Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writs that it’s doubtful that QB Colt McCoy is back with the Browns next season.
According to Pluto, the Browns “don’t believe McCoy can be a viable starter” and are reportedly considering Matt Moore and Matt Cassel as backups that could push Brandon Weeden for the job next season.
McCoy, 26, triggered escalators in 2012 that increased his salary from $575,000 to $2.325 million for the upcoming season.
Considering that Cleveland’s new front office is reportedly not impressed in him, it seems as though there’s a decent chance that he’ll be cut loose in the coming weeks.
The Packers were rumored to have interest in McCoy last year given their need for a solid backup quarterback and ability to develop the position, so they could show interest in McCoy if is in fact released.
