Could the Patriots be interested in free agent running back LeSean McCoy?

Listen to your team news NOW.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, four teams have shown interest in McCoy following being released by the Bills on Saturday. They are: the Chiefs, Eagles, Chargers and Patriots. The Patriots are very interesting considering they already have a very crowded backfield, but perhaps he could be viewed as an upgrade over Rex Burkhead.

In 14 games with the Bills last year he ran for 514 yards and three touchdowns, while catching 34 passes for 238 yards.

The 31-year-old hasn't exactly lived to his potential in recent years, but perhaps a change in scenery could be the best thing for him.
