The 33-year-old walks away as the Eagles’ all-time leading rusher (6,792 yards) after six seasons with the organization. He made six Pro Bowls and earned two All-Pro nods, and his 11,102 career rushing yards are the third-most ever for a player selected in the second round of the draft, per Pro Football Reference.

LeSean McCoy signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ahead of the 2020 season as they loaded up upon adding Tom Brady. Not surprisingly, he was used sparingly in a backfield that already included Ronald Jones II and subsequently added Leonard Fournette.

He logged just 10 carries, running for 31 yards. He also caught 15 passes for 101 yards.

Through his first 10 years, McCoy had 2,821 total touches, the 17th-most in NFL history, per Pro Football Reference. All of the hits he absorbed over that period seem to be adding up for the 5’11”, 210-pound ball-carrier.
