McCoy Ready To Get Back To Work

Running back LeSean McCoy didn't even make it to the staircase that takes you from the NovaCare Complex parking lot to the front door before being swarmed by the media.

The third-year running back is looking to build upon his breakout sophomore campaign, one in which he led all NFL running backs with 78 catches. McCoy also rushed for 1,080 yards, averaged 5.2 yards per carry - good for second in the league and scored seven total touchdowns.

"I'm definitely excited. I can't wait to get back to work," said McCoy, who added that he spent time Monday catching up with a lot of coaches. "It's been a long wait, a long wait. I'm definitely happy it turned out in a positive way."

McCoy was one of the many Eagles players who took part in the offseason workouts that the players conducted on their own. On Wednesday, the Eagles report to training camp at Lehigh University where practices will be very different than in past years with the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. There will be no more two-a-day practices, which is something that McCoy jokingly said he will miss.

But as for how the new rules will impact the team moving forward, McCoy is just as unsure as the fans are.

"I'm new to this like you guys are," McCoy said.
