Bills RB LeSean McCoy Talks About Being Traded

TRANSCRIPT

HE'S LeSEAN McCOY ON "THE RICH
EISEN SHOW."
HOW ARE YOU?
>> RICH EISEN, MY MAN, HOW ARE
YOU?
>> HOW YOU?
YOU TELL ME.
>> I'M GOOD.
I'M HAPPY.
I JUST GOT DONE WORKING OUT AND
I'M EXCITED TO BE A BUFFALO
BILL.
>> WHERE ARE YOU?
WHERE HAVE I FOUND YOU?
>> MIAMI.
>> ALL RIGHT.
SO YOU'RE IN SOUTH FLORIDA.
WORKING OUT.
OKAY, WORKING OUT.
GETTING READY TO GO TO WESTERN
NEW YORK WHERE HOPEFULLY IT WILL
BE HALF THE DEGREES WHERE IT
CURRENTLY IS BY THE TIME YOU GET
THERE IN APRIL, RIGHT?
>> FOR SURE.
>> HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT
THE TRADE?
HOW DID YOU GET INFORMED OF IT?
>> IT WAS CRAZY BECAUSE I HAD NO
IDEA.
THIS WAS -- I WAS AS SHOCKED AS
THE REST OF THE WORLD.
I WAS SHOCKED MYSELF.
AND, YOU KNOW, I LOOKED AT MY
PHONE.
I WOKE UP, AND I HAD A MILLION
TEXT MESSAGES FROM FRIENDS AND
FAMILY SAYING I GOT TRADED.
I WAS LIKE TRADED?
MY AGENT CALLED ME AND THEY SAID
THEY'RE TRYING TO TRADE ME FOR A
LINEBACKER IN BUFFALO.
>> HOW DID THAT HIT YOU?
>> I DIDN'T KNOW THE PLAYER WAS
THEY WERE TRADING ME FOR AND I
WAS SHOCKED.
WHAT?
TRADED?
YOU KNOW, SO I THINK IT WORKED
OUT FOR MYSELF.
>> SURE.
NO DOUBT.
YOU KNOW, BUT LT, LaDAINIAN
TOMLINSON CAME ON THE SHOW, HE
SAID HE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH
YOU, WHERE YOU WERE ALREADY
SENSING THINGS WEREN'T GOING
VERY WELL BETWEEN YOU AND THE
COACH.
THAT'S WHAT HE WAS SAYING.
>> SEE, THE THING WAS WHEN I
TALKED TO LT, HE'S A GUY THAT'S
BEEN IN MY SHOES FARCE -- AS FAR
AS BEING ON A TEAM SO LONG AND
THEN NOT SEEING EYE TO EYE.
MAYBE POTENTIALLY HAVE TO LEAVE.
BUT MY REACTIONS TO WHAT LT IS
TALKING ABOUT IS I WASN'T SURE
ABOUT GETTING TRADED.
THAT WAS MORE THAN THE LAST
THING I WAS THINKING.
I DIDN'T KNOW HOW THE NUMBERS
THING WORKED OUT.
I KNOW THEY OWED ME 10 OR
$11 MILLION.
I DON'T ME IF THEY HAD TO
RESTRUCTURE IT TO GET MORE ROOM
FOR OTHER PLAYERS.
I DIDN'T KNOW.
I DIDN'T THINK THAT TRADE WOULD
BE THE --
THAT'S WHAT LT IS PROBABLY
TALKING ABOUT.
>> SURE.
BEFORE WE TURN THE PAGE TO GET
TO BUFFALO, THE FACT THAT YOU
ARE -- WERE SENT DOWN TO
PHILADELPHIA, AND DOLLARS AND
CENTS HAD A LOT TO DO WITH IT.
AND THEN THEY GO AHEAD AND SIGN
DeMARCO MURRAY, NOT AS MUCH
GUARANTEED DOLLARS AS YOU'RE
GETTING AT BUFFALO, BUT A
CONSIDERABLE CHUNK OF CHANGE.
DID THAT MAKE YOU SCRATCH YOUR
HEAD AND SAY, HOW COME THE MONEY
IS THERE FOR HIM AND I GOT SENT
TO BUFFALO, DID THAT HIT YOU?
>> YEAH, I'LL TALK ABOUT THAT A
LITTLE BIT.
I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IT.
I SHOULD SAY THAT.
YOU KNOW, CHIP I THINK HE'S A
REALLY GOOD COACH.
I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING
DIFFERENT FOR HIM.
KIND OF MANAGING BOTH FROM BEING
A COACH TO NOW KIND OF MANAGING
THE TEAM AS FAR AS THE PLAYERS
THAT THEY GET AND THEY PAY.
SO I HAVE SEEN THAT THEY WERE
ORIGINALLY TRYING TO GET FRANK
GORE AND HE BACKED OUT AND THEN
THEY GOT DeMARCO AND RYAN
MATHEWS, AND SO I GUESS IT WAS
THE WAY THAT -- TO MAKE IT
RIGHT.
I DON'T KNOW.
I CAN'T REALLY ANSWER.
I MEAN, TOOK TWO BACKS TO
REPLACE ONE.
I THINK DeMARCO IS A HELL OF A
BACK AND I THINK HE'LL DO A GOOD
JOB THERE.
YOU KNOW, SO I'M NOT SURE HOW
THAT WENT.
BUT IT WHAT IT IS.
>> I KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING
WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE RUNNING
GAME RIGHT NOW.
YOU'RE THE LEADING RUSHER TWO
YEARS AGO, AND DeMARCO THE
LEADING RUSHER LAST YEAR.
DALLAS LET HIM WALK TO
PHILADELPHIA WHO LET YOU GO.
WHERE'S THE VALUE OF THE RUNNING
BACK?
>> I THINK THERE'S STILL VALUE.
JUST LOOK AT -- YOU KNOW, SOME
OF THE TOP RUNNING BACKS.
I MEAN, FROM DeMARCO, HE HAD A
BIG DEAL.
RUNNING BACKS -- ALL THE RUNNING
BACKS AREN'T GETTING PAID LIKE
THAT.
I GOT A NICE DEAL.
CHARLES.
LOOK AT LYNCH, HE'S GOT A BIG
DEAL AS A RUNNING BACK.
>> RIGHT.
>> A.P.
I MEAN, HE'S GOING TO GET A BIG
ONE.
YOU HAVE TO BREAK IT DOWN LOOK
AT THE RUNNING BACKS AT THE TOP
OF THE MARKET.
I MEAN, THEY'RE REALLY -- YOU
KNOW, PUTTING SOME NUMBERS UP
CONTRACT WISE.
SO KIND OF RULES US OUT, KIND OF
TOUGH, I THINK.
ALSO PRODUCTION WISE.
LOOK AT ALL THAT, COMPARED TO
THE NUMBERS THAT WE'RE GETTING
PAID.
I MEAN, I DON'T KNOW -- PAYING
11 OR $12 MILLION AS A RUNNING
BACK POSITION.
I MEAN, THAT SPEAKS VOLUMES.
>> LeSEAN McCOY HERE ON "THE
RICH EISEN SHOW."
WHAT DID REX RYAN TELL YOU WHEN
YOU WERE ALL SIGNED, SEALED AND
DELIVERED AND IT WAS TIME TO
BEGIN TO FOCUS ON THE FUTURE,
WHAT DID REX RYAN YOUR NEW COACH
TELL YOU?
>> I LOVE REX.
I LOVE HIS ATTITUDE.
WHAT'S FUNNY ABOUT REX, BEFORE I
EVEN -- YOU KNOW, KNEW I WAS
GOING TO BUFFALO, I WAS A FAN OF
REX RYAN.
JUST THE WAY HE TREATS HIS
PLAYERS.
HIS ATTITUDE.
HE HAS FUN WITH THE MEDIA.
SO HE TOLD ME THAT WE'LL HAVE A
GREAT DEFENSE, WE'LL GET SOME
PIECES ON OFFENSE TO BUILD IT UP
STRONG.
YOU KNOW, THIS IS ONE OF THE
POSITIONS YOU WANT BECAUSE OF
THE TALENT THAT THEY HAVE THERE
IN BUFFALO.
>> AND WHAT CAN YOU TELL BILL'S
FANS WHAT THE OFFENSE IS GOING
TO LOOK LIKE AND WHO MIGHT BE
THE QUARTERBACK?
DO YOU HAVE ANY INKLING ON THAT
FRONT RIGHT NOW, LeSEAN?
>> I'M NOT SURE.
I KNOW THAT CASSEL AND THEN
E.J., THE KID FROM FLORIDA
STATE.
I'M NOT SURE HOW THAT WORKS OUT.
CASSEL IS A PROVEN VET, A HELL
OF A PLAYER, SO WE'LL FIND OUT.
YOU HAVE PERCY.
AND THEN CLAY.
SO WE HAVE A NICE LITTLE LINEUP.
THEN THEY HAVE ONLY GUYS THERE,
I'M A BIG FAN OF WATKINS.
EVEN FROM COLLEGE.
SO I SEE A LOT OF SPEED OUT
THERE.
REMINDS ME OF THAT OLD TIME
PLAYING WITH MACLIN AND DeSEAN.
>> LeSEAN, I HAVE A PHILLY FAN
RIGHT HERE ON THE SET, MY
PRODUCER CHRIS LAW.
I THINK HE NEEDS CLOSURE, I
THINK HE NEEDS HELP AND I THINK
HE JUST NEEDS A LITTLE BIT OF --
TO BE PUT AT EASE.
I'LL LET HIM ASK YOU QUESTION,
IF THAT'S OKAY.
>> I'M ALWAYS HONEST.
>> I KNOW THAT.
>> DEFINITELY UNSTABLE IN THE
DAYS AFTER THE TRADE, LeSEAN.
SAD TO SEE YOU GO.
COUPLE QUESTIONS, HAVE YOU
TALKED TO BRYCE BROWNER AT ALL?
OBVIOUSLY HE WAS IN THE LOCKER
ROOM WITH YOU AT PHILLY.
HE WAS TRADED TO THE BILLS AND
ARE YOU EXCITED TO BE IN GREG
ROMAN'S OFFENSE?
FRANK GORE, FOUR STRAIGHT 1,000
SEASONS FOR HIM.
>> I'LL ANSWER THE SECOND ONE
FIRST, THAT'S A BETTER ONE.
I CALLED FRANK UP, HE WAS THE
FIRST PERSON -- SECOND PERSON I
CALLED.
I CALLED MIKE FIRST.
MIKE TO SEE HOW --
AND THEN I CALLED FRANK.
HE SAID HE'S EXCELLENT.
HE RUNS A LOT OF DIFFERENT
FORMATIONS.
HE MAKES THE TEAM PREPARE.
FOR THE RUNNING GAME.
SO I WAS DEFINITELY PSYCHED.
AND THEY'RE ACTUALLY NOT --
KNOWING GREG AS A PLAYER, THE
THINGS HE DOES IN THE RUNNING
GAME I'LL TRY TO BE PART OF IT.
BRYCE BROWN, ANOTHER GOOD FRIEND
OF MINE.
I HAVEN'T TALKED TO HIM SINCE HE
LEFT.
HE'S -- MAYBE TEXT MESSAGE
THROUGH THE SEASON BUT I HAVEN'T
TALKED ABOUT BEING IN BUFFALO
MYSELF.
>> WOULD YOU MIND SHARING WHAT
VICK TOLD YOU ABOUT REX?
>> NO, HE SAID REX IS EXCELLENT.
HE WANTS TO WIN.
HE'S 110% BEHIND THE PLAYERS.
HE HAS THAT TYPE OF ATTITUDE.
HE WANTS TO GO OUT AND PLAY.
EVERY WEEK, LIKE THE PLAYERS DO.
SO THAT WAS GREAT TO HEAR.
AND EVERYBODY -- I TALKED TO
ABOUT, REX, IT'S ALWAYS
POSITIVE.
>> THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME
DRAMATIC GAMES ON THE SCHEDULE
NEXT YEAR, CERTAINLY WHEN REX
GOES BACK TO THE JETS.
JETS GO VISIT HIM AND THEN
ANOTHER ROAD GAME ON THE
SCHEDULE IN PHILADELPHIA.
LeSEAN --
>> MAN.
>> WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT'S
GOING TO BE LIKE?
>> YOU KNOW, I WASN'T BIG ON THE
GAME.
I'M GOING TO PLAY WELL BECAUSE
I'LL GO HOME -- IT'S AN NFL
GAME.
I'M MORE EXCITED TO SEE HOW THE
FANS WILL KIND OF REACT TO ME
BEING BACK.
YOU KNOW, A LOT OF DIFFERENT
PLAYERS HAVE COME AND GONE AND
THEY HAVE KIND OF --
I'VE BEEN GOOD TO THE FANS AND
GOOD TO THE CITY OF
PHILADELPHIA.
>> IT WILL BE A SPECTACLE.
>> WE'LL SEE HOW IT HAPPENS.
>> YOU WERE THERE THE NIGHT THAT
ANDY REID CAME BACK.
IF THEY CHEERED FOR HIM.
>> YEAH.
>> I THINK YOU'LL GET A VERY
NICE WELCOME.
THAT SAID --
>> I HOPE.
I'LL SEE.
WE'LL FIND OUT.
>> OKAY.
NOW, WE NOTICED ON YOUR TWITTER
ACCOUNT, LeSEAN, BECAUSE YOU
HAVE COME ON THE SHOW BEFORE AND
TRIED TO HELP WITH MY 40 YARD
DASH AND YOU SAW HOW WELL THAT
WORKED OUT.
>> RIGHT.
>> LET ME HELP YOU.
ON YOUR TWITTER ACCOUNT YOU'RE
CALLED THE RUNNING BACK OF THE
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES.
ARE YOU AWARE OF THAT?
>> YOU KNOW WHAT, I HAVE TO FIRE
SOMEBODY ON MY TEAM.
THEY DIDN'T CHANGE THAT YET.
>> YEAH.
WE HAVE TO BUTTON THIS UP,
LeSEAN.
>> YOU'RE RIGHT.
MY MANAGEMENT TEAM, I OUGHT TO
FIRE THEM.
IT SHOULD SAY BUFFALO BILLS,
RUNNING BACK.
>> SHOULDN'T ROSENHAUS HAVE
SOMEBODY ON THIS?
>> I HAVE TO CALL JULIAN.
HE WAS LAID WITH THE TRADE, LATE
WITH THIS.
OR AT LEAST TAKE A PERCENTAGE
OFF THE AGENCY.
>> THAT WOULD BE A PRICE --
THAT'S A PRICEY TWITTER HANDLE
FOR SURE.
ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION TO THE
MARCH MADNESS STUFF, ARE YOU
LOCKED IN ON IT?
>> I AM.
I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO PLAY MY
BRACKET.
BUT BEFORE THIS YEAR I HAVE
ALWAYS BEEN A KENTUCKY FAN.
SO CALIPARI, I'M A BIG FAN OF
HIS FOR SURE.
>> DO YOU THINK THEY'LL DO IT?
>> OH, YEAH.
I MEAN -- THEY HAVE A DEEP
BENCH.
THEY PLAY GREAT DEFENSE.
THAT'S ALL YOU REALLY NEED.
>> HEY, LeSEAN, THANKS FOR
CHIMING IN, WE'D LOVE TO SEE YOU
IF YOU'RE OUT HERE IN LOS
ANGELES.
WE HAVE A NICE STUDIO HERE.
IN THE MEANTIME, THANKS FOR
CALLING IN AND I APPRECIATE IT.
>> I'LL COME IN.
I'LL COME IN FOR SURE.
>> PLEASE DO.
>> AND VICE VERSA.
THANK YOU FOR -- THANK YOU FOR
CALLING IN.
YOU'RE THE MAN.
>> YEP YEP.
>> THAT'S @CUT ON DIME 25,
