Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy started his career with the Eagles and, according to the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta, the Eagles attempted to reacquire McCoy from the Bills in a package centered around Jordan Matthews. This would have been interesting to say the least. The Eagles and Bills were able to agree to a deal for Matthews, with the Bills taking the oft-injured wideout in exchange for CB Ronald Darby. In the effort to get McCoy back in Philly, EVP Howie Roseman was attempting to "reverse" ex-coach Chip Kelly's mistakes after Kelly was the one who traded McCoy. The Eagles instead later signed LeGarrette Blount and traded for Jay Ajayi. McCoy, 29, has two years left on his deal.
