Browns Never Intended To Give Away Colt McCoy

The Cleveland Browns have received interest in quarterback Colt McCoy, but they've never planned to give him away for little or no return, as Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer reports. The Browns have been asking for a solid draft pick in exchange for last year's starter.

Playing in 13 games last season, McCoy had mixed results, showing little improvement from his rookie season in Cleveland. He completed 57 percent of his passes for 2,733 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, good for a 74.6 passer rating.

Given the uninspiring performance by McCoy, the Browns went out this offseason and drafted Brandon Weeden in the first round of the draft. He was named the starter weeks ago, forcing McCoy into a backup role just one year after being the primary starter at the age of 25.
