Report: Bucs Start Talks With Gerald McCoy

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

There’s been a lot of talk about a possible contract extension for Ndamukong Suh this offseason, but he’s not the only defensive tackle taken early in the 2010 draft who is in line for a new deal.

Gerald McCoy was taken a pick after Suh and has been a standout performer for the Buccaneers since pretty much the moment he first took the field in Tampa.

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Buccaneers General Manager Jason Licht reached out to McCoy’s agent Ben Dogra last week to get the ball rolling on talks about a new deal.

Per Stroud, the conversations could result in a new deal before the start of training camp although there’s no firm timetable or deadline in place to get a deal done.
