Bills running back LeSean McCoy addressed reporters Wednesday in the aftermath of a report from Josh Reed that the Eagles had inquired about a trade that would return McCoy to the Philadelphia Eagles:
Q: So these rumors that you’re in line to be traded to Philadelphia?
A: I heard about it. I just kind of stay focused on the job at task, at hand. I’ll let that stuff work itself out. We’ll see what happens.
Q: Do you know whether or not a call was actually made?
A: I’m not going to get into that. That’s for my agent and the guys upstairs to work that out.
Q: LeSean, when something like that does happen, do you contact the organization or Sean [McDermott] or Brandon [Beane] just to kind of get a feel for what is going on?
A: Yeah, I mean sometimes. This particular one, I just left it alone.
Q: How would you feel about a potential trade back there?
A: I’m not going to even engage in that whole questions about a trade. We’ll see what happens.
Q: When you saw [Jay] Ajayi was hurt though, did you expect that something might percolate there given your history with them and [the fact that] they need a running back right now probably?
A: To be honest, I never really pay too much attention to it. When he got hurt, I kind of found out about it late. You know how it is, you worry about your team, you worry about yourself. I kind of got the news late.
Q: LeSean, at some point, do you wish we could just talk about football and stuff like that? These things seem to always pop up, these other things seem to crop up. Does it get tiresome?
A: No, I just stay focused. I don’t pay attention to it too much, trade stuff and everything else. I should never have gotten traded anyway, I was killing stuff, you know? I never really pay too much attention to it. This week, we’ve got the Texans; I’ll worry about that. They’ve got a good defense, a lot of big name guys on that defensive line. I’ve got my hands full this week. Last week was my first week of really getting out there and running. [I’m] just trying to get some rust off, get going, play after play. It felt good.
