For all the Colt McCoy haters out there especially guys like Denny Dice in Xenia, Ohio who lives his life just to hate McCoy. He isn't going anywhere now. The Browns have reported they have no immediate plans to release or trade Colt McCoy. Team sources in responding to reports in the Cleveland Plan Dealer, say McCoy isn't going anywhere for now.
When the Browns signed Brandon Weedon it was supposed to be the end of Colt McCoy in Cleveland, when they just signed Campbell, people thought McCoy would be gone. SO far he is still in Cleveland. The Browns think he is worth something and they are not just going to let him go by releasing him.
Unlike Weeden who the Browns wanted to trade but couldn't get any value for him, the team feels McCoy has some value. They will retain McCoy and we are not saying he will be on the roster once the season starts, but we are saying team sources say they have no plan in place at the time to release Colt McCoy.
We are not sure this is a good thing for McCoy, if the Browns would have released him perhaps he would have already been picked up by another team. Only time will tell what McCoy's fate will be. It will be interesting to see how this Cleveland quarterback situation plays out.
McCoy is set to make 2.35 million in 2013 and some think this is the main reason the Browns won't keep him. They paid Wallace 3 million for doing very little to help the team win. At least McCoy is a team player. That is more than we can say about Wallace. McCoy probably will be gone some time soon.
