LeSean McCoy slams the Philadelphia Eagles newest signings

Published 1 Comments

The Philadelphia Eagles have had probably the most intense off-season and free agency period of any NFL team in the last decade.

The Eagles brought in both DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews to replace LeSean McCoy, whom Chip Kelly decided to trade to the Buffalo Bills in return for linebacker Kiko Alonso.

Well that man McCoy has finally spoken out after the trade to Buffao, and he hasn't exactly been kind to the new signings that have come in at Philadelphia.

Panic Moves

"I saw that they originally were trying to get Frank Gore, and he backed out," McCoy said according to "So then when they got DeMarco and they got Ryan Mathews, I thought it was like a panic move."

The Eagles will be paying a lot of money to their running back corps in 2015, much more than they would have been with just McCoy, and is the 2nd highest amount of any NFL side. McCoy went on to add that he thought the Eagles head coach Kelly was still learning how to be an NFL coach.

"I didn't understand it. I should say that," McCoy said. "And Chip I think is a really good coach. I think this is something different for him kind of managing both, from being a coach to now kind of managing the team as far as the players that they get and they pay."

It does seem that Kelly made the signings of Murray and Mathews in a bit of a rush and maybe to get Eagles fans back on his side after they started to revolt against the upheaval Kelly was bringing about. 

Time will tell if the moves end up working out for Philly.
