However, when a talent like Gerald McCoy becomes available, due diligence demands they at least kick the tires.

The Browns could use McCoy, because behind starting defensive tackles Sheldon Richardson and Larry Ogunjobi, the team is weak.

After meeting with the Cleveland Browns on Friday and departing the team's facility without a deal, free agent defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is reportedly set to visit with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday.

The addition of McCoy would give the Browns four Pro Bowlers on the defensive line, making them the fifth franchise since 1970 to enter a season with four Pro Bowlers on the defensive line, according to NFL Network.

In his 19-year career, Howard appeared in 1,208 games with 900 starts while averaging 13.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists. He averaged 15.3 points and 7.5 rebounds for his career, helping MI reach consecutive Final Fours in 1992 and 1993.

The tweet had most fans and experts believing that Los Angeles would look to add the valuable player to the interior part of the defensive line by going after McCoy.

McCoy, 31, had six sacks and a team-leading 21 quarterback pressures in 2018, when the Bucs went 5-11 and missed the playoffs for the 11th consecutive season. He began his professional career with the Detroit Lions after he was selected in the first round (No. 2 overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft. "He's a great person".

McCoy, who some speculated was a trade target of the Browns, was released from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week, because everything is coming up Browns right now, and we're still not sure how to make sense of it all, so let's all just enjoy this.
