Eagles Reportedly Call Bills About Possible LeSean McCoy Reunion

Grant SmithOct 10, 2018

As if things couldn't get worse for the 2-3 Eagles, running back Jay Ajayi was placed on injured reserve Monday with a knee injury that ESPN's Adam Schefter reported is a torn ACL.

As a result, they've apparently asked the Buffalo Bills about the availability of former Eagles star LeSean McCoy.

McCoy spent his first six seasons with the Eagles before he was traded by Chip Kelly.

McCoy has two seasons remaining on his deal. With such glaring issues at the running back position, doesn't trading for Bell make ideal sense?

It helped that the Eagles had already been linked to Bell, in large part because of a late-September report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Ajayi totaled 873 rushing yards last season, playing seven games for both the Eagles and Dolphins. Philly just lost RB Jay Ajayi for the season due to a torn ACL.

Ajayi told reporters on Monday that he wished the Eagles rushed the ball more during Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

It's hardly out of the question that the Eagles stand pat with what they have, particularly as they would still have to clear several millions of dollars in salary-cap space to take on Bell's contract. So if he's not the primary trade target for the Eagles now, he's a solid fallback option if Bell is genuinely available but is deemed to be more risky overall.
