Philadelphia Eagles star running back LeSean McCoy, who was recently named as the 5th best player on the NFL Top 100 list, turned 26 today on Saturday, July 12, 2014. Happy Birthday, Shady.

In honor of McCoy's birthday, I thought it would be an appropriate time to bring up this ESPN chart regarding the age of running backs (and receivers).

But enough talk about numbers. Let's check in how Shady is enjoying his much-advertised birthday bash featuring Nelly, some current Eagles teammates, and former teammate DeSean Jackson. One of the events taking place is a basketball game. More info at
