LeSean McCoy signs 1-day contract to retire with Eagles

Two-time All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy is signing a one-day contract with Philadelphia and will retire as an Eagle on Friday.

McCoy, 33, and the team made the announcement Thursday.

“After 12 years in the NFL, I’ve decided to retire an Eagle because this is home to me. I still have that green inside my heart,” McCoy wrote in an article published on the team’s website.

“There are times when I’d see the Eagles on TV, and it just felt weird not wearing that uniform. … I’ve just always seen myself as an Eagle. It’s only right to come back home and retire an Eagle.”

McCoy earned Pro Bowl honors six times, four with the Eagles. He made All-Pro in 2011 and 2013, also with the Eagles. He led the NFL with 2,146 yards from scrimmage in ’13. He led the league with 20 rushing and receiving touchdowns in ’11.

McCoy is a two-time Super Bowl champ, having hooked on with Kansas City in 2019 and Tampa Bay last season.

He finishes with 11,102 rushing yards and 73 TDs in 170 games (141 starts) with the Eagles (2009-14), Buffalo Bills (2015-18), Chiefs and Bucs. He also had 518 career catches for 3,898 yards and 16 TDs.

McCoy was traded away to the Bills by then-Eagles coach Chip Kelly, who lasted one game short of three seasons in Philly.

“The only regret I’ve ever had was not spending my entire career as an Eagle,” McCoy wrote. “I grew up in Harrisburg, played my college football at Pittsburgh, and was drafted by the Eagles. I never thought it would have been like that, but it would have been so cool to finish my career only having played in this one state.”

The Eagles selected McCoy in the second round of the 2009 draft.
