NFL Notes: LeSean McCoy, Eagles, Redskins

LeSean McCoy

  • Mike Garafolo does not believe that the Eagles will trade for Bills RB LeSean McCoy, adding that Eagles GM Howie Roseman‘s inquiry to Buffalo was “one of many” he made around the league.
  • Garafolo says the Bills would want a lot in return for McCoy and cites one report that Buffalo was seeking a second- and third-round pick.
  • According to Garafolo, the Eagles actually checked in on McCoy last year before ultimately trading for Jay Ajayi.
  • Garafolo adds that he wouldn’t be shocked if the Eagles made a trade in the coming weeks.

Redskins

According to Kevin Sheehan, Redskins CB Josh Norman was benched for the second half of Week 5’s game because he did not remove his headphones when HC Jay Gruden was addressing the team.

The reason Josh Norman was benched for the start of the second half against the Saints had very little to do with him getting lost in coverage,” Sheehan said, via Pro Football Talk. “At halftime, according to my source, he put his headphones on while the coaches were addressing the team. Jay Gruden told him to take them off. He either didn’t hear Jay or he ignored him, but with that, I was told, the headphones were removed. By whom? My source says that he believes it was Gruden who removed the headphones from Norman’s head. But regardless, Gruden benched him to start the third quarter, and that was the reason why. My source also tells me that there is not a lot of good vibes when it comes to Norman among several of the coaches right now. Not much they can do about it.
