Newly acquired Eagles receiver Steve Smith, the former Giants' wideout, said he planned to visit with Philly running back LeSean McCoy and tell him that his shot at the running back was just a "Twitter beef." 

But McCoy is apparently still simmering over Smith's tweak of the running back, who called Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora soft in his own Twitter remarks. 

“That’s going to take a little time. He wasn’t the happiest,” said Smith after Monday’s practice, per “He said he meant what he said, so it’s all good.”

McCoy called Umenyiora soft and overrated, to which Umenyiora referred to McCoy as "Lady Gaga" and called him "she." 

Smith responded on Twitter: “The nerve of certain youngins running their mouth." He attached a photoshopped image of an empty Eagles' trophy case, a reference to Philly's lack of Super Bowl hardware.
