Colt McCoy joined the San Francisco 49ers this offseason after the reigning NFC champions sent a sixth-round pick to the Cleveland Browns, but it looks like his tenure with the team could be coming to an abrupt end.

On Sunday afternoon, reports surfaced that the 49ers are looking to trade McCoy after signing Seneca Wallace.

If there are no takers, you can expect McCoy to be released. The cut could come as soon as the next 48 hours with teams needed to get their rosters down to 75 men by Tuesday afternoon.

Two teams that could be interesting suitors are the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills.

Both of the teams are working out NFL veterans Matt Leinart and John Beck, so McCoy would definitely be worth a look.

Things on the McCoy trade front should develop rather quickly, but you can expect the team to ultimately release him. It was hard enough of a struggle for the Browns to pick up a trade partner, so now it would be even tougher to imagine someone giving up a draft pick for damaged goods.
