Former girlfriend thinks LeSean McCoy may have 'set [her] up'

A couple days after LeSean McCoy adamantly denied allegations of domestic abuse, among other things, some more information has surfaced. 

The former girlfriend of the NFL star and former Eagle told police she thought McCoy might have “set [her] up” during the home invasion that resulted in injuries serious enough to send her to the hospital, according to an event report released by the police department in Milton, Georgia, obtained by ESPN

There was a note in the report made 10 minutes after police were called to the suburban home: "The caller poss[ibly] thinks her ex boyfriend poss[ibly] set her up."

The other very interesting part of this particular report is that McCoy’s former girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, said neighbors have cameras outside of the house. That could possibly provide some answers and eventually lead to a suspect. 

Even more information came from previous incident reports involving McCoy, Cordon and the Georgia residence, that were also released by the police department Thursday. 

This bit of a report from last July in another domestic dispute is especially interesting: 

McCoy was very concerned that Cordon may try to either take things or make false accusations about him. He stated that he was trying to be very careful about being around here given the climate of domestic abuse in his profession.

Here’s more of that report from NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo: 

Other reports came from this April and June as the ongoing saga between McCoy and Cordon continued. Both reports dealt with the removal of items from the residence. Neither involved any physical violence.

LeSean McCoy denies domestic violence allegations

LeSean McCoy is denying allegations of domestic violence, using performance-enhancing drugs and animal cruelty made against him Tuesday on Instagram.

In an Instagram post, McCoy called the allegations "totally baseless" and "completely false." He also wrote, "I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months."

Instagram user @miamor_i_adore posted a graphic before-and-after image of Delicia Cordon, McCoy's ex-girlfriend, accusing McCoy of viciously beating her, among other allegations.

@shadymccoy is THE DEVIL!!! YOU ARE AN ANIMAL!!!!!! We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog “Henny” into kidney failure. Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage ... all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using, but we will not keep quiet about this!!!!!! I can’t believe you did this to my best friend!!!!! YOUR KARMA IS GOING TO BE SO REAL!!!!!! The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!!!!!!! This was just her yesterday on the left and now this morning this is her on the right!!!! #WomanBeater #AnimalAbuser #ChildAbuser @nfl @tmz_tv @buffalobills

It appears that Cordon was involved in an incident, according to a police statement, but there's no acknowledgement that McCoy was involved. The following is a statement from the Milton Police:

On July 10, 2018 at approximately 3:18 A.M., Milton Police responded to a home invasion at a residence on Hickory Pass near the Cherokee County line. The preliminary investigation indicates that this residence was specifically targeted by the suspect or suspects, and not a random incident. When officers arrived they found one victim who had been physically assaulted by a lone intruder. During the altercation, the suspect demanded specific items from the victim. An adult female victim was treated and released at North Fulton Regional Hospital. A second adult female victim also sustained a minor injury during the incident.

The Buffalo Bills are aware of the allegations and are looking into it, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini. They've released the following statement:

"We have spoken to LeSean and have been in contact with the National Football League. We will continue to gather information."

According to TMZ Sports, McCoy recently sued Cordon in an attempt to have her removed from a home he owns in Alpharetta, Georgia. Per TMZ Sports, McCoy went to court in June and in court documents wrote, "defendant is ex-girlfriend of owner/plaintiff and refuses to leave."

This is a developing story.

Did Howie Roseman really try to trade for LeSean McCoy?

Did Howie Roseman really try to trade for LeSean McCoy?

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — The Eagles tried to steal LeSean McCoy back from the Bills after Chip Kelly’s firing, but the Bills rejected the Eagles’ trade offers, according to a story in the New York Daily News.

According to the story, Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman tried to undo Kelly’s catastrophic trade of McCoy to the Bills by offering Jordan Matthews and other unnamed players at some point after he regained control of the front office. 

Kelly traded McCoy to the Bills in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso after the 2014 season and was fired after the 2015 season. The Eagles wound up trading Matthews to the Bills anyway this past summer for cornerback Ronald Darby.

McCoy, one of the most popular players in recent Eagles history, has long been outspoken about his dislike of Kelly, who is now the head coach at UCLA. He said recently on NFL Network: “I got a lot of love for Philadelphia now that the little short coach is with the kids, where he belongs.”

McCoy is the Eagles’ all-time leading rusher with 6,792 yards in six seasons. In three years with the Bills, he has 3,300 yards. He’s made six Pro Bowls, including five in a row. He’s already one of only 14 players in NFL history with 10,000 rushing yards and 400 receptions, and his 4.6 career rushing average is second-highest of those 14 players. He’s one of just six players to reach 10,000 rushing yards and 400 catches before his 30th birthday.

McCoy’s career body of work has put him into the Hall of Fame conversation. Although his rushing average was down to a career-low 4.0 this year, he still had 1,138 rushing yards, 59 receptions and eight touchdowns.

The Eagles have been trying to figure out the running back position since McCoy’s departure after the 2014 season. They signed DeMarco Murray initially to replace McCoy, but he averaged only 3.6 yards per carry and was traded to the Titans after the 2015 season.

Ryan Mathews, who had backed up Murray in 2015, was promoted to the lead role and averaged 4.3 yards per carry in 2016 but was injured much of the season and was released after undergoing offseason neck surgery. He was out of football this past season.

This year, the Eagles got to the Super Bowl with veteran LeGarrette Blount, midseason acquisition Jay Ajayi and undrafted rookie Corey Clement. Wendell Smallwood began the season as one of the main backs but has been mainly inactive since Ajayi’s arrival. Darren Sproles has been out with an injury since Week 3 and is scheduled to be a free agent.

The one thing the Shady trade did accomplish is it helped the Eagles land Carson Wentz, since one of the picks the Eagles acquired when they traded Alonso and Byron Maxwell to the Dolphins wound up going to the Browns as part of the deal that brought the Eagles the No. 2 pick in the 2016 draft.
