According to Jenny Vrentas of MMQB, the Eagles were looking to secure draft picks in return for RB LeSean McCoy.

However, the Bills were without their first-round pick after they traded up to get WR Sammy Watkins last year.

Even so, Bills GM Doug Whaley reportedly told the Eagles: “Just do me a favor and look at our roster.”

Philadelphia later called the Bills back and told them they would trade McCoy straight up for LB Kiko Alonso.


Alabama S Landon Collins said that it would be a dream to play for the Redskins.

“I grew up a Redskins fan,” Collins said, via the NFL Network. “I was a big Sean Taylor and Clinton Portis fan. Those were my two favorite players, so I grew up seeing them play for the Redskins, so that would be my dream, to play there.”

  • John Keim reports that the Redskins will host Florida LB Dante Fowler for a visit on Wednesday.
