It’s been a tough offseason for NFL running back LeSean McCoy, who remains a free agent and is having a tough time finding much interest.
McCoy is now 33 years old and is not close to the feature back that he was when he played in Philadelphia.
McCoy has been selected to the Pro Bowl six times, and he’s rushed for more than 11,000 yards in his career. He’s also been fortunate the last two seasons to land on a team that won the Super Bowl.
But now, many have suggested that, at 33, McCoy should call it a career.
The running back doesn’t feel the same way, though he has occasionally questioned whether it was time to hang it up.
“I’ve had some talks to my agent Drew Rosenhaus. I was contemplating retirement. I’ve had some teams reach out. I think right now, it’s just all about being in shape, being ready for the call and also the right road, the right fit,” McCoy told NFL Network’s MJ Acosta Tuesday on NFL Total Access.
“I want to go to a team where I can compete. I want to go to a team where I can contribute. And make a playoff, hopefully championship run. That’s the biggest thing, I think, from winning two championships. It’s hard to go to a team where you don’t see anything happening.
“That’s something that I think about winding my career down and I’m about to finish out. I want to go somewhere so I can have some fun and win.”
