LeSean McCoy is the Eagles franchise leader in rushing, and as he approaches another Super Bowl appearance, he’s raining down high praise on the guy who shattered all his rookie records.

While appearing in a zoom call with the media at Super Bowl 55, McCoy was asked about Miles Sanders and his two years at the helm carrying the ball for the Eagles.

“I think he’ll be the next franchise back… I think Miles is really, really good. He’s a lot faster than I was. When I watch him play, I think he’s a lot faster than I was, my top speed”

Sanders broke the Eagles rookie record for yards from scrimmage in 2019, passing LeSean McCoy for the most yards rushing in a season by a rookie.

Sanders also set the Eagles rookie record for rushing yards with 818 and caught 50 passes for 509 yards.

Last season, Sanders had 867 yards rushing and 6 touchdowns, along with 197 yards receiving in 12 games played.
