Philly Freedom: The Philadelphia Eagles Have Traded Lesean McCoy To The Buffalo Bills For LB Kiko Alonso

March 3, 2015 0


Being a native of Philadelphia, the moves our sports teams make. Today, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded Pro Bowl running back Lesean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso who played for Chip Kelly at Oregon. Ever since I was a kid the Eagles have made moves like this that leave fans wondering why.

According to ESPN, 

The Philadelphia Eagles have a trade in place to send running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

In return, the Bills will send linebacker Kiko 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 tallied 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.

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 can not be made official until the new league year begins next Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.
