The third overall pick in the 2010 officially has his fourth team.

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has signed with the Raiders. The team announced the move on Wednesday.

McCoy, a six-time Pro Bowler, spent nine seasons with the Buccaneers. Cut by Tampa two years ago, he signed with the Panthers. He joined the Cowboys in 2020, but he suffered ruptured a quad tendon during training camp.

In 2019, he started all 16 games for the Panthers.

The Raiders have made no secret about the need to improve their defense, as they try to get to the playoffs for the first time in what will be coach Jon Gruden’s fourth season back with the team.

  1. I like this signing. It also makes me wonder if Solomon Thomas isn’t on the roster for long. I’ve not heard much about him in camp, and have heard a lot of praise for a lot of other players, Darius Philon even who was out of the league last season.

  2. Raiders cap situation isnt the best so that means we got him on a respectable deal.
    Shame players like Mo Hurst or PJ Hall never took the next step we needed, but if he returns to his form like when he played for the Panthers thats still a huge improvement over what we had.

  3. another GREAT MOVE! can’t wait to shut all the haters up this year!!!

  4. Jon Gruden is robbing them without a mask.

    He is a loud mouth phony that won the Super Bowl with Tony Dungy’s team and has been stealing from the owners every since.

  5. This is a good signing that sends a message to the defense that nobody is safe at this time, get your self together or be in the unemployment line for the year. Good luck Mr.McCoy we really need you to show this young team how to win!

  6. Would’ve like to see him come back to the Bucs as depth. As a Bucs fan- he was the man on some awful Bucs teams for years, couldn’t help but think of him after the Bucs won the SB.

    How come Tony Dungy never won a Super Bowl with “Tony Dungy’s team?”
