BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Bills running back LeSean McCoy has remained silent this offseason, especially after reports of a bar fight he was allegedly involved in made national headlines in February. McCoy was not charged in the incident and did not receive punishment from the NFL.
While many expected McCoy’s first comments to come at Buffalo Bills training camp, which begins Friday, he surprised many when he spoke to reporters in his hometown of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. McCoy was hosting a “Play 60” event for children.
When asked about how is perceived by the media, and the public’s opinion on him, McCoy gave a very honest answer.
“The only opinions of what people get about players is what they see on TV or what the media gives them,” the 28-year-old said. If the media only paints the picture of a player like this..then that is what they would expect them to be.
I don’t really go back and fourth about that. I know what kind of person I am, what I do for my community, the kind of father I am. So, people always have their own opinions and you can’t change them and I am fine with that.”
McCoy scored three touchdowns for the Bills in the 2015 season.
