As much as he doesn’t want to hear it, Colt McCoy has received every opportunity to prove himself as a starter in the NFL and now–one of the top Cleveland Browns rumors involves the teams parting ways with the quarterback before the 2013 season.
Just one day after the team signed Jason Campbell to a two-year deal, talk is beginning to heat up about the Browns and how they’re expected to part ways with McCoy–whether it comes through a trae or release. At this point in the offseason where the 2013 NFL Draft is right around the corner, it seems highly unlikely that any team would be willing to surrender a draft pick to acquire McCoy considering he’s yet to prove himself as a starter and any team really did want him–they will most likely have the opportunity once he’s released by the team.
One of the biggest questions for the Browns this offseason has been whether or not they would bring another quarterback on board to compete with Brandon Weeden considering the former first-round pick showed potential at times as a rookie, but not enough to convince the team he was their answer when it comes to being a franchise quarterback. Now that Campbell is officially on board, McCoy can eliminate any slim chance that was left of earning the starting job over Weeden next season considering he would be the No. 3 quarterback if the team planned on keeping him around–which doesn’t seem likely.
