Bills running back LeSean McCoy said this week that he has no regrets about the comments he made regarding Eagles coach Chip Kelly after the Eagles traded him to the Bills this offseason.
McCoy said that he has no issues with Kelly, but that he stands by his belief that the Eagles coach got rid of “all the good black players” in the years since coming to Philadelphia. On a conference call with Buffalo media on Wednesday, Kelly said he also has no issues with the former Eagle and that he looks forward to a chance to see him on Sunday.
“I’d love to shake LeSean’s hand,” Kelly said, via the Buffalo News. “I tried to call him after. And I talked to his agent after we traded him. I always wanted to talk to LeSean. Again, I have no issues with LeSean at all. He has a great personality, an infectious personality. I have tremendous respect for LeSean.”
Kelly did express some regret about the way the trade was handled, specifically the fact that he didn’t speak to McCoy before media reports about the trade surfaced. He didn’t express any about swapping out McCoy for DeMarco Murray, who has been expressing his own issues with Kelly and the Eagles offense this week.
“I don’t even look at it that way because you only talk about who you have on your team,” Kelly said. “I’ve never been a comparison guy. I don’t know what you get out of comparing things like that. I think they’re both outstanding running backs. LeSean’s having a great year. We’ll have our hands full defensively.”
We’ll find out Sunday whether Kelly will have his hands full of Murray as well.
