LeSean McCoy Won’t Be Back With Chiefs In 2020, Eagles & Chargers Possible Landing Spots

     

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reported Wednesday on “NFL NOW” that RB LeSean McCoy plans to resume his NFL career, but he won’t be back with the Chiefs in 2020. 

“Certainly in LeSean McCoy’s mind, he thinks he’s got some good football left,” Garafolo said. “It will not be in Kansas City for him in 2020. This is a little bit of a different scenario. He’s been in such high demand throughout his career, this is one where he’s going to have to wind up being the right fit.

According to Garafolo, two teams to keep an eye on for potential landing spots for McCoy are the Eagles and Chargers. 

“I would not discount the possibility of him returning to the Eagles,” Garafolo said. “I also would not discount the possibility that he meets up with Anthony Lynn out with the Chargers, who are going to have some changes in the backfield. So, some interesting possibilities for LeSean McCoy as he heads into free agency.

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.
