Schefter: Browns Do Not Expect to Trade McCoy

Despite initial reports following the selection of Brandon Weeden in the NFL Draft first round, the Browns now are not expecting to trade Colt McCoy. This comes from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who reported this news Saturday afternoon shortly after the start of day three of the draft:

We’ll keep you updated soon with all of the latest. Certainly, this makes a lot of sense to us, as McCoy seems like a much more feasible backup and/or immediate competitor to Weeden as opposed to returning backup Seneca Wallace.

    Of course they’re not going to trade McCoy. They “really like him.”

    Colt, the post office is open ’til 1 o’clock in case you need to get some change-of-address forms.

    They told him they were going to bring in someone to compete. He is not going anywhere.

    Keeping him makes me feel better…….not better about the pick of Weedon, but better.  It’s nice to have options and Colt is a better option then the 5th round pick we surely would have gotten for him.

    Has anyone noticed how often schefter is wrong on all his reports about the browns…pretty regularly
