MMQB: 2 Teams That Could Trade For LeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy speaks to reporters in Buffalo.

With the NFL trade deadline only a few days away, many analysts are starting to take a look at some of the worst teams that can offload assets to contenders. Among the most popular players being speculated for a move is Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy.

MMQB writer Conor Orr gave his thoughts on five different players who could be trade targets before the Tuesday deadline. But it was his McCoy theory that really stood out.

Orr speculated that an ideal trading partner for the Bills would be either the Philadelphia Eagles or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Both teams are struggling with their rushing attacks, with the Eagles looking to protect their playoff chances and the Buccaneers brass looking to protect their jobs.

Interestingly, NFL analyst and former RB Maurice Jones-Drew also had the Eagles and Buccaneers on his list of potential trading partners.

McCoy played for the Eagles from 2009 to 2014 before being traded to the Bills in 2015. In 2011, McCoy led the NFL in rushing TDs and total TDs. Two years later, he would claim the rushing title with 1,607 yards while leading the league with 314 carries.

The star RB has hardly slowed since moving to Buffalo. Despite not reaching the same highs in rushing yards, McCoy has earned Pro Bowl nods in each of his three seasons with the team.

McCoy has made six Pro Bowl selections in his career, and has been named First-Team All-Pro twice.
