Eagles rumors: Jordan Howard ‘sleeper’ trade target for Philly

McCoy, who missed the Bills' Week 3 win over Minnesota because of a rib injury, ran a season-high 24 times for 85 yards in Sunday's win over the Tennessee Titans.

McCoy: McCoy might not be the same player he was during his days with the Eagles, but he isn't as far off as many think.

McDermott was asked directly if the Eagles had called and if McCoy is "available" via trade.

Another important deadline is October 30, the date by which National Football League teams can make in-season trades.

The Philadelphia Eagles want that old thing back. In four games, McCoy has rushed for 170 yards on 45 carries and has an additional 64 yards on 10 receptions. This week, Jay Ajayi was the latest victim of the injury bug after it was announced on Monday the running back would miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL against the Minnesota Vikings, putting the team in a hard position.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has been involved in trade rumors this week. He averaged 4.0 yards per carry in 2016 and 5.4 yards per carry in 2017.

So who would Philadelphia exactly have in mind for a potential running back to bring on board? Also, the presence of a raw and fundamentally flawed rookie quarterback coupled with a wide receiving core that is unproven and inconsistent allows defenses to key in on eliminating McCoy's impact.

Off-the-field: McCoy does not come without his issues off the field.

Apparently, however, the Eagles have no plans to pursue Bell. Or, the Eagles could decide to keep him for $6.1 million next season. As a matter of fact, since joining the Bills, McCoy has remained one of the best, if not the best, running back in the NFL. That is the major question. McCoy has long denied the allegations against him.

The Steelers could potentially have an in-state trade partner for Le'Veon Bell.
