LeSean McCoy contract soon to be re-structured, per report

The Buffalo Bills' new running back, LeSean McCoy, is reportedly on the verge of agreeing to a re-structured contract with his new team - one that will likely involve more guaranteed money for the player, and a smaller cap number for the team.

Mike Garafolo of is reporting that the Buffalo Bills and recently-acquired tailback LeSean McCoy are closing in on a new contract for the 26-year-old runner.

When reports first emerged that the Bills had acquired McCoy from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso, word surfaced that McCoy was upset by the move, and that he would not make finalizing the trade easy for either side. But when further reports indicated that the Bills want to re-structure McCoy's contract, that rhetoric quickly subsided.

If and when the two sides agree to a new contract, we'll update this post with the parameters - which will likely include more guaranteed money for McCoy, and ideally a lower 2015 cap number for the Bills. In the meantime, feel free to speculate on what the re-structured deal might entail; we did exactly that earlier this week.
