This is an interesting story from Jeff McLane of Philly.com.
McLane says that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly called Bills running back LeSean McCoy this past week, but once McCoy learned that it was Kelly who was on the phone, he hung up on him.
He tried again on Tuesday, according to sources with knowledge of the call. McCoy didn’t recognize the number and answered. When Kelly identified himself, McCoy hung up. On Wednesday, McCoy said he stood by offseason comments he made about Kelly’s not respecting stars and getting rid of all the “good black players.”
“I know he was pissed, and he should be pissed, rightly so,” Kelly said.
Of course McCoy is still mad at Kelly for trading him this past offseason and I can’t say I’m surprised at all that he hung up on him.
It’s kind of funny that after all this time Kelly decided to attempt to bury the hatchet with the way things ended, but it seems as though he waited a little too long to reach out to McCoy.
Kelly now has to live with the fact that essentially trading McCoy for DeMarco Murray hasn’t worked out at all this season and the money he spent on Murray has been a waste.
