LeSean McCoy wants to mentor Miles Sanders with Eagles
LeSean McCoy is still without a team, but he knows exactly who he’d like to play for and what role he’d like to play for them.
McCoy said he would like to return to the Philadelphia Eagles in order to mentor young standout Miles Sanders.
“I think they have an emerging superstar coming up with a lot of talent,” McCoy said on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football,” via Jaylon Thompson of 247 Sports. “I could see myself helping him out, showing him the ropes. I think, when I was there when I was young, I had Westbrook. He was kind of banged up and he left the next year. I never really had older guys showing me the ropes.”
McCoy turns 32 in July. He had 465 yards rushing for the Kansas City Chiefs last year, and is clearly more of a mentor figure than a lead back at this point. The Chiefs didn’t have much use for him toward the end of his time there. Maybe the Eagles would have more use for him, but there’s no clear indication that they’re interested.
