LeSean McCoy traded to Buffalo? -ESPN

A source close to McCoy told ESPN's Josina Anderson that the veteran running back is not pleased with the move.

"He's a Pennsylvania kid. He's never played football outside of Pennsylvania -- high school, college, pro," the source said. "So of course he's not happy."

A year ago, you might remember the Bills trading for Bryce Brown and LeSean McCoy having something to say about that.

In more Eagles news, CB Cary Williams gets cut -NFL

Immediately following his release, Williams appeared on WPEN-FM Philadelphia where he said the team did not even offer him the chance to restructure his salary.

49ers play rugby- sign Jarryd Hayne -Seattle Seahawks

The 27-year-old Hayne, who was honored with the NRL's equivalent to the NFL's Most Valuable Player award for the second time this past season, projects as a running back and return man in the NFL. He thanked the Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions for their interest before revealing he had agreed to terms on a deal with the Niners, a decision that Hayne said came easy after he had an hour-long visit with first-year San Francisco head coach Jim Tomsula at the team's Santa Clara headquarters.
