Rapoport: Bills unlikely to trade Lesean McCoy
14 October 2018 Opinion
According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport the Buffalo Bills are “unlikely” to trade Lesean McCoy.
From @gmfb Weekend: At this point, it feels unlikely that the #Bills trade RB LeSean McCoy, sources say. The price tag would be high, and they want him on the team this year and for 2019. pic.twitter.com/yt7v3L5ajp

From where the Bills stand, that could be the idea where there at, but to me that means the Bills are saying be prepared to pay up for his services. The Bills are setting the parameters for the Eagles who seem desperate to reunite with the Former Eagles running back. It was already reported that Howie Roseman tried to trade for Lesean McCoy last season.
Of course, Howie Roseman is doing his due diligence and putting out feelers across the league, but I’m not exactly sure he’s willing to drop a 2nd round pick and more for the return of McCoy.
At the moment, Eagles are going into battle with running backs Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, with Darren Sproles(hamstring) on the mend. If the Eagles don’t get a deal they like, perhaps they add a lower tier back to the mix and move forward with what they have.
The Eagles have until October 30th at 4 PM to make a trade, which is sixteen days away. Make sure you get your popcorn ready Eagles fans!
