Bills Will Trade LB Kiko Alonso For RB Shady McCoy
The Buffalo Bills have been teasing some trade rumors recently, one of which included interest in RB LeSean McCoy. Sources today have confirmed that a deal has been made but not finalized.
In return, the Bills will send linebackerKiko Alonso to the Eagles, the source said.
Drafted in the second round of the 2009 draft out of Pittsburgh, McCoy has spent his entire six-season career in Philadelphia.
He rushed for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns last season for the Eagles.
Alonso missed all of the 2014-15 season with a torn ACL, but in his rookie season of 2013, he played every defensive snap and ranked third in the NFL with 159 tackles.
A source told ESPN's Adam Caplan that Alonso's rehab has gone very well and he has increased his training activities and has started running.
An Oregon product, Alonso will reunite with his former college coach, Chip Kelly, who will enter his third season in charge of the Eagles.
The trade cannot be made official until the new league year begins next Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.
McCoy's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, took to Twitter to say that no deal has yet been finalized.
