LeSean McCoy Optimistic About Season With Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy rushed for 514 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games last season, leading many to believe his best days are behind him. However, McCoy doesn’t seem to think so and believes he will bounce back this upcoming season, even though he turns 31 in July.

“It’s hard to replace a guy like me,” McCoy told reporters Saturday. “I’m a good player and I feel like now, this year, they put a lot of guys around me. The front office got me some big hogs up front. And we’ll see what happens this year. I feel good and hopefully this year will speak for itself.”

Despite how LeSean McCoy feels, the Buffalo Bills don ‘t plan on taking any chances if he struggles and spent the offseason adding depth to the position. The team selected Devin Singletary in the third round of the draft, signed former Jaguars tailback T.J. Yeldon and, brought in 36-year-old future Hall of Fame runner Frank Gore on a one-year deal.

Gore, who rushed for 722 yards in 14 games last season, has already inspired McCoy to be at his best next season. What does this mean for the Buffalo Bills?

“Every day I see (Gore) playing hard,” McCoy said. “I see his growth, his smarts, and his ability. That shows me that anything is possible.”
In addition to Gore’s work ethic inspiring him, McCoy said he is also using his age as motivation to play better.

“I use age and that type of thing to motivate me,” McCoy said. “My whole life I’ve kind of been the underdog. Is he big enough? Is he tough enough? Can he play in the pros? I feel like guys like myself come around every once in a while and I want to stick to that. I’m up for it.”
