Cleveland (NFL/Newsfeed) – On Thursday morning, the Cleveland Browns leaked details that they expected Colt McCoy to make a “big leap forward” in 2012. By Thursday night, he was on the trade block.
Monday has arrived, and McCoy is back exactly where he started: The Browns’ team facility. Tom Withers of The Associated Press noted that McCoy was present for the team’s offseason system.
Really, what alternative does he have?
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network tells ATL that the Browns count on McCoy to be back on the team. The Browns can’t get anything for him in a trade unless some injury pops up on another team in the course of training camp. It appears the Browns won’t push McCoy out the door, and he’s clearly not pushing to leave.
It’s all a tiny awkward simply because the Browns clearly see Brandon Weeden as their starter. Give McCoy credit for realizing that his greatest opportunity to in fact compete for snaps remains with the Browns.
