Bills release running back LeSean McCoy

Bills release running back LeSean McCoy

Beane maintained that not until the decision was made to part ways with McCoy did they actively seek to trade him, nor did any teams really present anything concrete in terms of a trade offer for the veteran back.

It's easy to see why the Texans might get the itch to sign McCoy or at least bring him in for a workout: They're a contending team that lacks a top-notch option in the backfield.

McCoy averaged a career-low 3.2 yards per carry past year in Buffalo and struggled to show off the burst that made him a six-time Pro Bowl invitee. But he struggled past year when he finished with a career-worst 752 yards from scrimmage.

Singletary, the team's 2019 third-round pick, was a prolific runner in three seasons at Florida Atlantic, rushing for 4,287 yards and 66 touchdowns.

After drafting Singletary in late April, Bills GM Brandon Beane insisted to reporters that McCoy would remain the starter. He has been remarkably healthy, playing in 210 of 224 possible regular-season games.

"I've seen that", he said, referring to trade speculation. He also caught 51 passes, 26 of which came during his freshman season.

A person with direct knowledge of the decision confirmed to The Associated Press that the Bills have released the 31-year-old veteran in a stunning move Saturday as National Football League teams set their 53-player rosters.

McCoy had an inconsistent four seasons with the Bills.

But since the circumstances are much different for the Eagles at running back heading into Week 1 of the 2019 season, there's no need to even consider the possibility of McCoy returning for a second stint with the team.

McCoy is a six-time Pro Bowl selection, and though he isn't coming off his strongest season - in 2018, McCoy totaled 161 carries for 514 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games (13 starts) - he is still a very valuable running back to have on a roster.
