It’s going to be really interesting to see how much gas McCoy has left in the tank. Once upon a time, he was one of the best running backs in the league.
He’s still got a lot talent, but there’s no doubt he’s dropped off a ton over the past couple seasons. Of course, it’s not all his fault.
He wasn’t exactly surrounded by stars in Buffalo.
Now, he’s 100% surrounded by stars with the Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes is the defending league MVP, Travis Kelce might be the best tight end in the league and Tyreek Hill is a speed demon.
McCoy won’t be asked to do much at all for Kansas City. He won’t even be depended on much in the offense. With expectations and pressure low, he could be in for a good season.
If it doesn’t workout for him in KC, then his time in the NFL could be pretty much over. He’s on the wrong side of 30, his production has declined and this could be his last chance in the league.
Given what the Chiefs have on offense, there’s no reason for him to not do well.
