Rumor: Some around the NFL think Bills could trade or cut LeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy did not exactly have a strong season in 2018, so as a result, he could be in danger of being on the move.

According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the Bills might trade or cut McCoy this summer due to their surplus of running backs. Buffalo signed veterans Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon this offseason and also drafted Devin Singletary, so there may not end up being any room for McCoy.

It should be noted that Bills general manager Brandon Beane recently gave McCoy a vote of confidence, but things can change very quickly around the NFL, so it would certainly not be shocking if Buffalo moved on from McCoy before the start of the regular season.

McCoy is coming off of a 2018 campaign in which he played 14 games and rushed for just 514 yards and three touchdown while averaging a meager 3.2 yards per carry, easily the worst season of his NFL career.

The 31-year-old originally joined the Bills in 2015 after coming over in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles and made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons in Buffalo, with his best year as a Bill coming in 2016 when he racked up 1,267 yards and 13 scores while registering 5.4 yards per attempt.

However, since then, McCoy has been on a pretty sharp decline, as his yards-per-carry average dipped to four yards per carry in 2017 before falling off the map this past year.

McCoy entered the league as a second-round pick of the Eagles in 2009 and made three Pro Bowls and earned a pair of First-Team All-Pro selections during his time in Philadelphia.
