It’s been four years since Chip Kelly and traded LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso and McCoy has never forgiven the former NFL head coach.
When rumors surfaced about the reports of the Philadelphia Eagles trying to bring him back in a trade, McCoy downplayed the rumors.
“I heard about it,” McCoy said of the reports, 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.”
He did, however, address that he never should have left the Eagles in the first place.
“I should have never gotten traded [from Philadelphia] anyway,” McCoy said (via ESPN). “I was killing stuff, you know? But I don’t ever really pay too much attention to it. This week we got the Texans. I’ll worry about that. Good defense, lot of big-name guys on that defensive line. I got my hands full this week. Last week was my first week of really getting out there running, try to get some rust off and actually get going play after play. Really felt good.
In the sport of football, McCoy is on the wrong side of 30 and has had a very slow start to the 2018 season, rushing for just 170 yards and zero touchdowns through four weeks.
