NFL players react to McCoy-Alonso trade on Twitter

The blockbuster trade made by the Eagles and Bills which sent LeSean McCoy to Buffalo and Kiko Alonso to Philadelphia was not only a huge story for its on-field repercussions, but also for the NFL players who watched it happen with wide eyes and quick-typing Twitter fingers. Players current and former took to Twitter to react to the madness. We've captured some of that below.

Oregon jokes:

Come on, guys. That's just two different versions of the same joke. You can do better.

Players happy they won't have to face LeSean McCoy anymore:

Hooray for knees and ankles in Washington, Dallas and New York.

Current and former Eagles are very confused by what is happening:

Seems like things are going great in Philly!

Running back thoughts:

Ryan Clark's got a point.

Let's sell Buffalo!

Canadians are incredibly nice people. Good call, Takeo Spikes.

Thoughts on Chip Kelly, anyone?

Here's hoping Sean Penn doesn't take a trip to Philly, I guess?

Will someone, ANYONE, please say something about the Kiko Alonso part of this deal?

Thank you, Kyle Long.
