expectations was what would happen with star running back LeSean McCoy. With a shuffled offense Authentic Marcus Murphy Jersey , a rookie quarterback, and a losing season ahead (not to mention several alleged civil incidents that came up in the offseason), people were wondering if McCoy could be traded at some point.Now we can believe at least one team is exploring the option, with WIVB’s Josh Reed reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have reached out to Buffalo discussing trading McCoy back to the team where he grew into an NFL star (and where he’s the all-time leading rusher). The Eagles, who defeated the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl last year, are currently scuffling at 2-3 and lost their starting runner Jay Ajayi to a torn ACL.If the Bills are to be persuaded to trade McCoy, they have to decide that the return value is worth the cost of losing the one star player on their offense. McCoy’s production, experience, and gameday mentality are all positive attributes that would help Josh Allen’s development in his rookie season. Can the Eagles (or another team) offer enough to offset that loss? Would they be willing to, for a 30 year old running back on a career-worst rushing pace?Philadelphia has an extra second round pick available, and are projected to receive fourth and sixth round compensatory picks from free agent departures like Trey Burton and Beau Allen. How high would they be willing to go?There’s also a salary implication to any trade discussion, though the impact is much lower than it would’ve been a year ago. Right now, the Bills owe McCoy just under $9 million for the season. If they trade him White Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , it would accelerate an additional $2.625M of his signing bonus onto Buffalo’s 2018 salary cap as dead money. However, the team would save around $4 million from McCoy’s remaining 2018 salary, plus $6.425M in 2019, by not needing to pay McCoy’s salary anymore. The team to trade for McCoy would owe him those sums.Update: Anthony Gargano, a radio host in Philadelphia, reported that the Bills have started negotiations by asking for a second and a third round pick in exchange for McCoy. The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation is helping remake waterfronts and improving recreational trail systems in two former Rust Belt cities that meant so much to the late former owner of pro football's Buffalo Bills.The Detroit-based philanthropy on Wednesday announced investments of $50 million each for West Riverfront Park in Detroit and LaSalle Park in Buffalo, New York. Each is being renamed Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Centennial Park.Another $50 million each will go to support regional trails in southeastern Michigan and western New York.Wednesday's announcement marks what would have been Wilson's 100th birthday. Wilson died in 2014 at age 95 at his Grosse Pointe Shores home in suburban Detroit.He was born in Columbus, Ohio, but his family moved to Detroit. Wilson took over his father's insurance business, and in 1959 he founded the Bills and helped establish the American Football League."Ralph was committed to exercise, staying active and enjoying life," his widow, Mary Wilson White Jordan Mills Jersey , said in a release. "It would make Ralph so happy to see people of all ages enjoying these enhanced parks and trails for years to come."West Riverfront Park is 22 acres (8.9 hectares) along the Detroit River. It's part of the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy's plan to develop 5.5 miles (8.8 kilometers) of the riverfront.The 77-acre (31-hectare) LaSalle Park sits where the Niagara River meets Lake Erie. A planning grant from the Wilson Foundation supported a community engagement process led by Buffalo city officials and the University at Buffalo Regional Institute to create a vision for the park."Foundations don't build parks. Communities build parks," said David Egner, the foundation's president and chief executive."The signature parks mirror each other in many ways, with both situated at the front door to each city and region along an urban waterfront and international border," Egner added. He said the foundation also wanted to fill in gaps in trails running through southeastern Michigan and western New York.Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown calls Wilson one of the city's "greatest champions.""His vision illuminated our landscape and his humanity enriched our community," Brown said.Prior to Wednesday's announcement, the Wilson Foundation already had invested $25 million in parks and trails in the Buffalo area and southeastern Michigan.The foundation focuses on projects to benefit children, young adults, working-class families, caregivers and livable communities.
