LeSean McCoy won’t be with Chiefs in 2020

Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday on “NFL Now” that LeSean McCoy plans to play in 2020, but it will not be in the red and gold.

“He thinks he’s got some good football left. It will not be in Kansas City for him in 2020,” said Garafolo.

Garafolo also gave a couple of potential landing spots for McCoy, including a potential reunion with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he spent the first six years of his career.

“I would not discount the possibility of him returning to the Eagles,” said Garafolo.

Garafolo also gave another potential landing spot for McCoy. “I also would not discount the possibility that he meets up with Anthony Lynn out with the Chargers, who are going to have some changes in the backfield.”

After Philadelphia traded him to the Bills, McCoy spent four years with Buffalo. Kansas City picked him up on a one-year deal in the preseason after he was surprisingly cut by the Bills.

In his only season with the Chiefs, McCoy ran for 465 yards and four touchdowns, and he also caught 28 passes for 181 yards and a score.

He had a much bigger role early in the season but began to disappear from the game-plan heading into the latter half. He was a healthy scratch for Super Bowl LIV.

As an unrestricted free agent, the 31-year-old is now in control of the next phase of his career.
