After just two games, Buffalo Bills are back to being an NFL doormat
LeSean McCoys ex-girlfriend speaks out about assault claims: Every day I live my life in fear
Delicia Cordon, the ex-girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, reiterated in a news conference Friday that she believes McCoy was involved in an assault and robbery against her in July.

The LeSean McCoy that I know behind closed doors is different than the LeSean McCoy in front of the cameras,” Cordon said. “This attack was about the jewelry that LeSean expressed he wanted back from me weeks before the attack.

Cordon also announced that she would be doubling the reward offered Thursday for any information related to the case, with the amount now sitting at $40,000.

An assailant allegedly broke into a Georgia home owned by McCoy on July 10, brandishing a pistol and demanding specific items of jewelry. According to a 14-page complaint Cordon filed in the State Court of Fulton County in August against McCoy, the jewelry was worth $133,000.

Every day I live my life in fear, not knowing if Im walking past the man who savagely attacked me, Cordon said. It is unfair that I have to be afraid to do normal things like grocery shop. I have panic attacks. I cant sleep at night, I cant. I dont feel comfort protecting my children. I have my daughter sleep in the bed with me every night. LeSean said that he was going to deal with all of this after his season. I dont have that option. I have to deal with this every day.

Hes not helping. Hes not giving up any information with the security cameras that we have asked. He simply is – I dont know. I dont know what hes doing. I am afraid for my children. I am afraid that the intruder will attempt to take the remaining items that were demanded, but did not collect.

Tanya Mitchell Graham, Cordons attorney, said that the NFL, which announced shortly after the assault became public that it would be investigating the incident, has not reached out to Cordon.

McCoy has repeatedly denied any involvement with the incident. On Tuesday, the mother of McCoys son, Stephanie Maisonet, provided an affidavit that was included in the civil case Cordon filed that alleges their son would often come home with bruises after spending time with McCoy. In order to explain the bruises, Maisonet said she would consistently receive outlandish excuses from McCoy.

The allegations made against me today regarding my relationship with my son are provably false, outrageously inaccurate and offensive, McCoy said in the statement. I have a loving and close knit relationship with my son. That young boy is my while life. With a custody case coming up in November , I can see why these false allegations are surfacing.

Cordon said other women, in addition to Maisonet, have contacted her to allege McCoy had physically abused them, taken back other gifts he has given them, and exhibited aggressive behavior towards them and towards his child.

Delicia Cordon, the ex-girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, told the media in a press conference Friday that she believes McCoy was involved in the setup of her assault over the summer, and that she has  upped her reward for any information relating to the case to $40,000.

“The LeSean McCoy that I know behind closed doors is different than the LeSean McCoy in front of the cameras,” Cordon said, as reported by USA Today. “This attack was about … jewelry that LeSean expressed he wanted back from me weeks before the attack.”

Cordon was robbed and assaulted while staying at McCoys Georgia home in July, and she told police at that time she thought McCoy “set me up” after the running back demanded $133,000 worth of jewelry from her amid a breakup. McCoy deemed the allegations “baseless and offensive” shortly afterward, but Cordon filed a court complaint in August and reiterated her concerns on Friday.

“Every day I live my life in fear, not knowing if Im walking past the man who savagely attacked me,” she said. “LeSean said that he was going to deal with all of this after his season. I dont have that option. I have to deal with this every day. Hes not helping. Hes not giving up any information with the security cameras that we have asked. He simply is — I dont know. I dont know what hes doing.”

Earlier this week, Stephanie Maisonet, the mother of McCoys son, provided an affidavit that was included in Cordons case, per USA Today. That affidavit alleged separate abuse from McCoy — that their son would “often come home with bruises” after spending time with McCoy. And Cordon said Friday that Maisonet is not the only woman to back suggestions of an abusive history, with other women contacting her to recount “aggressive behavior towards them and towards his child.”

While the NFL has publicly acknowledged it is investigating the July incident, McCoy has repeatedly denied wrongdoing, saying as recently as Tuesday that allegations of abuse and of involvement in the summer assault are inaccurate, as USA Today noted:

“The allegations made against me today regarding my relationship with my son are provably false, outrageously inaccurate and offensive,” McCoy said in the statement. “I have a loving and close knit relationship with my son. That young boy is my whole life. With a custody case coming up in November, I can see why these false allegations are surfacing.”

In the meantime, Cordon is offering $40,000 for details about her assault after initially offering $20,000.

This isnt the first time McCoy has been under a legal spotlight. In May 2013, before he was traded to the Bills by the Philadelphia Eagles, the six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro was investigated by police after he allegedly had a woman assaulted and removed from a nightclub party bus after the woman complained about McCoy spraying her and 15 other women with water.
