Things have yet to progress to the point of a visit, but there are coaches who wouldn't be opposed to bringing McCoy aboard.
New Browns offensive coordinator Todd Monken served under the same capacity with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the past three seasons and was asked by general manager John Dorsey about McCoy.
"I think a lot of Gerald. He was an outstanding football player for us and he's had a tremendous career. I like Gerald a lot," Monken said.
Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. also petitioned for Cleveland to sign McCoy.
Not everyone is sold, however.
"What they decide to do, I'll be OK with and I'll accept it and move on, but I think we're good with what we have," defensive end Myles Garrett said Tuesday.
