Ex-Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is already pissing on the Bills trade for Birds’ wideout Jordan Matthews:
McCoy argued there is “obviously a difference” between traded Sammy Watkins and Matthews, adding: “If you compare the two, it’s obvious you can agree who is better.”
The wideout was likely to leave in free agency, prompting the Bills to engineer yesterday’s trade that netted a 2018 second-rounder from Los Angeles and a 2018 third-rounder from Philly to pair with the first-rounder Buffalo received from Kansas City in the April swap that allowed the Chiefs to move up in the draft and grab quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
McCoy, however, isn’t buying any of that as a reason to cut bait with a talented teammate like Watkins.
“I don’t know. The good thing about that is it’s past my pay grade,” Shady said of Buffalo’s organizational approach. “Those guys make the decisions for our team.”
