The Eagles tried to reacquire running back LeSean McCoy from the Bills in an effort to erase what Philadelphia General Manager Howie Roseman considered a mistake made by former coach Chip Kelly, according to a report from the New York Daily News.
In a feature centered around how Roseman rebuilt the Eagles into a Super Bowl team, Manesh Mehta cites sources who said the E…
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Buffalo Bills are finally headed back to the playoffs, but they might be going there without their best offensive player.
Running back LeSean McCoy left Sunday’s 22-16 victory over the Dolphins in the third quarter with a right ankle injury. McCoy was hurt at the end of a 3-yard carry as he was tackled by Dolphins linebacker Chase Allen.
Tyrod Taylor vs. Jay Cutler
This is likely Taylor's last regular-season game with the Bills, and it's probably the last game of Cutler's NFL career. Cutler came out of retirement in August to sign a one-year, $10 million deal with the Dolphins after Ryan Tannehill blew out his knee. Cutler is 74-78 in his career as a starter with 227 TDs, 160 …
Who the hell is Kiko Alonso?
That's what LeSean McCoy asked agent Drew Rosenhaus in March 2015. The Philadelphia Eagles had traded McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for Alonso, an injured linebacker.
Nearly three seasons and many yards later, McCoy smirks at the mention of Alonso, the personification of a chip on the star running back's shoulder.
Some team dared to belie…
Strange, this Buffalo Bills season.
A month before the season began, after the Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby trades, general manager Brandon Beane found himself answering questions about throwing in the towel on 2017.
Buffalo fans still sporting argument scars over the 2014-15 Sabres broke out their old debate points for this year's Bills.
What we've learned the …
Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane, the Buffalo Bills' rookie head coach and GM, each was asked if the 2017 roster got better after Friday's trades.
They slipped the questions as Floyd Mayweather would an off-balance roundhouse.
But throughout their news conferences at One Bills Drive, McDermott and Beane acknowledged they hurt their chances of winning this year.
Bills running back LeSean McCoy took exception to an Instagram post Sunday from Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso, calling the player he was once traded for a "BUM" and taking a shot at Alonso's new contract.
"Boy ya dad wish u was as good as me," McCoy wrote, adding that Alonso's four-year deal worth up to nearly $29 million is "garbage."
"My 2011 money," McCoy wrote.…
Tom Donahoe is back in a position of significant power in the NFL.
Donahoe, the former Buffalo Bills' general manager, was named the Philadelphia Eagles' senior director of player personnel Tuesday night as part of sweeping changes that included the firing of head coach Chip Kelly.

1. LeSean McCoy vs. Kiko Alonso looking like a win for the Bills.
McCoy’s return to Philadelphia has been the dominant storyline leading up to Sunday’s game. While his comments off the field about not shaking former coach Chip Kelly’s hand made for splashy headlines, the focus Sunday will be on McCoy’s ability to show the Eagles up close why they made a mistake in trading…
On the topic of maintaining longevity despite heavy mileage, Bernard Hopkins has credentials.
And when it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles, he also carries some serious bona fides.
So maybe folks ought to consider Hopkins' opinion on his dear team's decision to trade running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso.
"Oh, I'm pissed," Hopkins tol…
They say moving can be the most stressful time in a person's life.
C.J. Spiller knows this now. He has been back in Orchard Park this week, packing up five years of Buffalo Bills memories before starting his new job with the New Orleans Saints.
"I thought it would be a smooth cleanout," Spiller said Thursday morning at a Tim Hortons around the corner from Ralph Wilson St…
Doug Whaley has lived up to his word.
The Buffalo Bills' general manager said at the NFL Scouting Combine last month that he wanted to have all of his team's needs filled before heading into the draft.
Whaley didn't even wait for the start of free agency to do that, acquiring running back LeSean McCoy and quarterbacks Matt Cassel in trades, giving up linebacker Kiko Alon…
Normally when a star player under contract sticks around, it's not newsworthy.
Fred Jackson's situation was different.
The Buffalo Bills held discussions about what to do with Jackson, their four-time captain and most popular player of a barren era.
The idea of cutting him was debated in depth by the Bills' highest executives. A team source confirmed that the Bills appr…
Doug Whaley's not done wheeling and dealing.
The Buffalo Bills' general manager agreed to his second trade in as many days Wednesday, this one with the Minnesota Vikings for veteran quarterback Matt Cassel.
That comes a day after the Bills agreed to send linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for running back LeSean McCoy.
To acquire Cassel, the B…
LeSean McCoy is coming to the Buffalo Bills.
That's one of those "whoa" moments sports fans remember, down to where they were when they found out.
(I was at the University at Buffalo, getting ready to cover a basketball game --one of the other hats I wear for The News. To borrow a word from Doug Marrone, obviously my plans changed.)
After frantically texting and calling…
