LeSean McCoy on Chip Kelly: 'I don't think he likes or respects stars'
"I don't think he likes or respects the stars. I'm being honest," McCoy said, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I think he likes the fact that it's 'Chip Kelly and the Eagles.'"
McCoy was traded to Buffalo last month in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso. Former NFL running back and current NFL Network analyst LaDanian Tomlinson said after the trade that McCoy had told him "he and Chip Kelly's relationship had become a little strained."
Kelly was given control over the team's roster construction at the start of this offseason and made multiple high-impact moves. In addition to the McCoy trade, Kelly also traded starting quarterback Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for Sam Bradford. Last spring, before Kelly was given player personnel duties, the Eagles also released Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson.
