The tides may be changing for Gerald McCoy, but the Carolina Panthers‘ newest acquisition wants to be certain that the record is directly on his time as a Buccaneer.
On the latest edition of the RapSheet + Friends podcast, McCoy took a moment to peel the curtain back and passionately address his tenure with the Bucs, amidst various reports coming out in recent weeks regarding his relationship with the company that released him on May 20 after nine decades of service.
„Lots of people believe that I, I don’t understand, turned my back on them disrespected them. I will never do that. I’ll never say anything bad about Tampa. I will never say anything negative concerning Tampa,“ McCoy told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. „It isn’t important how long was said about me; it will not be reciprocated because I understand that organization changed my life and the time I had there was great.
„The fans, all of the coaches I experienced, all the players I experienced, my entire time in Tampa was a joy and something I’ll never forget. But everything happens for a reason and my time in Tampa just came to an end.“
McCoy went on to reiterate his thoughts on loyalty, stating that, while he’ll never forget his former staff, he’s a Carolina Panther now and his new team will probably get“all Gerald“ at every facet. In addition, he made sure to emphasize NFL greats like Warren Sapp and Randy Moss as players that created a lasting legacy with their original team before leaving for greener pastures and maintaining their standing as game-changers.
McCoy may no longer be in Tampa, however, provided that the creation is still there in Charlotte, he must have no trouble crafting a brand new identity as a member of the Panthers‘ defensive front.
