LeSean McCoy on future with Philadelphia Eagles: 'I love it here'
McCoy, who was named to his third Pro Bowl this season, is scheduled to be paid $9.75 million in 2015, after signing a five-year, $45 million deal during the 2012 offseason.
His cap number for next season is $11.95 million and the Eagles will have $4.4 million in dead money if McCoy is cut.
"The season just ended, and . . . I'm an Eagle. I love it here," McCoy said to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "My six years here have been excellent. I've been very, very, very productive here. I have a great relationship with my coaches, the owner.”
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said during a radio appearance Monday on WIP that he wants McCoy back in the fold for next season.
"We'll see what happens. It's a business. Anything can happen; I know that. But I'm sure we can work something out. And hopefully, everything does work out. They know how I feel about them."
McCoy, 26, ran for 1,319 yards (3rd in the NFL) with five touchdowns and added 28 catches and 155 yards, both career-lows.
McCoy said anything is possible because of what the Eagles did last season when they cut former teammate DeSean Jackson, who was let go after setting career-highs in catches and yards.
"I'd be lying if I say it never flashes in my mind," McCoy said. "Because it happened to [Jackson], off his best year. So you never know."
