Eagles RB coach on Chip Kelly: 'Not a racist at all'


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/4/2015) Eagles coach Chip Kelly didn't catch a break when former running back LeSean McCoy didn't reverse course on on Tuesday about his comments that the coach uses race as a determining factor on whether to keep a player.

Kelly is getting support from someone on his own staff though. Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley, who is close to McCoy, stood up for Kelly, per ESPN.com.

"Chip is not a racist at all," Staley said. "Chip and I work well together. I mean, everybody has their own opinion. I'm not here to talk about [Tra Thomas] or to talk about what McCoy is talking about. I know from my relationship with Chip, that's definitely far-fetched. We're all here to do a job, and that's football, so don't take a chapter and make it a book."

After being traded to the Bills, McCoy said in an interview with ESPN The Magazine that Kelly "got rid of all the good black players."


Bills RB LeSean McCoy doesn't reverse course on Chip Kelly comments


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/3/2015) Bills running back LeSean McCoy stayed true to his comments regarding Eagles coach Chip Kelly, per ESPN.com.

McCoy spoke publicly on Wednesday for the first time since accusing Kelly of prioritizing race when it came to making player personnel decisions. He didn't reverse course and stood by his original comments.

"I don't have to explain myself to nobody," McCoy said when asked to elaborate on his assertions. "Nobody. I don't. I said what I said, said what I felt at the time and I'm done with that."

McCoy said of Kelly before:

"He wants the full control. You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players. He got rid of them the fastest. That's the truth. There's a reason. ... It's hard to explain with him. But there's a reason he got rid of all the players - the good ones - like that."

Kelly responded to McCoy's comments by saying he was "wrong" and that race has never been a factor in whether to keep or release a player.


Bills RB LeSean McCoy (neck) returns to OTA's


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/3/2015) Bills running back LeSean McCoy returned to organized team activities on Wednesday after missing all of last week's OTA's because of a neck injury, per ESPN.com.

McCoy rushed for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns for the Eagles last season.


Bills RB LeSean McCoy out Wednesday with neck injury


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Bills running back LeSean McCoy did not take part in OTAs Wednesday due to a neck injury that wasn't deemed serious, per ESPN.com. 

McCoy sat out team drills, partially because Bills coach Rex Ryan did not want to take any chances during this early stage of the season. "We don't need him out there," Ryan said. 


Bills would like 300 carries from LeSean McCoy


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) New Bills running back LeSean McCoy has led the NFL with 627 carries over the last two seasons. He shouldn't expect a reduction in his workload on his new team.

Bills' running backs coach Anthony Lynn said, "I’d love to see him get that many rushes. If he’s getting that many touches, that means that we’re winning ball games, we’re running the ball. We’re controlling time of possession. We’re setting up the play action. We’re doing some good things if he touches it that many times," per the Buffalo News.

"I think he’s got a lot of good years left in him at 27, going into his seventh season," he said. "I talk to the guys all the time about Curtis Martin. This guy led the league in rushing his ninth year."


Bills RB LeSean McCoy: Chip Kelly dumped top black players


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Bills star running back LeSean McCoy has intimated that racism motivated Eagles coach Chip Kelly to rid his team of premier African-American players.

"He wants the full control," McCoy told ESPN. "You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players. He got rid of them the fastest. That's the truth. There's a reason. ... It's hard to explain with him. But there's a reason he got rid of all the players - the good ones - like that.

"... People have heard it. ... Other players have talked about it. But that's one of the things where you don't even care no more. I'm on a new team, ready to play. So it's nothing to do with Chip. I have no hatred, nothing to say negative about him. When he got [to Philadelphia], I didn't know what to expect. When he let [Pro Bowl wide receiver] DeSean [Jackson] go last year, I was like: 'C'mon, DeSean Jackson?' So it is what it is."

McCoy produced his fourth 1,000-yard season in 2014, but his YPC average fell from 5.1 in 2013 to 4.2.


Bills RB LeSean McCoy doesn't think Chip Kelly likes star players


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Bills running back LeSean McCoy, formerly of the Eagles, had some strong words about his former head coach Chip Kelly on Monday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer

"I don't think he likes or respects the stars. I'm being honest," McCoy said on Monday. "I think he likes the fact that it's 'Chip Kelly and the Eagles.' "

McCoy, 26, was traded to the Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso this offseason. In 2014, he rushed for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns. He added 28 receptions for 155 yards as a receiver out of the backfield. 


Malcolm Jenkins: Eagles players not surprised by McCoy trade


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) While most folks were shocked when the news broke in early March the Eagles were trading running back LeSean McCoy to the Bills, apparently McCoy's Philadelphia teammates were not

Safety Malcolm Jenkins told NFL Network on Wednesday it was not surprising when it was announced McCoy was being traded for linebacker Kiko Alonso.

"In the locker room a lot of guys weren't surprised by the trade, what we were more surprised of was that it was just a player-for-player trade," Jenkins said. "I think everybody thought we would have gotten more -- Kiko, plus a couple draft picks, you know, somebody else...

"You look at the style of runner that Chip wants in his offense and even though Shady is one of the best backs in the league, he's not necessarily what Chip is looking for all the time. Chip thinks he's a great running back, he knows his talent is there, but our (system) is really predicated on downhill, somebody who is going to hit the hole every time. It's about getting up in the defenders face as fast as you can and that's not necessarily Shady's running style."

The Eagles replaced McCoy's absence in the backfield by signing former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, who rushed for 1,845 yards in 2014, and former Chargers running back Ryan Mathews.

"When you talk about what you can get for -- if you are looking to acquire more talent -- I just think Shady's cap number and what we were able to get in return for Shady, I think made sense," Jenkins said. "And some guys in the locker room who kind of know what's going on weren't surprised by it."


Owner: DeMarco Murray better fit than LeSean McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/25/2015) Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said the team traded running back LeSean McCoy to the Bills and replaced him with DeMarco Murray because Murray better fits Chip Kelly's system, reports Eagles 24/7.

"We’ve been talking about the asset value of LeSean for a long time because he wasn’t the style of runner that Chip prefers, but a great player," Lurie said.

"Getting players that fit more of what he’s all about in terms of their style of play. LeSean McCoy is a great running back -- all-time franchise leader. Great guy in every way. To maximize his power spread offense, he’s always admired the one-cut runners. That’s what he admired.

"You’ve gotta let a coach try to bring in the players that fit best what he’s all about to maximize what he’s trying to accomplish. It really boils down to that. You have a decision as an owner: Do you want to fight that? Or do want to adopt it? I went all out to try and get Chip as the coach, and I’m really happy we did. He’s got a great potential future, and I’m happy to be able to provide him the resources to be able to maximize what he’s all about."

The Eagles also signed running back Ryan Mathews in free agency, who is closer in style to Murray than McCoy.


Bills 'hope to sign' FB Jerome Felton


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/10/2015) The Bills "hope to sign" fullback Jerome Felton, who would serve as the lead blocker for recently acquired LeSean McCoy, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Felton spent the past three seasons in Minnesota, then opted out of his contract.

He made the Pro Bowl in 2012 when he helped Adrian Peterson rush for 2,097 yards.

Report: Bills, LeSean McCoy agree to five-year deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) The Bills and running back LeSean McCoy have agreed to a new five-year contract once the team's trade with the Eagles is finalized Tuesday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

McCoy will make $16 million in 2015 and is due $26.5 million total in guaranteed money over the life of the deal, which totals $40 million over five years, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus, per ESPN.

McCoy was set to count for $10.25 million against the Bills' cap in 2015 on the terms of his current deal, which took him through the 2017 season. The trade agreed to by the two teams is expected to send linebacker Kiko Alonso to Philadelphia in exchange for McCoy, who finished with 1,319 rushing yards on 312 carries and 155 receiving yards on a career-low 28 receptions in 2014 while scoring five rushing touchdowns.

Report: Bills, RB LeSean McCoy closing in on contract extension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) The Bills are closing in on a contract extension for running back LeSean McCoy, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. The deal is expected to be announced once the trade becomes official on Tuesday, the first day of the new calendar year in the NFL.

McCoy was reportedly unhappy when he heard the news that traded from Philadelphia to Buffalo earlier in the week. He signed a six-year, $45.615 million contract with Philadelphia in 2012. His current contract had him making $9.75 million in 2016, $6.9 million in 2017 and $7.6 million in 2017 before becoming a free agent.

McCoy has delivered four 1,000-yard rushing seasons in the last five years, most recently rushing for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns in 2014. The Bills have had just one player top 1,000 yards rushing in the last five years.

Bills to trade Kiko Alonso to Eagles for LeSean McCoy


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) The Bills intend to trade linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Eagles for running back LeSean McCoy, CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora confirms. ESPN first reported the news of the trade, which will be a one-for-one deal.

The trade will become official next week, but the Bills have notified Alonso, who was looking to leave Buffalo, that he will be dealt.

Alonso had 159 tackles for the Bills in 2013 but missed all of last season after undergoing successful surgery to repair a torn ACL in July. He said in late February that he expected to be 100 percent before the beginning of camp. The trade reunites Alonso with Eagles coach Chip Kelly, who was his coach at Oregon.

La Canfora added that McCoy may not be pleased with the deal. The Eagles are looking to clear cap space, possibly for a draft day trade for a quarterback. Kelly was reportedly not a fan of McCoy's contract. The running back has a $10.25-million cap hit for 2015.

McCoy has delivered four 1,000-yard rushing seasons in the last five years, most recently rushing for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns in 2014. The Bills have had just one player top 1,000 yards rushing in the last five years.

Report: Eagles have not contacted McCoy about restructuring contract


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Although the Eagles are looking to lower their cap number, the team has not approached LeSean McCoy about restructuring his contract, sources told The Inquirer.

McCoy is due to count $11.95 million against the cap in 2015, but previously said he'd be willing to restructure his contract if asked, but won't take a pay cut.


Eagles RB LeSean McCoy: 'I don't want to take less money'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy reiterated Thursday that while he'd be willing to restructure his contract if asked, he would not accept a pay cut, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

"I know how hard it is to keep a team together and I want to be part of this team. But I don't want to take less money," McCoy said. "I want to figure a way to make it happen [where] we're all together."

McCoy, who is due to count $11.95 million against the cap in 2015, turned in his fourth 1,000-yard season in the last five years in 2014, finishing with 1,319 rushing yards on 312 carries and 155 receiving yards on a career-low 28 receptions. All five of his touchdowns came on the ground.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Morris will be in the Pro Bowl for a second straight year. Morris rushed for 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns in 2014. It was his third straight season of 1,000-plus rushing yards.


LeSean McCoy backs Nick Foles as Eagles' starter in 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2015) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy told the NFL Network on Friday that Nick Foles should remain the starter, and that teammates view Foles as a leader in the locker room, per the team's official website.

"I like Nick. The person and player that everybody thought he was, he is. There were a lot of injuries this year, Nick, obviously got injured. He gets all of the blame and he shouldn't," McCoy said. "I think Nick's a good quarterback. He's the leader of our team. Things just didn't work out for him this year due to injury, but we've got his back. As a team, we didn't play well enough to win and get into the playoffs."

Foles took a bit of a step back in 2014 before his season was cut short due to a broken collarbone on Nov. 2. He threw for 2,163 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games before the injury.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly expressed support for Nick Foles late in the season but did not fully endorse him as the team's quarterback of the future. However, Foles told reporters at the end of the season that he expects to be the man under center in 2015.

"We'll see what happens. It's a business. Anything can happen; I know that. But I'm sure we can work something out. And hopefully, everything does work out. They know how I feel about them. I know how they feel about me. So we'll see what happens. At the end of the day, it's a business."

Eagles RB LeSean McCoy scores fifth rushing TD in Week 16 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy scored a rushing touchdown and totaled 116 yards of offense in his team's 27-24 defeat to the Redskins on Saturday.

McCoy broke free for an 11-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. He carried the ball 22 times for 88 yards and a score, averaging 4.0 yards per attempt. He caught three of four targets for 28 yards.

Through 15 games, McCoy has rushed for 1,220 yards and five touchdowns. He'll look to end the year on a high note against the Giants.


Eagles' Chris Polk gets first-team reps in practice


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Eagles running back Chris Polk received first-team reps in practice on Wednesday, according to CSNPhilly.com.

Polk opened practice with the starters and ran a couple of plays. LeSean McCoy watched the plays from the sideline. Following practice, McCoy stressed that it wasn't a big deal. "We rotate all the time," he said. "[Running back coach Duce Staley] pulled me out. [Darren] Sproles wasn't in either." Polk is coming off a three touchdown performance in Week 15. It's possible he could find his way into more playing time given the practice situation. 


Nothing goes LeSean McCoy's way in Week 15


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy couldn't catch a break Week 15 against Dallas, his second straight game with disappointing Fantasy production after his two most productive of the season in Weeks 12 and 13.

The Eagles ran four plays inside the Cowboys' 5-yard line. Only one of them went to McCoy, and he went out of bounds after a 3-yard gain. Darren Sproles got the ball on the very next play and ran it in for the score.

On the other two -- the first two, actually -- Chris Polk took a handoff and successfully ran it in. His presence is a little troubling since he doesn't have a role apart from short-yardage situations, but the last time he got Fantasy owners all worked up, rushing for 50 yards and a score Week 9 at Houston, he followed it up with a combined seven Fantasy points in his next five games. That the Eagles went back to McCoy for their third play inside the 5 after Polk had already converted on the first two is also a positive sign.

Seems like McCoy's Week 15 performance was just "one of those things," which isn't what his Fantasy owners want to hear, especially if it got them eliminated from the playoffs. But that's kind of the way McCoy's season has gone. If you expected an assured 100 yards every week, you haven't been paying attention.


Eagles notch three rushing TDs, none for McCoy in Week 15


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy racked up a team-high 64 yards on 16 carries but didn't score any of the Eagles' three rushing touchdowns in his team's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

McCoy, who also added just one reception for one yard, had 16 of his team's 21 carries, but saw Chris Polk score on both of his touches while gaining six yards and Darren Sproles pick up five yards and a touchdown on just three carries. Sproles also added 11 yards on two receptions.

McCoy enjoyed big performances in Weeks 12 and 13 but has managed just 115 yards and no touchdowns on 34 touches over the last two weeks. He'll look for a bigger game when he faces the Redskins in Week 16.
