Dallas Cowboys: DT Gerald McCoy Agrees to Three-Year Deal

The Dallas Cowboys have been busy all day making moves to secure a competitive roster for 2020. Sean Lee and Darian Thompson both re-signed with the team. Now, the Cowboys have made yet another move, one that could have an immediate impact.

According to ESPN’s Todd Archer, the Cowboys have agreed to a three-year deal with veteran defensive lineman Gerald McCoy worth 18.3 million (9 million guaranteed).

McCoy spent last season with the Carolina Panthers after eight years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Over his 10-year career, he has 59.5 sacks (at least five in each of the last eight seasons). Also, he’s been to six Pro Bowls and been named an All-Pro five times.

He can rush from either the 3-technique or the edge which not only makes him a Robert Quinn replacement but an upgrade on the interior after losing Maliek Collins to free agency.

This is a pretty significant free-agent grab for the Dallas Cowboys and makes the need for an interior lineman a little less important in the draft, even though they should still add another. More details to come.
