Once upon a time, the Detroit Lions had to decide between drafting Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hoping McCoy finally showcases the skill that made that a tough decision for the Lions just a few short years ago.
McCoy has not lived up to his potential since joining the Bucs roster, but he appears determined and ready to impress in 2012.
Injuries have slowed him, to be sure, but 2012 is a fresh start. "Gerald McCoy is out here on a mission,” Bucs defensive tackle Roy Miller said, per Ira Kaufman of The Tampa Tribune.
He’s going against two Pro Bowl guards every day in Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph, and he’s making plays all over the field. When you’ve got a guy with that kind of talent on a mission like that, something dangerous could happen.
That is just the kind of buzz Tampa Bay fans are hoping for.
