[Almost] On To The Next One: LeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy often goes by his nickname Shady McCoy.  The following story is one that could be referred to as kind of shady.  Apparently, McCoy fired his agent Drew Rosenhaus last week only to re-hire him 1 day later.  McCoy filed the NFLPA paperwork and all to officially terminate his relationship with Rosenhaus, but rescinded that request within about 24 hours.

McCoy supposedly filed the termination letter with the NFLPA immediately after Rosenhaus took him out to eat at Chickie & Pete’s.  We are talking about a Zagat rated top spot and Maxim named “Greatest American Neighborhood Bar.”  I doubt it was the food that turned McCoy off.  But McCoy will not say why he terminated Rosenhaus or why he decided to re-hire Rosenhaus immediately thereafter.
