The Buffalo Bills are in the midst of a rebuild centered around Josh Allen, and a couple of franchise cornerstones could be on their way out soon. For example, Buffalo can save a lot of money by cutting LeSean McCoy before June 1.

If the Bills decide to move on, here are the most likely landing spots for McCoy in free agency.

3. Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens added Mark Ingram in free agency, and signing McCoy would make for an excellent thunder-and-lightning duo. Both players are dangerous as runners and receivers, meaning defenses wouldn't be able to guess whether the Ravens are running or throwing based on who's on the field. Additionally, with Lamar Jackson at the helm, Baltimore could have one of the most dynamic running games in football if they manage to add McCoy.

2. Philadelphia Eagles

McCoy was a star when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles, and they still need more help at RB. Philadelphia added Miles Sanders in the NFL Draft, but he's more of a power runner than a pass-catching weapon. McCoy could give Philadelphia's offense a new wrinkle and he'd make for a great tandem with Jordan Howard or Sanders behind Philly's great offensive line.

1. Kansas City Chiefs

This almost makes too much sense. McCoy had some of his best seasons under Andy Reid's tutelage with the Eagles, and the Kansas City Chiefs need more depth at RB. Reid has always done a good job getting prolific seasons from running backs, and McCoy could take this backfield to the next level. He also is a weapon in the passing game, and adding McCoy could be a great way to replace Kareem Hunt's production.
