Report: Packers Consider Deal For Colt McCoy
Sports

The Cleveland Browns reportedly may have found a taker for Colt McCoy in the Green Bay Packers. The teams are considering a deal for the former Browns starting quarterback on Friday, according to Scout.com. The Cleveland Browns said Thursday night they were actively shopping McCoy after drafting Oklahoma State’s Brandon Weeden with the 22nd overall pick in the NFL Draft. 

General Manager Tom Heckert said Weeden was drafted to be the starter and the organization would discuss trading Colt McCoy Friday, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

“Eventually (Weeden’s) going to be a starter for us,” Heckert said. “That’s what we draft him for.”

The Packers need a backup quarterback to Super Bowl winning quarterback Aaron Rodgers when Matt Flynn signed a free-agent deal with the Seattle Seahawks two months ago.

The Browns began overhauling their offense Thursday when they moved up to the No. 3 pick and drafted Alabama running back Trent Richardson. They took Weeden 19 picks later.

“We think he’s going to project into being an outstanding NFL quarterback and we were able to see that in the way he competed in college,” Browns coach Pat Schumur said. “We felt he was going to make us and the position better.”

McCoy was drafted in the third round by the Browns in the 2010 draft. He has started 21 games for the Browns, completing 400 of 685 passes for 4,309 yards, with 20 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.
