Colt McCoy Rumor: Browns Expected To Trade QB

Colt McCoy’s days in Cleveland could be coming to an end. The Browns recently signed quarterback Jason Campbell and rumor has it that the team is now looking to get rid of their second string QB.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns don’t have any immediate plans to get rid of McCoy but they are listening to offers.

In addition to having Campbell on the roster, McCoy is also considered a mismatch for the down field offensive style of new coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner. According to reporter Mary Kay Cabot, McCoy would be better suited playing for an offensive geared toward short passing plays.

Dawgs By Nature reports that the Browns may also look to get rid of McCoy to save some money. The QB is reportedly set to make $2.5 million in 2013. If the Browns release him, however, they’ll owe just under $200,000.

McCoy was drafted in 2010 by the Cleveland Browns. He went 6-15 as a starter and was demoted to a backup last year behind Brandon Weeden.

McCoy could stay with the Browns where he’d likely be a third string quarterback but it’s more likely for him to seek greener pastures. According to the Statesman, the Browns quarterback could see a lot of interest from the New Orleans Saints, the St. Louis Rams, and the San Francisco 49ers. He’d be a backup quarterback on all three of those teams.

SB Nation reports that the Raiders, Bills, Jaguars and Cardinals could all take a look at McCoy to fill a starting position.
