Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had some kind words for Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin on Wednesday. 

“I just want to say, I think Doug Martin is a heck of a running back,” McCoy told reporters. "He’s one of the better backs in the NFL for sure."

And what about Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno? Well, it would seem McCoy still thinks he "sucks." 

On Sunday, the NFL's leading rusher dissed the Broncos back while responding to a tweet from ESPN's Skip Bayless, who was praising Moreno's performance against the Dallas Cowboys.


When asked on Wednesday about the tweet, McCoy said he did not have any regrets.

“I don’t want to talk about the past,” he said. “It is what it is. But what I said is what I meant.”

McCoy and Moreno were both drafted in 2009. The Broncos took Moreno with the 12th pick and the Eagles picked up Shady in the second round, 53rd overall.
