LeSean McCoy recruits Jeremy Maclin to Buffalo


Buffalo Bills running back, and former Eagle, LeSean McCoy placed a record-setting wager on the 2017 NBA Finals.

The Kansas City Chiefs shocked the football world on Friday night by releasing wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, a player they signed to a five-year, $55 million contract in March of 2015.

Sammy Watkins' extended injury-induced absence played a part in that, to be sure, but the depth of the Bills' receiving corps left plenty to be desired.

"I know he could help us out tremendously", McCoy said. So it's not too surprising McCoy is putting on a recruiting hat, and it should be noted Bills head coach Sean McDermott was secondary coach and defensive coordinator for the Eagles during the time McCoy and Maclin were there. "But you never know".

Though McCoy hinted he knew something everyone else wasn't privy to yet, he backtracked just a touch, explaining that nothing is imminent with Maclin's status. The two were back-to-back selections by the Eagles in the 2009 draft, and spent six seasons together in Philadelphia.

The recruiting efforts of McCoy and Tyrod could go a long way in Buffalo signing the veteran receiver.

Maclin has extensive experience in the West Coast-style passing offense, spending most of his career in Andy Reid's version of it. Rick Dennison is incorporating the Mike Shanahan/Gary Kubiak West Coast offense at Buffalo. "I think him and Sammy would do awesome work together, but it's a business so you have to figure out how it works out". A lot of things would have to work out for that to happen.
