Chiefs Signing RB LeSean McCoy To One-Year, $4M Deal


Adam Schefter reports that the Chiefs are signing veteran RB LeSean McCoy to a one-year, $4 million contract on Saturday that includes $3 million guaranteed.

  • According to Terez A. Paylor, the Chargers offered McCoy a similar deal, but he opted to sign with the Chiefs due to his history with HC Andy Reid and the front office.

A report from earlier mentioned that the Chiefs, Chargers, Patriots and Eagles were showing the most interest in McCoy since he was released by the Bills earlier in the day.

McCoy will round out a running back group that consists of Damien Williams, Darwin Thompson, Darrel Williams and Tremon Smith.

McCoy, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2009. After six years in Philadelphia, McCoy was traded to the Bills, who later signed him to a five-year, $40 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed.

McCoy was set to make base salaries of $6 million and $6.075 million over the next two years of the agreement when the Bills released him on Saturday. 

In 2018, McCoy has appeared in 12 games for the Bills and rushed for 479 yards on 145 carries (3.3 YPC) to go along with 29 receptions for 210 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
