When the Cleveland Browns signed former first-round pick Jason Campbell to back up Brandon Weeden on Tuesday, it all but sealed the fate of current back up Colt McCoy. There was always a belief that McCoy was on the outs in Cleveland, but now there is more reason to believe the buzz. Today, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the Browns would explore all options before ultimately parting ways with McCoy.
The Browns will listen to offers, but have no immediate plans to trade or release backup quarterback Colt McCoy, a source said. However, McCoy might want to seek his release so that he can catch on with another team now.
It is highly unlikely that the Browns would find a trade partner for McCoy, but hey, if a team traded for Tim Tebow then I guess anything is really possible.
Ultimately, we would have to guess that McCoy would be released and then have the opportunity to choose his next team. A change of scenery could end up doing McCoy well, but we will have to see what team is willing to take a gamble.
