LeSean McCoy was born July 12, 1988.

McCoy was drafted out of Pittsburgh by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round (53rd overall) in 2009.

After running back Brian Westbrook went down with an ankle injury, McCoy became the starter and rushed for 637 yards as a rookie.

In the following season, McCoy broke 1,000 yards rushing and helped guide the Eagles to the playoffs.

During the 2011 season, McCoy rushed for 1,309 yards, and scored a league-best (17) rushing touchdowns. He was elected first team All-Pro.

Plagued by injury, McCoy was unable to break 1,000 yards in 2012.

In 2013, Shady's best year as a pro, he lead the league in rushing yards (1,607), and all-purpose yards (2,146).

Although he was unable to replicate his incredible year, McCoy became the Eagles all-time leading rusher in 2014.

In March 2015, McCoy was traded to Buffalo in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso.
