As tempting as it would be to bring LeSean McCoy back for a second stint, the Philadelphia Eagles have better options at running back.

Over the last couple of weeks, one of the most popular topics of discussion surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles has been whether the team should bring LeSean McCoy back for a second stint with the team.

Just about every Eagles fan was beyond thrilled to see McCoy recently win the Super Bowl as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs since he was always considered a favorite in the City of Brotherly Love during his six years spent with the team.

But when it comes to Philadelphia doing what is best for the team moving forward, a strong case can be made the Eagles would be better off in 2020 without McCoy part of the picture.

Maybe if this situation were taking place a few years ago when McCoy was still considered a Pro Bowler, but unfortunately the last two seasons have seen the veteran’s numbers decline a bit.

Not to mention, when looking at some of the other running backs beyond Miles Sanders currently on the roster on top of the fact that McCoy will turn 32 in July, it’s easy to make the case that Philadelphia would be better off without bringing him back for another stint with the team.

With that being said, there has been some recent talk about the Eagles expressing interest in bringing another veteran running back on board for the 2020 season to help push some of the younger guys.

If this in fact the case, the good news for Philadelphia is there are still a few veteran running backs available in free agency not named McCoy that could help the offense, with these five names immediately coming to mind.
