LeSean McCoy Says Tyrod Taylor Would "Kill It" in Eagles Offense

We can talk all we want about some of the bad trades and acquisitions that Chip Kelly made, but I bet you this player he didn’t target probably keeps him up at night.

Tyrod Taylor was a free agent last offseason, desperate for a chance to show his skill set. Rather than target the former Ravens backup quarterback, Kelly traded for Sam Bradford and signed Tim Tebow.

The rest is history, but Shady McCoy believes that a player with Taylor’s skill set would “kill it” in Kelly’s offense.

“He would kill it,” Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy said according to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media.

Speaking earlier this week, Kelly was asked about Taylor, and his dynamic skill set.

“It’s a different dynamic, and it’s similar to playing — not that he’s the same player as Cam [Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton] because Cam is obviously a different body type and whatever, but when that quarterback has the ability to run, it’s different,” Kelly said. “It’s different in how you cover because now if he’s — if you play a lot of man under, two-deep man under where the defensive backs have their back turned to the quarterback and it’s third-and-10, if they’re all covered, he can tuck the ball and run for the first down.”

Taylor has 2,171 passing yards this season, 17 touchdowns and just four interceptions, while completing 64 percent of his passes.

What could have been?
