AFC Notes: Bills, Jets, Patriots

Bills

On Tuesday, Stephanie Maisonet, the mother of LeSean McCoy‘s six-year-old son, filed an affidavit in court supporting an active lawsuit against McCoy by his ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon. Maisonet’s lawsuit accuses McCoy of abusing their son and being at fault for a July 10 home invasion in which Cordon was injured.

Bills HC Sean McDermott said Wednesday said the team’s stance has not changed regarding McCoy’s ongoing legal situation.

“Nothing has changed as far as we’re concerned,” McDermott said, via ESPN.com. “We’ve gotten the information that we need at this point. There’s no crystal ball. Nobody has a crystal ball. We’re just going to take it one day at a time right now.

“He’s done everything that I’ve asked him to do. Other than that, nothing’s really changed in terms of where we were in training camp. I’ve been pleased with the way he’s handled himself from the start of training camp all the way through, and I look forward to having him on the field this week.”

  • Veteran DT Tom Johnson tells Chris Tomasson that he was “close to going to the Bills” before deciding that the Vikings were “a better fit.”

Ian O’Connor’s new book “Belichick: The Making of the Greatest Football Coach of All Time” features a quote from a source who mentioned that Tom Brady wanted a “divorce” from HC Bill Belichick.

“If you’re married 18 years to a grouchy person who gets under your skin and never compliments you, after a while you want to divorce him,” a source close to the Brady and O’Connor. “Tom knows Bill is the best coach in the league, but he’s had enough of him. If Tom could, I think he would divorce him.”

“But in the end, even if he wanted to, Brady could not walk away from the game, and he could not ask for a trade,” O’Connor writes. “The moment Belichick moved [Jimmy] Garoppolo to San Francisco, and banked on Brady’s oft-stated desire to play at least into his mid-forties, was the moment Brady was virtually locked into suiting up next season and beyond. Had he retired or requested a trade, he would have risked turning an adoring New England public into an angry mob.
