What the asking price for LeSean McCoy might be

What the asking price for LeSean McCoy might be

With the recent news that Eagles RB Jay Ajayi would be out for the season with a torn ACL, speculation emerged that the Eagles would pursue Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell to help in their time of need. They are in the market for a running back, have cap room and have shown their willingness to bring back former players in the past.

McCoy was of course drafted by the Eagles in 2009, and spent his first six National Football League seasons there.

McCoy has two years left on his current deal.

US unemployment falls to 3.7 per cent - lowest since 1969
As a result, the Fed is all but guaranteed to stick to its plan of raising rates four times before the end of next year, he added. Nonfarm payrolls increased by 134,000, fewer than expected and slowed in part by job losses attributed to Hurricane Florence .

Ajayi, in his team's loss to Minnesota on Sunday, carried the ball just eight times for 29 yards.

That information, though, could have been gleaned from a source with the Eagles interested in either maintaining leverage for eventual trade talks with the Steelers or possibly concerned about the morale of the running backs still active with the team. Philadelphia could certainly fit the latter part of the bill, and the team was willing to trade a fourth-round pick to the Dolphins past year for a lesser back in Ajayi. We're unclear of who they actively try to get, but which running backs could be linked to the Eagles?

The Eagles have restructured defensive tackle Fletcher Cox's contract, which created more cap space for this year ($6.5 million) and next ($11.7 million). Or will elder statesman Darren Sproles come back soon and usurp everyone?
