Rex Ryan says he won't 'put a muzzle' on LeSean McCoy

It seems that despite the fact that LeSean McCoy was traded to the Buffalo Bills and his mouth is now in New York, his head is clearly still in Philadelphia.

McCoy was the subject of a trade between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Bills and was a legitimate reason for Bills fans to get excited.

Buffalo finally had a top class runningback and were now just short of a top class quarterback to revolutionise their offense.

However since arriving in Buffalo, McCoy has appeared to be more focussed on the end of his time in Philadelphia.

McCoy has made several remarks aimed at his former head coach Chip Kelly and his latest ones have raised a few eyebrows.

McCoy recently claimed that Kelly had racial motivations for getting rid of players as he pointed out that the good black payers were the first to go.

This has led to calls for new Bills head coach Rex Ryan to begin to limit what McCoy says in the media, but the new coach has done the exact opposite.

"I'd rather just be ourselves... 'I think the players are more comfortable doing that. I know I'm more comfortable doing that. And I think that's the way it is. I think you'll get a real feel for who we are.'' - Ryan on 'muzzling' McCoy

Taking a stand for his player's right to free speech, Ryan claimed that he will now 'muzzle' his new runningback.

McCoy may be enjoying the freedom he is being granted in Buffalo but at some point, the Bills will have to think of the wider consequences.

Either way, if the Bills runningback doesn't stop targeting the Eagles, it will only make Buffalo's visit to Philadelphia in week 14 of next season all the more interesting.

Ready for a battle?

The Buffalo Bills will be a part of the newly rejuvenated AFC East division next season with the Super Bowl Champions the New England Patriots, the New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins quite noticeably signed Ndamukong Suh in free agency and made him the highest paid defensive player in the league.

The Jets have made some incredible acquisitions in the off-season including re-uniting cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie.

The Patriots could be seen as the team who have suffered most having lost many key players and possibly about to lose quarterback Tom Brady following the revelations of the Wells Report.

Whilst the Bills have done well and could still have a trick up their sleeve for the quarterback position, they will face a touch challenge next season.
