Lesean McCoy? How concerned are we?

Recommended Posts

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports LeSean McCoy is not expected to be traded ahead of Tuesday's deadline.

Darlington reports "several teams reached out," but the Bills did not really pursue the matter. The Bills seem to be in the same sort of situation the Browns were with Joe Thomas in 2017. Trading McCoy makes sense on paper but how much worse can they make the team as they try to develop a rookie quarterback? McCoy was also not going to fetch more than a late-round pick. It's not surprising he's staying in Buffalo.

Bills GM Brandon Beane expects LeSean McCoy to "definitely" be in the team's plans for next season.

"LeSean is still a very good player in this league," Beane told the Buffalo News. "We like what he brings, to the point we'll have him back in 2019." McCoy (3.4 YPC) has looked washed behind a bad offensive line this year, setting career lows through seven weeks. The Bills fielded McCoy offers at the deadline but ultimately didn't trade him. McCoy is going to be a walk year 31-year-old back owed $9 million in 2019 with declined production and questionable off-field baggage. Buffalo can save $6.4 million from moving on from McCoy this offseason.

Just don't understand why they didn't trade him. Maybe they didn't want to send a signal to their fans that they were giving up? But seems like they should've gotten something for him.

Locker room presence for the rookie. They have already made it clear they want him for next year also.

Depends.  They need O Linemen.  They could conceivably improve enough to make the playoffs.

Man I have a hard time seeing how. I mean Allen’s gonna go through some growing pains and they’re not doing him any favors with possible the worst receiving core in the league and McCoys prob still good although who can really tell since he gets so few opportunities to do anything.

LeSean McCoy (questionable, hamstring) will work out prior to Sunday's Week 15 game against the Lions.

McCoy is testing out his injured hamstring in preparation for Sunday's home game against Detroit, though according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he "does not have a great chance" of suiting up. With Chris Ivory (shoulder) also a long shot to play, Marcus Murphy could wind up as the Bills' primary back in Week 15. Murphy is no one's idea of a sure thing, but at minimum price on FanDuel, you could do a lot worse.

Speaking at Monday's season-ending presser, Bills GM Brandon Beane said LeSean McCoy would be back with the team for the final year of his contract in 2019.

"LeSean will come back in 2019 and we’ll go from there," Beane said matter of factly. Now on the wrong side of 30, McCoy is due $6.175 million in 2019. Cutting him would free up $6.425 million in cap space while leaving behind a modest $2.625 million in dead money. Good savings, but the Bills are already flush in cap space. Supporting cast issues take a huge part of the blame, but McCoy has seen steep drops in his YPC each of the past two years, bottoming out at 3.2 in 2018.
