LeSean McCoy doesn’t want the Philadelphia Eagles to mortgage their future chasing a quarterback they may or may not win a championship.
McCoy is a huge supporter of Nick Foles, and has spoken out on several occasions about Foles being the leader of the Eagles.
Speaking on NFL Network, the Eagles running back said he is a fan of Marcus Mariota, but doesn’t want Chip Kelly to trade several first-round picks to acquire him.
“I’m not sure. Because the thing is, we want to win now,” McCoy said of the team potentially drafting Mariota. “I think we have the right players in the locker room to win. (Mariota is) a good quarterback, but I think we have a good quarterback.”
Foles’ disappointing season, where he threw only 13 touchdowns to 10 interceptions, has led to plenty of speculation that head coach Chip Kelly will do whatever it takes to land Mariota in the upcoming draft.
