Report: LeSean McCoy Traded To Buffalo

LeSeanMcCoy1The bombshells just keep on falling.

On the same day that Cary Williams and Trent Cole were released, the Eagles had one more big move up their sleeves.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Eagles have a deal in place that will send running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso.

Alonso, a former Oregon Duck, missed all of last season with a torn ACL.

Wow!! Chip wants Oregon in Philly. Straight up for Kiko just doesnt make sense. The Eagles could have restructured his contract. This isnt good..

In Chip we trust! Now that he has his ILB Ryan’s is next, we’re talking about having over 60 million in cap space, the writing is on the wall fellas, he’s going all in for Mariota and is getting all his other needs in FA, we can all see his blueprint, it’s something totally different, I love it!!!!!

im shocked anyone gave anything for McCoy. he is making $11 million this year, and his production would have to exceed $11 million in value for him to have any trade value whatsoever.

this is a great trade, because it frees up so much more cap space, and RBs are very easy to find for cheap.

Trent Richardson got a 1st round pick because he was on a cheap rookie contract, and was 1 year removed from being the 3rd overall pick. and in hindsight, it was a flat out awful trade for the Colts.

Eagles have been pretty good at selecting RB’s. I also feel that this draft is very deep at the RB position. It’s possible we strike out in the RB department, but it’s also possible we select someone that can step in right away. RB is one of the few positions that can help a team immediately through the draft.

What this really does? Makes the eagles have literally about 45 million under the cap this year, basically we have more cap space than almost any other team. IF the eagles don’t make a splash in FA, than this trade is a waste.

CJ Spiller, welcome to the Nest! I have no problem taking him and that ILB, with the extra 7 million left from Shadys money after paying both, now Ryan’s goes which puts another 6 million towards the cap, guys, this is looking good, by next week we’ll have our linebackers set, the secondary set, about 30 million left to add some depth, after that it’s on to the draft for our franchise QB and were looking good for Chips first offseason in charge.

Jeff McClane is reporting at the combine that when Chip talked to RBs strong lower body was a must.

Zukny
March 3, 2015 7:37 pm

Now let me explain this as I sorta had a feeling this was coming.
2009 – McCoy 2nd round. Note: RB class was deep that year.
2010 – Nate Allen 2nd round. Note: S class was deep that year.
2011 – bust year.
2012 – Mychal Kendricks 2nd round. Note: LB class was deep that year.
2013 – Zack Ertz – 2nd Round. tight End class was deep that year.
2014 – Jordan Matthews – WR class was deep that year.

What does all of this tell you? Is that the Eagles always target the deepest part of the draft in the second round and every single season it has worked out for them, except for Nate Allen.

So here i am thinking: HOw the heck are the eagles going to draft a RB in the second round when we have 3 RB’s? I figured somoene had to move: Polk – no one wants him, and Chip loves a bruiser. Sproles – Eagles were going to keep him and I figured he had the most likely chance to be moved for like a 3rd or 4th round pick.

I didn’t exactly expect it to be McCoy but the return we are getting for him is basically gold. Alonso is an animal.

If my prediction is correct, Eagles like always will target a position of Need in the first round: Safety or CB & in the second round we will go Runningback in a class that is extremely deep.

I also believes this puts to rest the move for Mariota. You can’t draft a RB if you go after Mariota.

I just sorta pissed myself off. I wrote a nice logical post and now all I can think about is my god damn Jersey.

My father bought me an Eagles jersey this year for Christmas. Basically my first Jersey since I was 10 years old.. Now 33. I loved that fukin jersey! It’s obviously a McCoy jersey and I was only able to wear it 1 time before he was traded.

I’ll obviously have to continue wearing the jersey forever since McCoy has been the greatest RB to ever put on an Eagles uniform.. But it does sorta get under my skin that they would trade the 1 player everyone in this town loved.

Problem is you have to spend 90% of your cap this season. Eagles are basically lining themselves up to make a few big splashes in a win now approach. You don’t go after a few free agents if you want to win 3 years from now.

We won’t know until draft day, but I believe this all but sets it up to put money into a few key players & win now.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG.

Is Sam Hinkie running this ship? What the fuck is going on in South Philly? It would be one thing if all this talent is being replaced by something, but that has yet to be seen. Trent Cole was a pretty damn productive player last year. The DE, while slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose. Shady is Shady. Sure, last year was subpar compared to his previous breakout seasons, but he’s still pound for pound the best RB in Eagles history and is only 26.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s the shock of it all. Trent Cole and Todd Herramens were the two longest tenured Eagles BY FAR and they’re now gone. LeSean was arguably the face of the franchise and made one hell of a fucking t-shirt that we’ll now have to ship over to Africa (Packaged with those fresh, midnight green “Sanchize”‘s). BUT, RB’s are a dime a dozen now. I’m comfortable with a healthy (if that’s even possible) Darren Sproles and letting Polk run angry. Kiko Alonso is young (24), very good (when healthy as he missed last season with a torn ACL) and should be a staple in our D for years to come. Of course he’s a fucking Oregon boy which is REALLY starting to piss me off, but in the end this might be a great move. Again, I don’t know. Hopefully we got a draft pick or 8 to go along with it because straight up that trade looks preposterous, even if Buffalo is taking on that bloated contract.

Still, there’s a lot of cap space being freed with not that much mega talent hitting the market. Obviously Maclin is going to get paid by the Birds and they’ll try to keep Brandon Graham and go after Byron Maxwell, but who else? They just gonna buy a whole new secondary? Drop $30 million and Nick Foles to some greedy bastard holding a Top 5 pick? My head hurts just thinking about everything.

If this whole “Culture Wins Football” stuff doesn’t actually win anything soon then somebody put a gun in Chip Kelly’s mouth and make sure I’m standing right behind him.

Great spelling with your venting, when I go off my words are a mess. I’m trying to digest this, and coming to the conclusion that anything we think won’t happen is wrong for us to try and say it won’t

Until free agency and the draft is done, I’m not going to even “hint” at any notion of a rebuild.

I’m listening to Chip on channel 580 (FIOS), check it out, not sure what channel it is on Comcast..

EHL, I heard Sal Palantonio too today and he made a very strong point about getting nothing for your starting cornerback…not even a very low draft pick…this sounds like a salary dump and just getting rid one of the best running backs in the league for an injured linebacker?
This only makes sense if the Eagles go hard and heavy in free agency and then sell the house to get Mariota and get rid of Foles.

I see this as a sign that Kelly will very likely go up the draft to pick Mariota. I would not be surprised if the Eagles do not re-sign Maclin either.

I think Chip is going to draft Mariota and build a team of players who will mature with him.

It makes no sense to keep guys around who will be past their prime when Mariota is ready to win.

I don’t believe Chip is looking to ‘win now’. He is looking to ‘build now’, and win as quickly as his young team can gel…

If that’s his plan, then I have more respect for him than I did yesterday.

I am ok with Deal though I wish they got a 2nd or 3rd Rd Pick along with Alonso
Bills have no 1st Round this Draft as it went to Browns to move up to get Sammi Watkins last year and the Eagles already have the Bills 4th Rd pick
In the RB Bryce Brown deal last year …
Either way, I believe I have stated many times that the Philadelphia Eagles would truly not be Chip Kely’s Team until the “Big 3” were gone and they were
Mike Vick, D-Jax and LeSean McCoy.. Well now it’s done and Chip will mold this Roster in his likeness… As I stated all this a Off-Season
Out with the Old, In with the New…
Chip sensed that he got all he could from the AR Holdover Players, and that it was time to move on… I was just hoping that it wouldn’t be with a Roster Full of Oregon Ducks

Crazy shit, shady is awesome, but I think with a solid line any decent rb will get yards. Shady doesn’t have much left in the tank with the workload he has had over the last 4 years. He came in young but I believe he will be broken down within 2 years tops. If the lb we are getting recovers 100% we will be better for this trade

The plan is clear.

Its exactly the plan I said would happen 2 years ago (and which everyone derided of course).

You must all hate it when I am always so right.

BTW – Mariotta is not in the plan….because his acquisition would render the last two years irrelevant.

Let me explain.

It takes years for offences to be developed. It takes years for QBs to develop.

Year 1 and I said offence would be featured in the draft. I was chided. I explined why. It takes years for young QBs to develop. What did CHip do? Chip added a new tackle and then Ertz. You may all remember I predicted Ertz while just about everyone was calling for a D player. I knew they were going to take Ertz for 2 reasons. Firstly, a TE is a young Qbs best friend. Secondly, it takes years for QBs to gain familiarity and efficiency with the weapons around them. Chip is a student of the game, and he’s one of these analytics guys. He was, as I said, thinking well into the future…to Foles Qbing prime (27-31).

Year 2 and I again said offence would be featured regardless of our pathetically ranked D. I said over and over that D would not be featured till year 3. Again, this was chided even though this is EXACTLY what is happening.

Year 2 and Matthews and Huff and SProles are added. The WRs are important to add in year 2, because again, it takes years for them to develop familiarity in the NFL.

Now Kelly has a QB, TE, and 2 wrs that have been playing, practicing, and watching film together for 2/3 years.

YOu think he’s just going to hit the reset button and start that all over again with Mariotta?? That’d be a pretty counter-productive move. Don;t think its going to happen.

Because its year 3. Defense time. You are seeing a predictable overhaul of the D in year 3. Doesn;t take as long to acclimate the D to the new systems. Add 5 new players (through FA AND the draft) this year and they’ll begin jelling mid-season. Should be playing well together by the end of the year.
2016 and Eagles will have a completely revamped O who have been playing together for 3 years, and a D heading into their 2nd year together.

Exactly as I told you it would happen.

I cannot believe Kelly is going to throw away the last 2 years of growth on O and start that process all over again.

Your plan is flawed, Vinniedaloser…

Chip wants his people…and he is doing all that he can to get them

Look at all of the Oregon Ducks on this roster

He’s clearing capspace…setting up to make the big move for the biggest and best Duck he has ever coached.

The guy who he compares to Peyton Manning

The guy that he calls the best player he has ever coached

He is going to do whatever it takes to get Mariota and Foles will be another causality…

Book It!!

Mariota to Manning. We are doomed to fail if anyone compares him to Manning favorably, especially Chip. There is concern that his skill set will not translate to the NFL well. They’ll sink or swim together! Should be interesting to watch. This is the same man who drafted Marcus Smith, got nothing for Jackson, and just traded a top three RB for a another Duck with two ACL tears(I admit that this one could still turn out good). We’ll have to wait and see

I agree, most of the Oregon Players on the Eagles Roster I am not very High on, but Kiko Alonso is an exception to this

I wonder if anyone has the Time to Pull out some of My Archive Mock Drafts from 2013 for they will find I had Alonso Listed many Times as a Mid-Round Pick that Year…

Damn its been awhile since I been on GCOBB but if I came back on you know something huge has had to happen. The good thing about Fantasy Football is you follow your players every game. I owned Kiko Alonso (IDP) and watched every game he played in his rookie season.

Extremely high motor. All over the field. Does not miss a tackle. He always does something that WOW’s you like how the (bleep) did he just do that? You now have 3 legit playmakers on defense and im almost certain that number will increase. Kendricks, Kiko and Fletcher Cox.

That is a distinct possibility..

Tell me that’s not a total upgrade? The only cost is what we pay Worilds which is around 7 million per year, taking that from the 60 million we will have once we dump Ryans is chump change, secondary is next. I’m loving this guys!

I like the trade. Alonzo is a physical, very athletic 24 yr old LB. I don’t want to minimalize what Mccoy accomplished either, he was a great player at times. I thought last year though that he looked out of breath, tentative and danced may too much behind the line of scrimmage. He was almost worthless inside the 5. He looked like he may be hitting the proverbial RB wall. IDK. I just think Chip feels like he can employ a more physical N/S runner for far less than 12 million per year. I’m not sold on Chip or his offense, but you can’t say the guy doesn’t have balls.

This is a long-term reset that started 2 years ago. Everything he’s done has been about setting up a period of long terms success. And while I am still not a big fan of the constant hurry-up, I see how he’s thinking long term vis-a-vis the roster.

He’s not going to suddenly:

A) blow up the long term plan by trading away the top picks in the next several drafts.
B) Render irrelevant the last 2/3 years his young QB has had developing with his young WRs/Tes and start that multi-year process again with a new QB
C) D the opposite of his buddy Belichick. Everything is exactly like Belichick. Honestly….don;t you all see Belichick in these moves? Today was vintage Belichick. (Richard Seymour, Welker, Moss)

When in doubt go cheaper and younger, never spend $$ on skill players and never, ever, trade away your draft for 1 guy….in fact always do the opposite.

Chip knows….successful franchises trade down. Stupid franchise trade up.

As far as NE is concerned, their drafts has been average to good. W/O Brady, they are a middle of the road team based on their drafts . That is the truth, check out the production of their draft picks, not earth shattering.

If it is a long term reset as you have stated, then yes he will go get his QB because it is a long term reset. Kelly clearly is cleaning house and bringing in his players, we know Chip values the QB position more than any other and will not settle on that position, even if it means taking a step back to move forward. Clearly Chip does not care about moving players on, Foles is no different.

Other guys will be brought in from rounds 3-7. What is so difficult to understand. You guys act as if the Eagles must go after top tier free agents at every position and no draft picks will be left after a trade. Oh no the sky is falling. So to answer your question with my scenario…yes…really. You think he would not pursue a qb he would want over draft picks…really? Oh that is right…he has Nick Brady..lol.
