In a move that sounds a lot like when Philadelphia released Desean Jackson, the Eagles now agreed to trade away their top offensive threat, LeSean McCoy, according to sources.
McCoy will reportedly be shipped off to Buffalo in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso, who is coming off a torn ACL.
Alonso played for Eagles head coach Chip Kelly at Oregon. Both are entering their third year in the NFL.
This is yet another shocking move the Eagles have made since Kelly has taken the reigns in Philadelphia. Kelly runs a fast paced offense, where certain players don't fit his system. McCoy however seemed to fit in just fine as he finished last season with 1, 319, third most in the NFL last season.
With the 24-17 win over rival Vanderbilt yesterday, the Tennessee Vols football team is heading to its first bowl since 2010.
It wasn't pretty, but the Vols did enough to finish the regular season with a 6-6 record. It has been an up and down season for Tennessee, but the Vols finished strong enough to reach the postseason.
After a 10-9 loss to the struggling Florida Gators earlier in the season, the Vols hit their low point. The team bounced back with an easy 45-10 win over Chattanooga. Then Tennessee went to Oxford, Mississippi and got blown out by Ole Miss 34-3. With Alabama looming as the next game, the Vols played well at times and played a competitive game in a 34-20 losing effort to the Tide. A lot of teams would have crumbled, but not the Vols led by Butch Jones. Tennessee kept fighting and it's resilience is what enabled the big orange to finish the regular season on a positive note.
The Vols finished the season, winning three of four games, including a thrilling 45-42 overtime win in Columbia against South Carolina.
Finishing at .500 may not seem like a great season, but for this Vols team, it is a step in the right direction. At the beginning of the year, I was hoping for a seven win season. However, I said i would be happy with a bowl birth. I still feel that way.
