Gerald McCoy even better than last year, according to Bucs LB



TAMPA - DT Gerald McCoy continues to draw rave reviews, with the latest coming from teammate Jonathan Casillas.

The Bucs linebacker said McCoy’s play pops out on every film – from a game or practice – and that McCoy seems even better this year than he was during last year’s All-Pro campaign.

“Gerald is playing lights out right now,” Casillas said. “He played at a high level last year, and he’s better than last year, which is very scary.”

So what’s better about McCoy?

“Everything,” Casillas said. “I’m serious. It looks like he’s stronger. He’s faster. He’s quicker. At this point, it’s like, what else more can you do from last year’s campaign? His technique is crisp. He looks explosive.

“I think he’s setting the standard for the way the Bucs need to play football.”
