The Facts: McCoy created a stir on social media with a tweet that "Buffalo was so special . . . thanks for everything." Many are saying that this is a farewell from McCoy, which in turn means that McCoy has been cut. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, McCoy hasn't been cut.
Diehards Line: According to PFT's Mike Florio, the message relates to an appearance (specifically, an autograph signing) that occurred in Buffalo on Saturday. ... All this comes in the context of McCoy heading into the 2017 season with a salary of $6 million and a cap number of $8.875 million. As Florio notes, those numbers have sparked speculation that the next coaching staff may decide to move on from him. Cutting him would result in a cap charge of $7.875 million; that amount could be spread over two years with a post-June 1 release. In addition, new OC Rick Dennison uses a system that employs one-cut zone running (last year, McCoy thrived once Anthony Lynn became the offensive coordinator, installing running plays that gave McCoy options to hit an inside hole or bounce outside). "So, while Sunday’s tweet isn’t a goodbye" Florio summed up, "there’s still a chance that farewell is coming. If it happens, plenty of other teams will be line up to give McCoy an enthusiastic hello." Stay tuned.
