REPORT: Eagles Have Interest in a LeSean McCoy Reunion

If you stored your LeSean McCoy jersey in the back of your closet, you might need to dust it off in the near future. Today the Buffalo Bills surprisingly released McCoy after four years with the team. He was set to count $8.9 Million against the cap this season, which mean his release was mostly done for cap purposes.

So now that McCoy is free to sign with any team, there have already been a few teams that have shown interest. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, one of those teams is the Eagles.

McCoy spent his first six seasons in the league with the Eagles, eventually becoming the team's franchise leader in rushing yards. There seems to be a slim chance that a reunion could be in the works.

The Eagles currently have four running backs on their roster: Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement. We don't know if the Eagles would want to add McCoy to the already crowded backfield, or if they would move a player like Jordan Howard or Corey Clement via trade to help make room for McCoy.

This is all just speculation though. McCoy might want to go somewhere he can be used more often and earn more money. If he wants to reunite in Philadelphia on a relatively cheap deal, then it seems there is a possibility that Howie Roseman could make it happen.
