McCoy: "I never called Chip a racist"
|McCoy in better times ...|
To backtrack McCoy implied race was a factor after he was shipped to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso.
McCoy told ESPN The Magazine there was a reason Kelly "got rid of all the black players - the good ones - like that."
McCoy tried to back away from those strong comments Sunday in an interview with Hannah Storm.
“Well that’s how I felt," McCoy said. "And everybody was so quick to say I called him a racist. I never called him a racist. And I have no issue with Chip. I have no hatred towards him."
Kelly said he reached out to McCoy on multiple occasions to discuss the matter but was rebuffed.
McCoy wasn't real clear when asked again by Storm if race was a factor in the trade.
