time player just got released, and he could be a good fit in Indy.
Gerald McCoy got released from Tampa Bay earlier this week. Both parties decided that it was time for them to move on from each other. Now McCoy is an unrestricted free agent and can sign with anyone. Would he be a good fit in Indianapolis?
McCoy’s production on the field cannot be questioned. The man has made six Pro Bowls and was named First Team All-Pro once as well. He puts constant pressure on the quarterback and makes life miserable for the offense. He is a one man wrecking machine.
Off the field, McCoy has been nothing but an upstanding citizen. He does great charity work and has donated a bunch of money to various causes. He is a great guy in the locker room and is widely respected around the league. McCoy checks all the boxes you could want.
That’s why he would work so well with the Colts. They have the money to pay him what he wants and they could pair him with Justin Houston on the same side. That would be a terrifying pass rushing combination for opposing quarterbacks. And it gives the defensive line that much more depth.
McCoy would make an instant impact along the Indy defensive line. He would also make an immediate impact in the locker room as a good leader. He could provide a lot of things to the organization to make them better. Chris Ballard definitely has some interest.
The Colts won’t overpay McCoy, but they will do their due diligence. If he does sign with them, it would be a huge move this late in the offseason.
