LeSean McCoy has been one of the NFL’s most versatile running backs since 2009, excelling as both a runner and a receiver. But he’ll retire this week and finish his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, the team that drafted him.
The Eagles announced on Thursday that McCoy will retire from the team on Friday. Before formally ending his 12-year NFL career, he will sign a one-day contract with the team. From 2009 to 2014, McCoy was a member of the Eagles’
offense. He had 44 rushing touchdowns during that time, third most in franchise history, and 6,792 rushing yards, the most in Eagles history. During his six years in Philadelphia, McCoy led the NFL in every major rushing category in at least one season. He also holds single-season rushing yardage and touchdown records. But LeSean McCoy didn’t just dominate while with the Philadelphia Eagles.

He made three straight Pro Bowl appearances after being traded to the Buffalo Bills in 2015. After leaving Buffalo at the end of the 2018 season, McCoy signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, reuniting with former Eagles coach Andy Reid, and winning his first Super Bowl ring. In 2020, he joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and won another Super Bowl alongside Tom Brady. McCoy could be considered for the Hall of Fame in a few years, with two Super Bowl rings, over 11,000 rushing yards, and 15,000 yards from scrimmage. But for the time being, he’ll be content with the honor of ending his NFL career with the Eagles. Nokia News
