Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is in the market for a new agent after he fired Drew Rosenhaus last week, a source close to the situation confirmed Sunday.

The story was first reported by NFL Network.

McCoy, who could be in line for a contract extension in the near future, filed papers with the NFL Players Association ending his relationship with Rosenhaus. The third-year tailback initiated the same process last month only to rescind the notice a few days later.

There is a five-day window in which players have to rescind the termination papers, so McCoy could still retain Rosenhaus.

McCoy declined comment, saying in a text message that he was focusing on Monday night’s game against the Bears.

Rosenhaus also represents Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who has made it no secret that he wants an extension. The likely conflict of interest had something to do with McCoy dumping the agent.
