Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Yes, McCoy is 29 years old, but he certainly doesn't look it. Of all the players on the Bills' roster, McCoy may have the most value in a trade.

Just because you're the route-runner, you're the receiver, don't think a lot of times you have to avoid the confrontation. When you play, you've got to play with aggression, you've got to be physical, you've got to be willing to put your hands on them, too.' That was something different.'

Even, in announcing his retirement, he made it clear how much the tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia bothered him.'
