"These things take a little bit of time. That's how it works," Reid said. "But it'll work out."
McCoy, who was voted to his first Pro Bowl last season after rushing for 1,309 yards and scoring 20 total touchdowns, has one year remaining on the four-year contract he signed after he was drafted in 2009.
The Eagles hope to avoid a potential holdout or the kind of distraction DeSean Jackson brought about last season when he didn't get his extension. The wide receiver signed a five-year, $51 million contract two weeks ago with the Eagles.
Jackson said then that Reid had a great deal to do with getting a deal done.
"We all felt that he's an important part of things," Reid said of Jackson. "It wasn't me. It wasn't one person."
Reid was asked why he decided to bring back the 25-year-old receiver.
"If you were around the defensive coordinators in the [NFL], they'd probably say it was a smart move for us to re-sign him," Reid said.
As for McCoy, Reid agreed with a questioner who asked whether the Eagles had overused the 23-year-old a season ago. McCoy finished with 273 carries, 66 more than he had the previous year. He did have 30 fewer receptions, though.
"As we go here, we need to spot him," Reid said.
The Tennessee Titans are interested in trading for Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel, according to TitansInsider.com. However, a second report from the Tennesseean newspaper said that the team has no interest.
Either way, Reid and Roseman have not gone as far as saying that Samuel is on the market. But NFL sources have said that the 31-year-old corner is available for the right offer.
The Eagles are seeking a third-round draft pick, according to the report. Samuel's $9.5 million salary has been viewed as potential obstacle to a deal, but he would be willing to restructure his contract to get a deal done, a source has said.
Still, Reid seemed content with keeping all three of his starting-caliber cornerbacks - Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Samuel.
"It's a pretty good situation to have," the coach said.
Reid didn't seem intrigued by the idea of bringing back quarterback Donovan McNabb. "I haven't gone there," he said. "I think it's tough for a guy that's been the guy for that long to come back." . . . Free-agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress has openly campaigned for the Eagles to sign him. "Right now, that's not where we're at," Reid said. . . . The Rotary Club of Tulsa will present a President's Award to the Eagles in June for their Eagles Youth Partnership program, which provides health and education programs to children; their support for breast-cancer research; and their Go Green initiative, which encourages reuse, recycling, and renewable energy sources.
