LeSean McCoy confident he can bring Maclin to Bills

It's only been a few days since Jeremy Maclin's surprise release from the Kansas City Chiefs and he's already being recruited by an old teammate.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy expressed at his charity softball game Sunday morning that he wants to be reunited with his friend.

"I know he could help us out tremendously," McCoy told ESPN. "I've been doing my recruiting already, and don't be surprised if it happens."

He said that he was the first person Maclin reached out to after being cut. Both Maclin and McCoy were drafted by the Eagles in 2009 and played in Philadelphia through 2014. Maclin would be an immediate boost for the Bills' target-needy offense.

"That would be cool to have another weapon on the offense," McCoy said. "But you never know. A lot of things would have to work out for that to happen. You know how the business goes."

The Bills have $12.6 million in salary cap space, according to Maclin would be great insurance for injury-prone wideout Sammy Watkins and would also be a great mentor for rookie wide receiver Zay Jones. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor would love to add a veteran target to the roster.

"Would love to have a guy like him on our team competing and coming out and making plays for us," Taylor said. "Especially means a lot to our wide receiver room, putting another veteran guy with a whole bunch of talent and still potential left to reach his best. I would love to have him."
