One question that swirled as the Buffalo Bills embarked on a season with low expectations was what would happen with star running back LeSean McCoy. With a shuffled offense, a rookie quarterback, and a losing season ahead (not to mention several alleged civil incidents that came up in the offseason), people were wondering if McCoy could be traded at some point.
Now we can believe at least one team is exploring the option, with WIVB’s Josh Reed reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have reached out to Buffalo discussing trading McCoy back to the team where he grew into an NFL star (and where he’s the all-time leading rusher). The Eagles, who defeated the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl last year, are currently scuffling at 2-3 and lost their starting runner Jay Ajayi to a torn ACL.
