During a recent interview with ESPN’s The Magazine, McCoy talked about the trade to Buffalo, the what it will be like to play for Rex Ryan and his thoughts about whether there were any race issues with his old coach Chip Kelly.
During the interview, McCoy was asked about his troubled relationship with Kelly and how he handled black star players on the team. McCoy believes their relationship was never great from the beginning and shares his thoughts about the situation.
“I feel like I always respected him as a coach. I think that's the way he runs his team. He wants the full control. You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players. He got rid of them the fastest. That's the truth. There's a reason. ... It's hard to explain with him. But there's a reason he got rid of all the black players -- the good ones -- like that.”
According to ESPN, the Eagles organization declined to respond to McCoy’s remarks.
The Bills will be in Philly on December 13th and you already know fans have marked their calendar for that game. Despite the trade to Buffalo, McCoy still has love for Philly and Eagles fans.
"I do love the Eagles' fans. I have nothing but great memories there, so I'm excited to go back. I'm sure that they'll show me some love. I have nothing but love for that city."
