Bills unhappy with McCoy's bizarre party invitations

Football News

The Buffalo Bills made headlines earlier in the off-season after they traded for one of the biggest names at runningback in the league, LeSean McCoy.

McCoy moved from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Bills in a trade which saw linebacker Kiko Alonso go the other way.

You have to wonder if there are some Bills staff who regret that trade now though as McCoy has become of the most outspoken players of this off-season.

Most of the headlines from the runningback have been revolving rants that he has made aimed at his former head coach Chip Kelly.

However his latest move has certainly caused a stir and now the Bills have even had to get involved to stop it.

With training camps opening this week around the league, McCoy was clearly looking for a final chance to party before he gets down to work.

On Thursday afternoon, McCoy made an Instagram post - which has now been deleted, which invited women aged 21+ to a "private event celebration".

Social media picked up on the unique entry requirements and after responding, women received another email explaining that they would have to sign a confidentiality agreement, provide a picture and link to a social media account and that they would be given party attire.

Not the standard way to invite people to a party and it has now landed McCoy in some hot water after he made use of the Bills logo on the invites.

The post was deleted about the same time that the Bills released this statement to NFL media:

"We have reached out to LeSean and informed him that players are not permitted to use team marks for personal use without prior permission from the team." - Bills statement on McCoy's invites

A move that has been constantly referred to as sleazy by fans on the internet, maybe McCoy should conform to more standard forms of party invites next time.

Enough to win the division?

The entire AFC East has undergone a massive transformation this off-season with the Bills and the New York Jets making the most improvements.

The Miami Dolphins have added Ndamukong Suh to their roster while the New England Patriots have lost some of their biggest names on both sides of the ball.

The whole division should be much more open next season and who knows which team will emerge out on top when week 17 is over.
