Bucs to Start Talks With First Round Pick Gerald McCoy Next Week

Pewter Report says that the Bucs are planning on starting talks with #1 pick Gerald McCoy at some point next week:

Rookie Gerald McCoy will be paying close attention to his former quarterback for the next few weeks as the St. Louis Rams and reps for Sam Bradford started contract negotiations on Friday. This is big news for McCoy because the same agent, CAA’s Ben Dogra, represents both players and a deal in place for Bradford would help to get the ball rolling for McCoy and his contract. McCoy, selected out of Oklahoma with the third overall pick by the Buccaneers, has stated that he would like to report to training camp on time, which starts July 31st. With that being said, expect McCoy and the Bucs to commence contract talks within the next week or so with McCoy looking at a substantial sum of money. He will be looking at something close to what defensive tackle Tyson Jackson received last year – a five-year, $57 million contract.
