Former Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has decided to call it a career.

The 33-year-old’s decision was confirmed on Thursday. In doing so, he made an expected decision to retire as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles:

In July, McCoy ]said that he was considering trying to play in 2021. At the time, McCoy claimed he had been in touch with a few teams, but did add that he wanted to be part of a “championship-caliber” club.

Evidently, that the not come to be and he’s hanging ’em up.

McCoy racked up 11,102 rushing yards in his career, which puts him 22nd on the all-time list.

The Bills traded for McCoy prior to the 2015 season after he spent the first six years of his career in Philadelphia. In Buffalo, McCoy amassed 3,814 of his career rushing yards, to go along with 30 total touchdowns in four seasons as a Bill.

Prior to the 2019 season, the Bills made a surprise move and cut McCoy at the end of training camp. The final two years of this career saw him play a backup role with the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, respectively.

In both of those seasons, he won Super Bowls. In addition, McCoy earned six Pro Bowl nods and two All-Pro selections in his career. He was orgianlly a second-round pick of the Eagles in 2009.

Along with retiring as a member of the Eagles, the team will honor him after the first quarter of their upcoming game in Week 4, according to NBC Sports.

In that contest, the Eagles will be hosting the Kansas City Chiefs, who are coached by Andy Reid. He formerly was a coach in Philadelphia when McCoy played there, in addition to being McCoy’s coach with the Chiefs in 2019.
