Veteran running back LeSean McCoy stated on multiple occasions that he intends to play for several more years. And in order to maximize his remaining time in NFL, McCoy is being picky with choosing his next team.
McCoy, who won Super Bowl with Kansas City Chiefs last season, recently had a chat with NBC Sports Philly in which revealed that he already refused several contract offers. According to the 31-year-old, he is willing to wait a bit longer if that means he will end up “making the right decision.”
“Now, like I’ve turned some teams down depending on the styles, who they have there, are we winning? I went to the Super Bowl [with] Patrick Mahomes, now I can’t just go to any team,” said McCoy. “I’m just waiting, I’ve been talking to teams and I’ll make the right decision.”
Despite winning a Super Bowl ring, LeSean McCoy had a disappointing individual season in 2019. He ended up having 465 rushing yards and four touchdowns in the regular season while playing just one game in the playoffs. McCoy is now two years removed from his last 1,000+ yards season.
Reportedly, there are several teams interested in McCoy including Philadelphia Eagles, where he spent the first six seasons of his career. Eagles need help in the backfield, while McCoy himself recently said that he would like to retire in Philly so reunion might be best option for both sides.
