Eagles Still Interested In Re-Signing LeSean McCoy, But Have Yet To Make Him An Offer


Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the Eagles are still interested in re-signing free agent RB LeSean McCoy, but have yet to make him an offer at this point in time.

According to McLane, the Eagles offered contracts to Carlos Hyde, who signed with the Seahawks last week, and Devonta Freeman. However, Freeman is reportedly weighing other offers including from the Buccaneers.

Philadelphia is high on second-year RB Miles Sanders and Boston Scott should have a role in their offense, but they could still use some more depth to the position. 

While McCoy also received some interest from the Raiders, the veteran has been vocal about his willingness to return to Philadelphia.

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 during the preseason. The Chiefs later signed him to a one-year deal. 

McCoy is an unrestricted free agent this offseason. 

In 2019, McCoy appeared in 13 games for the Cheifs and rushed for 465 yards on 101 carries (4.6 YPC) to go along with 28 receptions for 181 yards receiving and five touchdowns.
