Buccaneers make Gerald McCoy highest paid DT in NFL history (Shutdown Corner) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
There aren't many defensive tackles who are the face of their franchise, but Gerald McCoy probably is the face of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At very least, he's paid like it now. McCoy signed a contract extension through the 2021 season, giving him a seven-year deal that's worth up to $98 million. That includes more than $51 million in guaranteed money, USA Today's Tom Pelissero reported. The average of more than $14 million per season is the most in NFL history for a defensive tackle. [ Join FanDuel.com's $2.5M Week 8 fantasy league: $25 to enter; top 21,905 teams paid ] Somewhere, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh perked up. He'll be a free agent after this season and it's a good bet he'll get a contract somewhere in McCoy's range. McCoy has earned his deal. Pro Football Focus graded him as the fourth-best player in all of the NFL last season, right behind Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.  Defensive tackles don't always get a ton of attention, but the sheer volume of McCoy's contract will put him in a different spotlight. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

DT McCoy signs 7-year deal with Bucs (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has signed a seven-year extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth $98 million, making McCoy the highest-paid player at his position. McCoy, a 2013 All-Pro, will get $51.5 million guaranteed, the most ever given to a defensive tackle in NFL history. The deal was concluded Saturday by McCoy's agent, Ben Dogra, and Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht. ''Gerald is extremely excited to remain with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is especially thankful to Bucs owners, coaches, and Jason Licht for working so hard throughout the process,'' Dogra said.

NFL Draft Watch: King says Winston is '10 times' the prospect Mariota is (Shutdown Corner) Courtesy of
The conversation will grow over the next six months. So let’s start it early. You’re a quarterback-needy team and your choice is this: Florida State's Jameis Winston or Oregon's Marcus Mariota. On the surface, it appears easy. Winston has trouble written all over him, with off-field problems galore, and Mariota, the clean record and clean-throwing (zero interceptions in 188 passes this season) quarterback, is the obvious choice. Right? It’s not that clear-cut. Not at all. [ Join FanDuel.com's $2.5M Week 8 fantasy league: $25 to enter; top 21,905 teams paid ] If we are to boil the players down simply on football talent and quarterbacking potential on the next level, Winston — not Mariota — might be the more enticing prospect. So says former NFL quarterback and Yahoo NFL analyst Shaun King. I asked King to ignore character completely, for argument's sake, and strictly grade each player on their talent and NFL upside. “In my opinion, if I am grading them, Winston is 10 times the prospect Mariota is,” King said. What, then, makes Winston so special? “Physically, he has great size — 6-4, very sturdy build. Built like a pro prospect. Big-time arm — can make all the throws. Great intangibles. Winner. Big-time, big-platform résumé. “He plays his best on the brightest stages. Last year in the Clemson game, the second half of the national title game, this year’s Notre Dame game. Early in the season, second half against [Oklahoma State], he always plays his best in those moments. He just has a knack for it.” Yahoo! Thu, Oct 23
 
Polian, Wolf nominated for Hall of Fame (The Associated Press) Courtesy of
Former general managers Bill Polian and Ron Wolf were selected Wednesday as contributor finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's class of 2015. Polian and Wolf were chosen by the Hall of Fame's contributor committee. Inductees will be selected on Jan. 31, the day before the Super Bowl, in Phoenix. Polian was the GM for the Bills when they made four consecutive Super Bowls, and for the Colts when they won the championship in 2006. Yahoo! Wed, Oct 22
 
Banged-up Falcons face tough Lions test in London (The Associated Press) Courtesy of
Frankly, the Falcons as a team are looking questionable for Sunday's London showpiece game against the Detroit Lions. To score an upset and jump back into the thick of the NFC South race, Falcons players say they'll need to run the ball with authority - something they've rarely managed in a 2-5 season. Yahoo!
