KANSAS CITY, Mo. — LeSean McCoy was released by the Buffalo Bills on Saturday afternoon.

By late Saturday night McCoy reportedly had a new home with some familiar faces.

The 31-year old running back has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal worth $3 million, but could be worth up to $4 million if all incentives are reached, per Terez Paylor of Yahoo Sports.

McCoy was drafted in 2009 by the Philadelphia Eagles while current Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid and General Manager Brettt Veach were a part of the Eagles organization.

The six-time pro bowl running back reportedly was coveted by AFC West rival Los Angles Chargers, per Terez Paylor of Yahoo Sports.

McCoy decided to accept the Chiefs offer.

The addition of McCoy will force the Chiefs to make a corresponding roster move at the time of his signing.

Kansas City’s roster is currently at full capacity with 53 active players.
