The NFL offseason’s first bona fide bombshell was dropped when Adam Schefter announced that the Philadelphia Eagles would be trading RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for LB Kiko Alonso. Listed below are five takeaways from this amazing development.
David Pride Freesportspicksdaily.com writes “Could someone tell Chip this isn’t college anymore. Your Oregon players aren’t translating. Dennis Dixon was garbage, Josh Huff isn’t doing anything, I’m just starting to hate my hometown with this stupidity in Basketball, football, baseball.”
Over $9 million was freed up in cap space for the Eagles by trading McCoy to the Bills. Philadelphia has entered the free agent time zone, could there be something exciting could be imminent for the organization.
Did LeSean McCoy get a long with the management? May be the running back on borrowed time? This decision could’ve been actuated internally, and we may not know if it’s the right call until deep into 2015.
“Chip Kelly must feel a RB may be inserted in his system and be as productive as McCoy. He’s about to learn that he’s wrong. This is rare talent.”
LeSean McCoy is simply 26, but has recently amassed 1,461 carries at the NFL level, along with his 584 carries with the Pittsburgh Panthers. The tread might not be as deep on the tires and the wheels could be wobbly.
