Lead Story: LeSean McCoy Just Needs to Stay Out of Philly
One would think that the relationship between LeSean McCoy and Philadelphia couldn’t get any worse. After last season’s surprising trade to Buffalo, subsequent claims of racism and then the obviously strained ties between player and city when the Bills came to town, you would almost believe that McCoy would never want to step in that town again. Well, that would be wrong. Step he did, and the results were even more negative results.
I don’t normally go in-depth on stories like this before the case goes to court, but this one appears to be pretty open and shut.
Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons have cut safety William Moore and linebacker Justin Durant. Moore’s camp has reported that several teams have already reached out to him.
- Chiefs’ Take: Moore is definitely a player the Chiefs might have their eye on for a depth safety role. Don’t be surprised if they are one of the teams that has reached out to him.
Buffalo Bills: Running back LeSean McCoy was arrested this past week for an incident that resulted in the physical assault of several Philadelphia police officers. McCoy, and three other unnamed players, apparently got into an argument in a club with another group of patrons over a champagne bottle. This escalated into a fight and the police were called, but that apparently did not stop McCoy.
Carolina Panthers: The Panthers signed cornerback Ras-I Dowling to a Futures Contract. The team has allowed the contracts of wide receiver Jericho Cotchery and safety Roman Harper to expire without picking up their 2016 option, making both players free agents.
Cincinnati Bengals: Linebacker Vontaze Burfict is meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in hopes of scaling back his three game suspension. Burfict was suspended for a deliberate and illegal hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, that concussed the start receiver and kept him out of the following playoff game.
