The Facts: McCoy said during the lead-up to the Super Bowl that he had no plans to retire if he won a ring. He stuck by that plan after the Kansas City Chiefs hoisted the Lombardi trophy. The 32-year-old free-agent running back, who has 11,071 rushing yards in his 11-year career, told NFL Network on Friday that he's been in talks with a few teams to continue his playing career in 2020, but declined to name those organizations. "You talk about that number. That number's 12,000," he said of his career goal. "That's something that I've always wanted to achieve. That's big to me. Right now, I'm just talked to a couple of teams -- some of my favorite teams -- that I'd think would be a great fit for me. I won't tell you exactly."
Diehards Line:McCoy went on to explain, however, "the biggest thing is to find the right fit. Find the right fit for me. I think at the point in my career, not just playing football. I want to play for the right team. ..." McCoy averaged 4.6 yards on 101 carries with four rushing touchdowns and added 28 catches for 181 yards and a score in 13 games last season. Injuries sidelined him for part of the season, and he was active for just one playoff game in the Chiefs' run to the Super Bowl. At his age, McCoy could find a landing spot as a wily veteran who could mentor younger backs in a committee while taking on fewer totes. McCoy seems aware that he might not be an every-down back anymore, but can still play a role. So whether it's soon after training camps open or whether he has to wait until injuries pile up during the season, McCoy plans to play and get closer to that 12,000-yard mark.
