Is LeSean McCoy prepared for some heavy lifting?
After a solid first season, running back LeSean McCoy dedicated himself to the team's offseason conditioning program and is more fit and stronger than he has ever been. He will need the coat of armor. McCoy is going to carry the ball 15-20 times a game and he will be used in the passing game. He has a lot riding on his shoulders.
McCoy is extremely talented and his skill set fits in well with the offense. He and Mike Bell are an interesting combination in the backfield, and the Eagles would love to establish McCoy right away. He was a workhorse at the University of Pittsburgh and he is going to have a lot of work to do this season.
