Ann Posted June 28, 2021 Share Posted June 28, 2021 As we sit around in the dead time of the off-season, a lot of articles are being written to fill space, and produce discussion. Bleacher Report has an article out, Ranking the 7 Worst NFL Offseason Trades Since 2000, where they list this beauty at #3: 3. Chip Kelly Sends McCoy to Buffalo Shortly after becoming Philadelphia's head of football operations in 2015, Chip Kelly made a bizarre decision. Hindsight does the former Eagles head coach no favors, either. Kelly sent All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso. McCoy had 3,620 scrimmage yards in the prior two years; Alonso, who Kelly coached at Oregon, had missed the previous season with an ACL injury. McCoy played three seasons with the Bills and helped the organization snap an 18-year postseason drought. Alonso didn't win a starting job in Philly, reinjured his knee and went to the Miami Dolphins in a trade the following offseason. And the Eagles fired Kelly in December 2015. </snip> Philly's loss was Buffalo's gain!There have been some pretty lopsided trades in NFL history.
