And now it's possible that he could be reuniting with his old team, as the Eagles reportedly inquired about his services.
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. Do you think Ajayi going on IR changes the status of Bell in relations to a trade?
One of the top running backs, Steelers LeVeon Bell, may get traded even with his return set for Week 7. But McCoy would be less expensive, both in trade price and in salary over the next two years despite having a contract for 2019. The deal, which was completed before Ajayi's injury, created $6.5 million in cap space this season and $11.7 million more next year for Philadelphia.
McCoy was of course drafted by the Eagles in 2009, and spent his first six National Football League seasons there.
South Africa's finance minister Nhlanhla Nene resigns
Nene returned to the finance minister seat in February 2018, after he was appointed to the position in Ramaphosa's new cabinet. The president said it was in the same manner of service to the country that Nene had chose to step down.
With Ajayi gone, the Eagles are left with Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles, and Josh Adams as their options in the backfield. If they were to add another running back, then they might have a decision to make.
The Eagles announced they placed Ajayi on the injured reserve, but did not give specifics on the injury.
However, for a team off to a 2-3 start while attempting to defend its Super Bowl title, Bell could be seen as the kind of elite talent who could realistically put Philadelphia back over the top.
