Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy may be headed for the AFC North.

Word of the Browns interest in his services predated his release in Tampa and the Bengals were identified as another interested party on Wednesday. It appears the Ravens are in the mix as well.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports that the Ravens are on McCoy’s short list as he looks for a new team. McCoy is reportedly strongly considering three or four teams and the Browns are also on that list.

Cabot adds that McCoy is likely to take a visit to meet with the Browns as he doesn’t know the members of their defensive coaching staff. Per the report, a chance to advance to the playoffs is expected to factor into the choice along with his comfort level with the players and coaches in the organization.

UPDATE 3:47 p.m. ET: Browns General Manager John Dorsey said that McCoy will visit the team on Friday.

  1. He’ll be a Raven.
    Once he meets the Ravens staff and sees their facility it’s ALWAYS the deal closer.
    If you want to be great at defense and have a shot at playoff greatness, you go to the Ravens.

  2. Gotta be a way of driving price on the Browns because you’d have to be crazy to think Baltimore is winning anything with the Pats in the conference.

    Bizarre.

    Unless of course, NE isn’t interested.

  3. I don’t know.
    Has talent and good teammate , but 9-10 million for a rotational D tackle? You already have Richardson and Oginjobi,and Coley. But, on the other hand these four rotating would be dynamic.

  4. Baltimore is loaded with defensive tackles. They have Brandon Williams, Michael Price, Willie Henry and a bunch of other young ascending talent The ravens are just doing their due diligence. They will not overpay for McCoy. If anything, McCoy’s agent is using the Ravens’ fake interest to drive up the price. The Browns will ultimately overpay for an aging player. We’ll see!
