The man who was the Browns' starting quarterback just two years ago will now compete just to stay in the league. Quarterback Colt McCoy was traded from Cleveland to San Francisco on Monday. A 2013 sixth-round pick headed west with McCoy. The Browns received a fifth-round pick and a seventh-round pick this year. McCoy will battle with Scott Tolzien for the right to back up Colin Kaepernick this season.
It's a minimal haul for Cleveland, but it's something more than nothing. Many reports stated the Browns were just going to cut McCoy lose, so to get anything for him is a win. McCoy became expendable when the team signed Jason Campbell earlier this week. McCoy isn't a lock to get the second-string job in San Fran. I think he will in the end, but he is of no concern in fantasy leagues, obviously.
