McCoy to Eagles: 5 thoughts on a potential trade

According to a report, the Eagles have contacted the Buffalo Bills about potentially bringing back running back LeSean McCoy.

"Just to get out in front of this LeSean thing a little bit the best I can...."

It's a tough blow for an Eagles team that has been dealing with injuries to key players.

A native of Pittsburgh, McCoy's name has been attached in recent days with a return to the Super Bowl champions after the Eagles' starting running back, Jay Ajayi, was ruled out for the season with an ACL tear.

And then there's the off-field issue.

But I'll ask you.

The NFL's trade deadline is October 30, the day after the Bills host the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football in Week 8. "He's a valuable member of our football team, and I'm going to leave it at that". "So I would just imagine they do, it's just kind of logical sense". The deal, which was completed before Ajayi's injury, created $6.5 million in cap space this season and $11.7 million more next year for Philadelphia.

McCoy, the Eagles' all-time leading rusher, played the first six seasons of his career with the Eagles, with two All-Pro finishes.

That said, Smallwood has proven he can more than hold his own in the passing game and overall he's put together a couple of really solid contests (5.6 ypc and a touchdown against the Colts in Week 3, a TD catch and 44 yards receiving in the loss last week to the Vikings).

McCoy is being sued by his ex-girlfriend in Georgia, who accuses him of being involved in a July home invasion in which she was beaten and robbed of jewelry. While McCoy may see a consistent 12-14 touches if traded, the potential cause for concern could come down to how Doug Pederson hands out snaps. McCoy's ex-girlfriend Delicia Cordon also accuses McCoy of physical abuse against her, against his son and against his dog.
