The Packers should pursue Gerald McCoy in free agency

The Green Bay Packers are set to enter the NFL offseason with just a few needs to make the leap into the Super Bowl. After putting together an impressive 13-3 regular season, the Packers made it all the way to the NFC Championship Game. Unfortunately, they ended up losing to the San Francisco 49ers by a final score of 37-20.

Now, Brian Gutekunst will have to spend wisely in free agency and will need to focus on bringing in talent in the 2020 NFL Draft. In free agency, however, finding impact players who are simply looking to compete for a ring will be key.

One player that the Packers should target is defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. Pairing McCoy with current star Kenny Clark would be lethal. It would also help the Green Bay defense shut down the run game, which was their Achilles heel against the 49ers.

In 2019 with the Carolina Panthers, McCoy ended up compiling 37 total tackles to go along with five sacks and two defended passes. His numbers were down from what they once were with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, he could be a major help for Mike Pettine and the Green Bay defense.

McCoy may end up being out of the Packers’ price range. On the other hand, if winning is the main key for the former superstar defensive lineman, McCoy would consider a reasonable short-term offer from the Packers to help take them to the promised land.

Let’s take a look at two major reasons the Packers should pursue McCoy this offseason.
