With Brandon Weeden impressing in offseason practices, speculation has picked up once again about the Browns possibly trading Colt McCoy. The Browns tried to move McCoy on draft day, after using a 1st round pick on Brandon Weeden, but could not find a suitor. According to ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi, the Browns are not only interested in moving McCoy, but won’t ask much in return for him, which suggests that they may have had their asking price too high the last time they traded him.
ESPN’s John Clayton mentioned Green Bay as a potential landing spot for McCoy and he’s not the only one with that opinion. The drop off from Aaron Rodgers to Graham Harrell if something were to happen to Rodgers would be a significant one and McCoy is an experienced starter who is still young and he’d come cheap. The Packers might be able to get him for a mere 7th rounder and his salary for the 2012 season is only 540 thousand.
