Browns Offseason: QB Colt McCoy Wants A Chance To Earn Starting Job Browns

Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy started 13 games last season but was never able to seize control of the position which led the Browns to draft Brandon Weeden in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft.

Weeden and fellow first-rounder, running back Trent Richardson remain unsigned with training camp scheduled to begin in late July. While McCoy remains on the roster, he will not be considered the incumbent starter when camp begins as the Browns hope the rookie Weeden, who is actually three years older than McCoy, can take the starting job and run with it.

McCoy is ready to make Weeden earn that starting role though instead of just giving the position to the rook.

"That's part of my nature," McCoy said Tuesday according to the Joey D. Richards of ReporterNews.com. "You're getting everything I have, whether that's working, preparing, studying or practicing. Unfortunately, a lot of things are out of my control. The main thing for me is not to worry about those things I can't control. I have to go in, do my job and have high character and compete my tail off, if the opportunity's available. Other than that, there's not much you can do. So that's what I try to do every day."

The Browns begin camp on Saturday, July 28th with a morning practice starting at 8:45 a.m. ET at their training facility in Berea, Ohio.
