McCoy says he’s not bothered by “opinions” or perceptions
Bills running back LeSean McCoy wasn’t charged for his role in a February nightclub incident involving McCoy and some off-duty police officers, but the story made headlines.
If McCoy’s reputation took a hit from the alleged fight, he doesn’t seem to mind.
“I know what type of person I am and what I do for my community, what type of father I am,” McCoy said Saturday during a hometown charity event. “People always have their own opinions. You can’t change them. And I’m fine with that.”
The NFL has decided not to discipline McCoy for his role in the alleged February incident. He hasn’t given many -- if any -- interviews in the meantime, so his deciding to talk to Harrisburg area reporters Saturday counts as a big deal.
The Eagles traded McCoy to the Bills before the 2015 season. He’s been involved in his share of controversies over the last several seasons, but he’s said he’s not bothered by “what the media gives” people.
“If the media only paints a picture of a player as this or whatever that may be, then that’s what the people see,” McCoy said. “So I don’t really go back and forth about that.”
