LeSean McCoy, Eagles Agree To Five-Year Contract Extension

NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles’ contract struggle with LeSean McCoy is over — the 23-year-old running back has agreed to a five-year contract extension, the team just announced.

McCoy had a stellar third season in Philadelphia last year, running for 1,309 yards and an NFL-best 17 touchdowns. His contract negotiations with the Eagles were long and arduous this spring, and a lengthy holdout was seen as a possibility, but now it appears McCoy and the Eagles are locked in long-term.

McCoy was the Eagles’ second-round draft pick out of the University of Pittsburgh in 2009. He’s rushed for 3,026 yards and 28 touchdowns in his three-year career to date.
