LeSean McCoy Drops Major Hint That He’s Shannon Sharpe’s Replacement On FS1’s ‘Undisputed’

After nearly seven years on the debate desk, Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe signed off on Fox Sports 1’s ‘Undisputed’ program, which he co-hosted with Skip Bayless.

Sharpe’s final episode was earlier this week:

The show will celebrate it’s seven year anniversary in September. It premiered shortly after Bayless left ESPN, where he worked as a co-host on “First Take” alongside Stephen A. Smith. With Sharpe gone, rumors were swirling that former NFL star running back LeSean McCoy was among the front-runners to replace Sharpe.

In response to a tweet from Bayless, the two-time Super Bowl champion dropped a strong hint that he will indeed be replacing Sharpe.


The former Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs star is currently a host on Fox Sports 1’s Speak and has made guest appearances numerous times in Undisputed.

McCoy was a second-round draft choice (53rd overall) of the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2009. The Pittsburgh product was one of the top running backs of his era, leading the NFL in rushing (2013) and rushing TDs (2011).

McCoy won his first Super Bowl ring with the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2019 season. A year later, he captured a second championship in his swan song year with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The soon-to-be 35-year-old announced his retirement in 2021, less than a year after winning his second Super Bowl ring. McCoy retired with 11,102 rushing yards and 73 touchdowns in 170 NFL Games.
