Running Back LeSean McCoy To Report To Bills Training Camp Following Assault Denial
LeSean McCoy will be reporting to the Buffalo Bills’ training camp on Wednesday, his first appearance with the team since he was accused of beating Delicia Cordon and their dog via a post by Cordon’s friend on social media. McCoy has since denied all accusations, although Cordon recently said that she believes the home invasion and assault to be a “set up” instigated by McCoy.
Police are continuing on with the investigation into the home invasion but have yet to name a suspect.
While McCoy is no longer being accused of having assaulted Cordon himself, she claims that he still had something to do with her Atlanta home being robbed. During her July 10 911 call, Cordon said, “I really feel like, because we’re breaking up, that he wants all his jewelry back…[The intruder] just kept asking for jewelry. I think it has something to do with my ex-boyfriend.”
With his status with the NFL unchanged and an absence of legal repercussions, McCoy has been cleared to attend Bills training camp. The 30-year-old running back was an instrumental part in Buffalo’s 2017-18 postseason appearance, which ended the NFL’s longest current playoff drought up until that point. The team is currently entering rebuild mode, though, as they have traded away quarterback Tyrod Taylor and are projected to have career backup AJ McCarron as their Week 1 starter.
The big story for Buffalo’s 2018 season, though, is the development of the seventh overall pick in the 2018 draft, quarterback Josh Allen. McCoy’s ability to return to Bills camp will be largely beneficial to Allen’s progression into a franchise quarterback, as he’s both a Pro-Bowler and a longtime veteran of the NFL, the perfect candidate to help out a raw young QB.
