[BN] Blitz newsletter: LeSean McCoy given 60-1 odds at MVP

Online sportsbook Bovada on Tuesday released its offseason odds for the winner of the NFL's Most Valuable Player award. Bills running back LeSean McCoy came in at 60-1, ranking for 28th out of 46 players listed.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was given the best MVP odds at 13-2, followed by Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (7-1) and Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (19-2). Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell (40-1) was given the best odds of any non-quarterback.

McCoy was the only Bills player who made the list. However, former Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor made the cut, going off at 125-1.

The Bills' last MVP was Thurman Thomas in 1991. The only non-quarterback to win the award in the last decade was running back Adrian Peterson, who topped 2,000 rushing yards with the Vikings in 2012.

Bills Position Preview: The News' positional overview hit defensive ends on Tuesday. Jerry Hughes figures to have a solid hold on the right defensive end job after earning a career-best Pro Football Focus grade of 85 in 2017. Shaq Lawson, though, will need to make strides this year and could be pushed for play time by free agent addition Trent Murphy, whom PFF already slots in as the starter.
