At the beginning of the 2019 season, McCoy was cut after a four-year stint with the Buffalo Bills. However, McCoy quickly found a team and signed with Kansas City Chiefs to a one-year, $4 million contract. McCoy played phenomenal in the regular season, racking up nearly 650 yards rushing and receiving. But as the season progressed, he was less involved in the Chiefs’ offense. Additionally, he was inactive during the team’s Super Bowl LIV win in February.
Nevertheless, due to his age, it’s clear that McCoy won’t be the focal point of an offense anymore. The Eagles currently have five running backs on their depth chart: Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Corey Clement, Elijah Holyfield, and Adrian Killins. Signing a veteran running back like McCoy could also be helpful for the Eagles, who are seeking to add to their relatively young stable of running backs.
In a recent interview with ESPN, McCoy stated that he wants to do what Frank Gore is doing and become a mentor to a talented young running back.
Also, McCoy stated that he would like to return to Philly.
“This last go-around, man, for the last time, just to put my stamp on my career, and I want to leave out the way I came in,” McCoy said, according to NFL.com. On another note, since I left, you haven’t seen the 25 active in green, so you never know,” McCoy said with a bit of a smirk on his face. “I’ma keep my options open, though. I could see myself there in Philly. Like I said, that’s home, so you never know.”
Nevertheless, if the Eagles are looking to add a veteran running back to their depth chart, McCoy is the player.
