HENDERSON, Nev. (AP)The Las Vegas Raiders signed free agent defensive tackle Gerald McCoy on Wednesday.

McCoy adds pass rushing depth to the Raiders interior defensive line after sitting out all of last season with a torn quadriceps.

McCoy was originally drafted third overall by Tampa Bay in 2010. He spent his first nine seasons with the Buccaneers before playing for Carolina in 2019 and signing with Dallas last season.

McCoy has made six Pro Bowls and was a first-team All-Pro in 2013. He has 59 1/2 sacks with 79 tackles for loss, 24 passes defensed, six forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries in 139 career games.

He was one of nine players with at least five sacks every season from 2012-19.
