The six-time Pro Bowler has over 11,000 yards rushing on his resume and has been a part of two Super Bowl championship teams. McCoy's search for the ideal circumstance on the right team continues two weeks before clubs report for training camp, following some consideration about retirement.
I've had some talks to my agent Drew Rosenahaus. I was contemplating retirement. I've had some teams reach out. I think right now it's just all about being in shape, being ready for the call and also the right road, the right fit," McCoy told NFL Network's MJ Acosta Tuesday on NFL Total Access.
"I want to go to a team where I can compete. I want to go to a team where I can contribute. And make a playoff, hopefully championship run. That's the biggest thing, I think from winning two championships it's hard to go to a team where you don't see anything happening. That's something that I think about winding my career down and I'm about to finish out. I want to go somewhere so I can have some fun and win."
As Alexander points out, McCoy is joined by Adrian Peterson and Frank Gore as free agent running backs with long and illustrious careers hoping for one final push.
Will McCoy and these other storied runners make it onto rosters anytime soon, if at all? We'll have to wait and see. McCoy, on the other hand, is seeking for a job and has a wonderful resume, a desire to be a leader and teacher, and, if nothing else, some unbelievably good luck during the last two seasons.
