Former Bishop McDevitt star LeSean McCoy is no longer a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. According to multiple reports, a deal is in place to send the Eagles all-time leading rusher to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso. It was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It only took “Shady” six years to set a new franchise record for rushing yards with 6,792. He was drafted in the second round of the 2009 NFL draft out of Pittsburgh. McCoy rushed for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns in the 2014 season.
Kiko Alonso played for Chip Kelly at Oregon. During his 2013 rookie season, he was third in the NFL with 159 tackles. He missed the entire 2014-15 season with a torn knee ligament.
The deal will not be official until next week.
The Eagles signed LB Brad Jones on Monday and released CB Cary Williams on Tuesday.
