Owner: DeMarco Murray better fit than LeSean McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(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 | CBSSports.com
(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.


Redskins RB Morris replacing Eagles RB McCoy in Pro Bowl


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) Redskins running back Alfred Morris was named Monday as Eagles running back LeSean McCoy's replacement in the Pro Bowl. McCoy will not play in the game due to injury.

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.


Report: Eagles' LeSean McCoy will miss Pro Bowl with minor injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has been excused from playing in the Pro Bowl because of an injury, a source told The Philadelphia Inquirer. A source told The Philadelphia Daily News that the injury is no cause for concern.

McCoy rushed for more than 1,000 yards for the fourth time in five seasons in 2014. He averaged 4.2 yards per carry.


Eagles coach Chip Kelly: I want LeSean McCoy back next season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said on WIP-FM Radio in Philadelphia on Monday morning he wants running back LeSean McCoy back next season.

Both of McCoy's best statistical seasons have come under Kelly. He rushed for 1,319 yards in 2014, the second-highest total of his career. McCoy is the only running back in Eagles history with three seasons of at least 1,300 rushing yards. He is under contract through 2017 and is set to make $9.75 million next season.

"The season just ended, and ... I'm an Eagle. I love it here," McCoy said following Sunday's win over the Giants, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. "My six years here have been excellent. I've been very, very, very productive here. I have a great relationship with my coaches, the owner.

"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."


LeSean McCoy says he's 'fine,' wanted to go back in game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who hurt his left knee late in the win over the Giants, told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he's "fine" and wanted to go back in the game. McCoy rushed 17 times for 99 yards, just missing his fifth 100-yard game of the year.

Eagles RB LeSean McCoy hurts knee late against Giants


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy hurt his left knee on a 4-yard carry with under five minutes left against the Giants. After being tended to on the turf, McCoy walked off gingerly.

The team has not provided an update on the injury's severity.

McCoy rushed 17 times for 99 yards and added a 15-yard catch. He finishes the season with 1,319 rushing yards, the second-highest total of his career. McCoy is the only running back in Eagles history with three seasons of at least 1,300 rushing yards.

McCoy is under contract through 2017 and is set to make $9.75 million next season.


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.


Eagles' LeSean McCoy limited Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was limited Week 14 against the Seahawks.

McCoy carried the ball 17 times, gaining just 50 yards. He averaged just 2.9 yards per carry. Things got worse right after the half. On the team's first play of the third quarter, McCoy lost a fumble. Seattle scored just two plays later. McCoy only received five carries the rest of the contest. Surprisingly, McCoy was not targeted in the passing game.

He'll look for more Week 15 against the Cowboys. 


Eagles' LeSean McCoy misses Friday practice


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Eagles reported running back LeSean McCoy did not participate in practice Friday.

The Eagles listed McCoy’s absence as non-injury related. He was able to practice Wednesday and Thursday.


LeSean McCoy busts out on Thanksgiving


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Eagles RB LeSean McCoy busted out for a season-high 159 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Thursday's win at Dallas. McCoy sprinted 35 yards around right end on his second rush and averaged 6.4 yards per carry on the day.

Midway through the third quarter, McCoy used a vicious stiff-arm to scoot 38 yards for a touchdown, his third score in the past four games and fourth this season. McCoy has run for 289 yards over the past two weeks. He was not targeted in the passing game.

McCoy coughed up his second fumble of the season, but it didn't matter in this blowout. He plays the Seahawks in Week 14.


LeSean McCoy looks as good as ever


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) After he averaged just 3.8 yards per carry Week 11 at Green Bay, questions about whether or not Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has lost a step resurfaced leading up to Week 12. He did his best to invalidate them against the Titans, though, rushing for 130 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.

His defining play was a 53-yard run early in the fourth quarter in which he juked a defender and turned on the jets, breaking away from the secondary before getting run down deep in Titans territory. It was the kind of athletic move you'd expect from a 26-year-old coming off a rushing title but one we haven't seen much from McCoy this season.

Of course, whether or not McCoy has lost a step is kind of a moot point for his Fantasy owners. The window to trade him has most likely passed them by, and while he hasn't lived up to his average draft position, mostly because he hasn't been as involved in the passing game as in years past, he's been good enough to start every week, rushing for 80 or more yards in six of the Eagles' last seven games.

Perhaps the Titans defense, which entered the game ranked 31st against the run, contributed to this performance, but even if that's the case, you wouldn't consider sitting McCoy for Week 13 at Dallas.


Eagles RB LeSean McCoy runs wild in win over Titans


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy turned in a vintage performance, as he ran wild and led his team to a comfortable 43-24 victory over the Titans in Week 12.

McCoy registered his third 100-yard performance of the season and also added a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He carried the ball 21 times for 130 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He was held to only one grab for 1 yard.

McCoy has 859 yards and three touchdowns on the ground this season. He'll look to keep rolling Thanksgiving Day against the Cowboys.


Eagles RB McCoy in 2014 struggles: 'I am the same player'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy has reacted angrily to suggestions that he has regressed as a player this season.

His numbers have certainly regressed. He led the NFL in rushing a year ago with 1,607 yards and 5.1 YPC. He is currently sixth in the league with 729 yards and is averaging a career-low 3.7 yards per attempt. McCoy only has two touchdowns in 2014. But injuries to the offensive line have certainly factored in.

"I'm not going to address, 'Am I the same player?' I won't address that," he told the Philadelphia Daily News. "For what? What are we talking about, am I the same player. That's for y'all to figure out. You crazy? Am I the same player? I am the same player."


Chip Kelly sticks up for LeSean McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy averaged under 4 yards per carry Sunday for the sixth time this season, notes Philly.com. Still, coach Chip Kelly stuck up for McCoy on Monday.

"LeSean's our guy," Kelly told the website. "Right now, I think LeSean's done a good job."

McCoy is averaging 3.7 yards per carry this season after averaging 5.1 last year.

"A lot of runs he made, when you really watch them, I thought he did a good job of being patient, getting up inside, following blocks and doing things on the outside," Kelly said of McCoy's performance against Green Bay. "I don't think LeSean played poorly."

Kelly said he is not considering giving any of McCoy's carries to backup Darren Sproles, according to the website.


LeSean McCoy can't gain traction Week 11


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy struggled with his footing in the Week 11 loss at Green Bay, slipping several times while trying to cut back. He still finished with 88 yards on 23 carries (3.8 ypc) and added an 18-yard reception.

McCoy has made exactly one catch in each of the past three games and has only two touchdowns all season. He was fortunate not to get charged with a fumble when he failed to secure a third-quarter handoff from Mark Sanchez. McCoy plays the Titans in Week 12.
