Despite the fact that the Cleveland Browns signed Jason Campbell, the Browns apparently will not cut loose Colt McCoy, at least not yet. Brandon Weeden will start the off-season at the top of the depth chart, but the Browns are saying right now that the best players will play. If Colt McCoy is the best quarterback, he’ll be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. At least that’s the message of Browns CEO Joe Banner as he makes the rounds on both ESPNCleveland and 92.3 The Fan this morning. That’s a pretty good stance on a quarterback – even one with a suspect future – who makes less than $3 million like Colt McCoy. Despite the fact that many Browns fans continue to tell me Colt McCoy has no trade value, as long as he has a chance to put some pre-season performances together, there’s always a chance. Or maybe Colt McCoy pulls off a miraculous feat and wins the starting quarterback job. Not at all likely, and the Browns aren’t likely to give McCoy much better a chance to win the job than Pat Shurmur and company did a year ago as they anointed Brandon Weeden.

  • Who cares what Joe Banner AKA as DR. NO says. The Browns continue the musical chairs game and are a joke because of this.
  • Everyone knows McCoy will have a great camp and preseason(False hopes)Regular season is where he will actually look bad and now he's prone to injury and concussions. Means a messy year for the Browns at quarteback.
  • Mr Banner needs to let Chud do his job that said I hope Colt gets a true shot at competing for the job.
