LeSean McCoy

In 2019, one of those tough decisions was moving on from running back LeSean McCoy. The featured running back joined the team in 2015 when the Bills traded Kiko Alonso to the Eagles.

Over the next four seasons, McCoy was essentially the team’s offense and best playmaker. He would average over 200 carries each season and made the Pro Bowl three times.

However, in 2019 the Bills had drafted Devin Singletary in the third round and towards the end of training camp appeared confident the rookie could have an expanded role and share the work with Frank Gore.

Since leaving Buffalo, he hasn’t had much success on the field with stops in Kansas City and Tampa Bay but does now have two Super Bowl rings, one with the Chiefs in 2019 and then this past year with the Bucs.

It remains to be seen if McCoy will continue his career this coming season as he has hinted at the possibility of retirement recently. However, he could have a market for a team looking for a veteran at the position for this coming season if he decides to return.
