Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"So, I called my agent to see exactly what was going on, and he said it was true," McCoy said in his introductory press conference Tuesday. "We talked about it and my first reaction definitely was, I was disappointed just because my team didn't really … I didn't know what was going on. I had been in Philadelphia my whole life. For the six years, it was great. But, once I sat down and relaxed, I had some thought to myself. I talked to my family and I felt it was the best move. I felt like a team actually wanted me. It was possible to make this trade go through. They want a player and a running back that's going to give them everything they have, 110 percent. So, at the end of the day, I'm happy to be here."'
