Bills RB LeSean McCoy said discipline has been an issue for the team after WR Sammy Watkinsrecent comments that Buffalo requires a head coach that will be “tough on them.”

He is right, discipline has been an issue,” McCoy said, via Pro Football Talk. “I just think players need to take accountability for their own actions.”

Although, McCoy did not criticize former HC Rex Ryan, he said interim HC Anthony Lynn is a capable replacement.

I like Rex,” McCoy said. “The good thing about coach Lynn is they’re putting the team in the hands of a responsible, accountable coach.”


  • Greg Auman would not be surprised to see the Buccaneers sign WR Mike Evans to a long-term extension this offseason, which would likely lead to him becoming one of the league’s highest-paid receivers.


Panthers HC Ron Rivera said he has no plans to make any changes to his coaching staff this offseason.

Remember, it’s the same group that was 15-1, same group that led the league in scoring,” Rivera said, via Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review. “And in the last five years, we’ve had a top-10 defense. So as I look it and break things down, yeah, there’s some things that we have to work on and change. You guys heard me talk about evolving. We have to.”
