Browns president Mike Holmgren says there are no plans ''right now'' to move either quarterback Colt McCoy or Seneca Wallace before training camp. One of the two QBs will be rookie Brandon Weeden's backup. Weeden is expected to start this season after the Browns drafted the 28-year-old in the first round. Earlier this week, Wallace said he didn't think all three quarterbacks would be on the roster. Holmgren said plans could change but he could envision all three quarterbacks staying. Holmgren, who will turn 64 on Friday, said he plans to be more available during his third season in Cleveland. Holmgren has been criticized by some fans and media members for not being accessible or committed. Holmgren also reiterated that the Browns are not for sale, further refuting a report last week.
