Bills Links, 8/23: LeSean McCoy trade rumors shot down

Strong opinions came out on both sides of the argument to trade the talented running back.

In addition to the trade talk, the Bills Link has plenty of other updates from Tuesday’s practice, Tyrod Taylor, and encouraging updates on Cordy Glenn and Jordan Matthews.
