Buffalo Bills Move On From LeSean McCoy

In a somewhat surprising move, the Buffalo Bills have moved on from six-time Pro Bowler LeSean McCoy. The veteran running back, who was their highest-profile player, was released on Saturday as the NFL club made roster cuts to get down to the 53-man limit ahead of the regular season. For most of the preseason, the Bills management had declared that they believed McCoy would be the starting running back when the season opened next Sunday against the New York Jets on the road. But their public statements ran counter to what many believed. That it would serve the Bills better by cutting McCoy, who is 31, and saving on his $6.175 million salaries while carrying $2.875 million on dead money against the cap. McCoy was in the last year of his contract and his production was trending down.
