LeSean McCoy to sign with Chiefs after being cut by Bills
Shady McCoy already has a new team.
LeSean McCoy will be joining the Kansas City Chiefs on a 1-year deal with $3 million guaranteed. The deal can be worth up to $4 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The move comes the same day McCoy was cut by the Buffalo Bills, who opted to go with Frank Gore and Devin Singletary instead.
Joining Kansas City will reunite McCoy with Andy Reid. Reid’s Eagles drafted McCoy out of Pitt in 2009. McCoy played six seasons for Philadelphia — four under Reid and then two under Chip Kelly before Kelly traded away the back.
McCoy is now 31 and averaged just 3.2 yards per carry last season, but he is a good pass-catching back, which is essential for Reid’s offense. The Eagles, Chargers and Patriots were other teams McCoy was said to have been considering.
