LeSean McCoy “heard about” trade rumors, focused on “the job”

Bills running back LeSean McCoy has heard the same chatter as everyone else.

There was a report this week that the Eagles called the Bills about the possibility of a trade that would bring McCoy back to Philadelphia and head coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that the team gets calls all the time. McDermott didn’t rule out anything and McCoy said on Wednesday that he hasn’t spoken to the team about anything at this point.

McCoy also said that his attention is going to be on work rather than on trade chatter.

“I heard about it,” McCoy said, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. “I kind of just stay focused on the job, the task at hand. I’ll let that stuff work itself out. We’ll see what happens.”

McCoy added that he “should have never gotten traded” from the Eagles in 2015 because he was “killing stuff” with the team during his time in Philadelphia. Chip Kelly made the call to trade McCoy at that time, but he’s long gone from the team and Jay Ajayi‘s injury could make them motivated buyers on the trade market. That may not add up to a McCoy return, but the weeks leading up to the trade deadline figure to generate more talk out of Philly.

  1. Rather lose then bring Shady back and that’s nothing to do with baby mama drama. Assaulting Philly Police, 20 Cent tips,throwing women off a party bus in the middle of the night for not doing extras..no thank you.

  2. Bills trading McCoy would be like putting up a billboard that says “We’re done this season. Please tune in again next year.”

    Is that sign normally put up when tickets go on sale, or do they wait for kickoff of the first game of the season?

    That’s pretty funny considering I watched them participate in playoffs last year along with 20 other teams watching them as well.

    Maybe your team was a spectator as well ?

    Well since they knocked a ton of people out of football pools when they beat the Vikings only thing left is to try and get that first pick in the draft.

  6. I watched the interview. He didn’t say he wanted to stay with the Bills. I think his heart is still in P.A. Alonzo for McCoy was a good trade for the Bills. Let’s move him again for some picks while he has value (and sore ribs).

  7. They “closed for business” in 2017 when they gave up the draft pick and passed on Patrick Mahommes

  8. Humm? Play the season with the Bills or the Eagles? Easy choice! One is going nowhere and the other might make the playoffs!

  9. ” in 2015 because he was “killing stuff” with the team ”

    Now, in 2018, he’s having other people do those sorts of things for him.

    What would the Bills get for him at this point? A seventh for sixth round pick swap?

  10. I don’t understand all this hate for Shady McCoy. The guy’s a class act. He got the nickname “Shady” cuz the sun irritates his skin and he has to stand in the shade, right?

  11. Philly is talking a 2nd & a 3rd. Are the Bills going to the Superbowl this year ?
    Probably not. Their schedule gets easier in the 2nd half of the season. They may get to the playoffs, probably not.
    Could they get some good Olineman in the 2nd & 3rd ? Along with the 10 picks they already have for 2019 and $ 60+ Million in cap space and a good core of young players, it may not be a bad idea.

    Philly isn’t offering a 2nd and a 3rd. That’s the Bills asking price which they won’t get

    Yes, you must be so proud that the jills were one and done in the playoffs last season. How are their playoffs prospects for THIS season? Maybe they’ll be spectators for the next few decades.

  14. I am a HUGE homer for the Bills. But you have to believe McCoy is BEGGING to get off the sinking ship that is Buffalo. McCoy’s got this season & likely most of next to be productive, but on a productive team. Buffalo as a whole as a franchise is in shambles from top-down. If I’m McCoy I definitely don’t want to waste whatever I’ve got left in….Buffalo. And again, I live here & LOVE the Bills. But Philly now DESPERATELY needs a back if they want to compete with the Rams & Gurley & the Saints with Kamara & Ingram. So maybe McCoy & a 4th or 5th for a 3rd or 4th? If I’m Philly though I’m going after Bell…since Philly is going to need a back anyway next season.

    GO BILLS!!!!

  15. You can tell from McCoys response that he is not happy playing for McDermott & Beane. He knows they are in over their heads as they dismantle the team to create a new one in their own image. Backed into the playoffs last year only to score 3 points. Roller coaster ride this year so far. Traded the only veteran QB they had and went with “essentially” 2 rookie QB’s. Bestowed nearly 60 million in dead cap space upon the team with their fruitless trades and cuts. Pretty much abandoned the run, and put it all on a rookie QB until last week and only after second questioning by the medial and basically every football expert in the country. I dont blame Shady for his attitude and his desire to go play for his home team.

  16. McCoy saying “I should never have been traded anyway” makes me think he wants to go back to Philly.

    If the Eagles make a good enough offer, the Bills should ask McCoy if he wants to go home. If he says yes, which I am 99% certain he would, then you make the trade.
