It’s safe to say LeSean McCoy is still holding a grudge against Philadelphia Eagles Coach Chip Kelly after the team traded him to the Buffalo Bills in March. In fact, he’s now accusing Kelly of being a straight-up racist.
What McCoy failed to mention: Of the six players Philadelphia took in last week’s NFL draft, five were black. Also un-noted by McCoy (but noted by Pro Football Talk): Kelly has made trollish comments about some of his white players, too, particularly Evan Mathis, the veteran guard who didn’t show up for voluntary workouts, most likely because he’s unhappy with his contract.

Later on, McCoy seemed to change his tune. “I have no hatred toward him, nothing to say negative about him,” he said.
Per ESPN, the Eagles declined to comment.
