Gerald McCoy Reaches Milestone vs. Titans

Gerald McCoy tied a Buccaneer legend on the team's all-time sack list.


Since entering the NFL in 2011, Gerald McCoy has established himself as one of the best pass-rushing defensive tackles in the league. He's also building a resume as one of the best sack artists in Bucs history.

On Sunday against the Titans, McCoy recorded the 28th sack of his career, tying him with Ronde Barber for the seventh-most in team history. Since 2012, he's earned 24 sacks, the most of any defensive tackle in the NFL. 

McCoy averaged nine sacks per season in 2013 and 2014. Should he reach that number again this year, he could move up three spots, to No. 4, on the Bucs' all-time list. Lee Roy Selmon (78.5), Warren Sapp (77), Simeon Rice (69.5) and David Logan (39) round out the top four.

McCoy was rated as the top defensive tackle against the pass last season by Pro Football Focus, earning his third Pro Bowl nomination along the way. He was the Bucs' second-highest rated defensive player against Tennessee and the team's top-rated pass-rusher.
