The Pro Bowl running back set a franchise record with 20 total touchdowns last season, and he's scheduled to make just $615,000 in the final year of his rookie deal.
McCoy has clearly earned a raise and long-term extension to boot, but will the Eagles give it to him?
Brian Westbrook, Philly's previous star rusher, took to Twitter on Wednesday to make the case for his good friend.
Like Arian Foster? I think he is definitely if not the best, at least the second best back in the league right now and deserves it #payMccoyâ Brian Westbrook (@36westbrook) April 12, 2012
The bigger question is what exactly is the value of a top running back in today's NFL? The Minnesota Vikings rewarded Adrian Peterson with a massive $96 million deal last September, and are now holding their breath, hoping he returns to form after an awful knee injury.
Peterson is in that top tier of special players, but McCoy is producing at such a level that he can argue he deserves a pay grade above the likes of Arian Foster (five years, $43.5M) and Chris Johnson (six years, $55M).
With the gulf between Peterson and every other back so wide, it leaves plenty of room to debate where McCoy fits in.
