LeSean McCoy says he doesn't regret derogatory Chip Kelly comments

Football News

LeSean McCoy has had to endure a difficult offseason. He was once a Philadelphia Eagles star, but in March he was traded to the Buffalo Bills in a move that shocked the NFL.

Eagles' head coach Chip Kelly was the man responsible for trading McCoy, with the head coach utilising his new found powers to orchestrate a barrage of bizarre moves in the last couple of months.

Signing former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was arguably the most bizarre move that Kelly has made to date, but it's the trade of McCoy that won't go away.

Derogatory comments 

The main reason the aftermath of McCoy's trade continues to be talked about is because of the comments that the star running back made to the media last month, in which he insinuated Kelly had made a conscious decision to trade away "all of the good black players" in Philly. 

Kelly flatly denied the remarks, but in an interview on Wednesday, McCoy stood by his farfetched and truly offensive comments.

McCoy was asked about his comments on Wednesday by reporters, with the tailback explaining “I have nothing more to say about it. I’m done talking about it.”

However, McCoy was not done and was eventually manipulated into backing his previous comments up.

“I never regret nothing I say," added McCoy, according to ProFootballTalk. "I don’t have to explain myself to nobody. I said what I said about what I felt at the time and I’m done with that.”

Outrageous remarks 

McCoy will struggle to escape the comments that he made because of the fact that his new team will face off against his old employers on Dec 13. There is no doubt that he will have to answer plenty more questions about his outrageous remarks.

For now though, McCoy just sounds like a disgruntled former employee.
