Does the Bills’ newest signing signal at a looming trade with the Eagles?


Eagles reunion coming?

There are dozens of mock drafts out there with a plethora of picks that the Eagles will be making throughout the seven rounds.  

Popular running back picks have been Josh Jacobs, Miles Sanders, Darrell Henderson, and Devin Singletary.  But what happens if the Eagles decide to pass on those running backs and address other areas?  

There’s plenty of talk that the Eagles will be addressing the defensive side of the ball in the first round and will target Miles Sanders in the second round.  But Sanders’ stock is quickly rising and the Eagles may miss out of him by the time their first second-round pick comes along.  The pick of Sanders may set off a domino effect of teams picking the top tier running backs, leaving the Eagles to select players for other positions of need.

However, if the fifth round comes along, and the Eagles don’t have a running back to complement new member of the midnight green Jordan Howard, is it too farfetched for the team to send their fifth-round pick to Buffalo for McCoy?

The Bills may be waiting for that opportunity to come up.  Their leading rusher last year was quarterback Josh Allen.  McCoy averaged a career-low 3.2 yards per carry, way down from his previous low of 4.0.  These factors may lead to the Bills giving Gore the lead job, who averaged 4.6 yards per carry in 2018, let Yeldon play the McCoy role, and recoup some draft picks to gain some youth in the running back group.  

A McCoy-Eagles reunion makes too much sense if the Eagles miss out on the draft’s top tier running backs.  Don’t be surprised if another old face is back in midnight green come Saturday afternoon.
