One day after it was reported that the Buffalo Bills had agreed to terms with running back J.D. McKissic, the pass-catching running back has decided to return to his former team.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, McKissic will sign with the Washington Commanders for the same contract he had agreed to with Buffalo, which was a two-year deal worth $7 million.
Schefter provided clarification for the reasoning in the change of heart from McKissic by stating at the time he agreed to the deal with the Bills, Washington had yet to offer a contract. However, the Commanders agreed to match and McKissic didn’t want to leave.
This is now the second time during the legal tampering period this offseason that a player has reportedly agreed to terms but then elected to join another franchise. The other player was Randy Gregory, who reportedly agreed to a contract with the Dallas Cowboys but instead signed with the Denver Broncos.
