Browns Training Camp: Colt McCoy Has Been Impressive

Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy is showing signs of improvement at training camp.

He's made some impressive plays working with the second unit and coach Pat Shurmur is happy with his progress, via Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain-Dealer:

"Colt's doing great," Shurmur said. "I think he's continuing to improve. I'm seeing him do things in this camp that he didn't do a year ago, and he's getting more comfortable within our system and he's coming to work every day and working hard. I think he's doing a good job.

"I just think he's more comfortable in the progressions. If it doesn't go to No. 1 or No. 2, he's throwing it to 3 instead of taking off and running. Those types of things -- commanding the huddle, knowing what his receivers can do and where he can put the football.''

Cabot goes on to note that this doesn't mean McCoy will stay in Cleveland. With Brandon Weems starting at QB, perhaps McCoy's play in training camp could boost his trade value.
