Report: Browns talking Colt McCoy trade with Packers

Colt McCoy AP

Citing a source, Bill Huber of Packer Report reports that the Packers and Browns have discussed a trade that would send quarterback Colt McCoy to Green Bay.

McCoy is being shopped after the Browns used the 22nd overall pick in last night’s first round on Brandon Weeden. Weeden is tentatively projected as the Browns’ new Week One starter. His backup would be Seneca Wallace.

As Huber notes, the Packers have one sixth-round pick and four seventh-round picks to dangle in trade talks. They would be targeting McCoy as a backup upgrade on Graham Harrell and former Arena League southpaw Nick Hill.

    Can a feller get a thumbs down?

  2. gmen4life33 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:02 AM

    would be a really good trade for packers for a 6th/7th. They can use Colt to backup Rodgers, and if he has one or two good games that Rodgers misses/sits out, then they can trade him and get the pick right back. Basically get his service for free, maybe even get something out of it

  3. audient says: Apr 27, 2012 11:02 AM

    Browns fan here. I like Colt McCoy. Maybe a fresh start for him would be for the best. Packers are a fine team. If that’s where you go, wish you the best.

  4. dv5454 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:02 AM

    If the Pack give up 6th or 7th rounder, this would be a high value deal for the team. The Packers are sitting on 11 more picks, and not all of them would make the team. Let’s see if TT & Co. can close the deal.

  5. notrelated says: Apr 27, 2012 11:03 AM

    Embarrassing organization. What a disaster this team is.

  6. pooflingingmonkey says: Apr 27, 2012 11:05 AM

    Any respite from Cleveland must be welcomed by McCoy at this point.

  7. 1972wasalongtimeago says: Apr 27, 2012 11:07 AM

    First, we’re going toput you back in the game three plays after you’re concussed by James Harrison.

    Next, we’re going to commit to you as our starter for the 2012 season.

    Then, after assuring you that we’re not drafting a QB in Round 1, we’re going to draft a QB in Round 1.

    Then we’re going to tell the world that he’s our starter.

    Lastly, we’re going to trade you for a 7th rounder to a place where you’ll never see the field.

    Okay, we cool?

  8. christopher525 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:07 AM

    So, the leadership in Cleveland ARE idiots. They now need to draft their “Quarterback of the Future” in 2 years or thereabouts. We in Carolina picked an old ass QB before who was supposed to be a “superstar.”

  9. joemammy says: Apr 27, 2012 11:08 AM

    Maybe Colt misunderstood.

    Maybe he was told by Holmgren that the Packers would not be drafting a quarterback in the first round.

  10. chc4 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:08 AM

    Why in the world would they go ahead and annoint Weeden the starter? As if we needed more proof how bad that org is. Poor Clevelanders.

  11. medtxpack says: Apr 27, 2012 11:08 AM

    id pass on Colt, but im not Ted. Do whats right for the Pack.

  12. cledawg says: Apr 27, 2012 11:09 AM

    Browns fan here as well:
    I liked Colt, it’s really sad that our front office judged his work with the horrible WR’s we have. The guy is an accurate passer, just not the big arm.
    I honestly thought he would have a solid year if we got him a real supporting cast.
    Good luck Colt, Hope you get a chance to prove that fat EGO Holmgren wrong

  13. ammarradhi says: Apr 27, 2012 11:09 AM

    Time for Rodgers to give up the #12 Jersey

  14. larrydavidstern says: Apr 27, 2012 11:10 AM

    As a Browns fan, they should just keep him as a nice backup/insurance policy who already knows the offense. Don’t really see the point in trading him for a pick that probably won’t make the team anyway.

  15. ericadams216 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:13 AM

    I’m from cleveland. I was not sold on the fact that the browns gave up on colt so soon. On top of that for a guy who has never took one nfl snap. I say keep colt and let them compete. I think Colt would beat him out.

  16. skolvikesskol says: Apr 27, 2012 11:13 AM

    As a vikes fan i miss the bumbling and stumbling days of the packers of the 80s. This would be a great pick up for them. They truly are the gold standard of the nfl right now.

  17. sirhulka says: Apr 27, 2012 11:13 AM

    Good for him. Much like every other QB from the Browns since 1999, he was a victim of an incompetent organization. He could probably be a decent backup with the weapons in GB. It’s always fun watching former Browns players go elsewhere and succeed. Now that the Lions are on the upswing, the Browns are the true joke of the the NFL. It’s great.

  18. savocabol1 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:14 AM

    I don’t understand what the Browns are doing here. Trade away Seneca Wallace and keep Colt.

    But that makes too much sense.

  19. pfii63 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:18 AM

    Is it just me, or can only the Browns turn last night into a net loss? They get a great running back, and then lie to Colt and draft a QB who is untested and likely no better than their current starter.

    I am beginning to think Holmgren is insane. The best move would have been to give McCoy another play-maker, or to improve the defense in the first round. This pick is a major reach, and no real upside over McCoy.

  20. 3yardsndust says: Apr 27, 2012 11:19 AM

    The Cleveland Browns: so classy.

  21. jtdapit50 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:21 AM

    Seriousley?!?! They draft Mccoy and give him ZERO weapons to work with in two years, now they draft Weeden and won’t even let Colt Compete against him?!? Even if it DOES work out, that’s some cold Sh!t.

  22. gimmeabruschi says: Apr 27, 2012 11:23 AM

    McCoy puts up numbers equivalent to a bunch of starting NFL QBs, for a bad team, and suddenly he is replaced by a 29 yo untested rookie and likely relegated to backing up one of the games elite QBs.

    That’ll teach him to cause a ruckus about concussions in the NFL.

  23. thesupremeforce says: Apr 27, 2012 11:27 AM

    I haven’t seen anything out of Colt that makes him better than Seneca Wallace. Also, Colt (and/or his father) suffers from a serious entitlement complex.
    I’m not convinced that Colt would even improve the Packers’ depth at the position.

  24. mvp43 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:30 AM

    Colt McCoy is a better player than he’s shown in Cleveland. He may not be a starter but he can be a serviceable back to Aaron Rodgers. Cleveland has become a dumpster fire and I’m sure Colt would love to get out of there.

  25. londonfletcher says: Apr 27, 2012 11:32 AM

    Ok, so Colt goes to Green Bay, sits until the last game of the season when Rogers is resting for the playoffs, Colt comes in, plays well against some teams beat up secondary, and gets signed by a qb hungry team for $400 million over 6 years, $399mill guaranteed. Isn’t that how it works now?

  26. mp42245 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:35 AM

    Holmgren is an idiot and a snake. Maybe can trade a couple of 7ths for him and then cut him. The NFL would be better for it.

    I admire the Packers FO for the most part, but the gold standard would be the Giants. Because they are the World Champs.

    =================

    Colt will at least draw interest with a low round draft choice. Only way Seneca Wallace draws interest is if he can play special teams.

    I wonder if Weeden drives an F-150

  31. irishgary says: Apr 27, 2012 11:41 AM

    I feel bad for Browns fans, still can’t understand the trade with the Vikings for the 3rd pick and dumping McCoy for a 6th or 7th would be a very good trade for the Pack.

  32. bchapman2011 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:42 AM

    Throwing smokescreens is a part of the process but don’t involve your own players cleveland. It was wrong for them to publicly talk up colt mcoy right up to the day of the draft. They said over and over how commited they were. There is no way things changed that fast. They mislead him from the start.

  33. ppc50 says: Apr 27, 2012 11:44 AM

    I would love to see him in Dallas as a possible long term solution. Romo is good, but the heat is on if they don’t make the playoffs this year (and they may not – tough schedule) and Orton is not the guy. Jones should send Jenkins and get McCoy and a draft pick. I think McCoy is a winner who had no WRs to throw to – Little and Cribbs are ok

  34. jackblackshairyback says: Apr 27, 2012 12:15 PM

    I like Colt, he’s asntough as they come and he’s a gamer, but he just doesn,t have the ohysical tools needed to be a quality starter in the NFL. Accurate? Please. Go pull up some film of him last year, see how manymswing routes he missed, how many times he threw behind the receiver on a 5 yard pattern over the middle.

    How many times did a receiver have to wait on his wounded duck to fall from the sky? Weeden has a stronger arm, a much better completion % in college.

    As far as being lied to, this is the pros. It’s part of the way it goes. Anyone who thought the Browns really were ok with Colt missed the fact that theyoffered 3 first round picks(and tried to throw in a 2nd at the last minute) to replace him. Once that fell through, of course they are going to talk him up. What were they supposed to say, “Co,t sucks. We’re going to replace him first chance we get.” They told him theynwouldnt draft a qb in the first round when they planned to take Richardson with 4(turned out to be 3), and Kendall Wright at 22. Once Tennessee took Wright at 20, that plan had to change. After losing out on RG3, they couldn’t risk losing out on the next best qb(anyone who had Tannehill ranked as the 3rd qb is a moron).

    This is a big boy game. Crap happens, and it isn’t always fair.

    btw, Colt isn’t requesting a trade. The Browns are trying to get a young WR off Green Bay’s roster for him, but it may not happen.

  35. geezohman says: Apr 27, 2012 12:16 PM

    Colt data: best completions – 16th in NFL and 6th in AFC…

    receivers finished near last in drops etc

    ————-

    RB not picked first since 2006 Reggie Bush.

    last year RB Alabama was even Heisman Trophy in sophmore year… read his NFL start data !

    Keep up the good work Holmgren

  36. bigbadal21 says: Apr 27, 2012 12:17 PM

    They keep Seneca and trade McCoy because trading McCoy takes away his cap hit. All in all though Holmgren is a bafoon.

  37. gpack22 says: Apr 27, 2012 12:18 PM

    As a Packer fan I’m not even sure he would be a upgrade at backup QB. I’ve not seen a thing from Colt since hurting his shoulder in the bowl game a few yrs ago. Granted, the offense and playmaker options in Clevenland are JV at best, but i guess maybe a 7th rounder would be worth a look.

    Graham Harrell has been in McCarthy’s system and QB school and could very well follow in Flynn’s steps.

  38. slammincamnewton says: Apr 27, 2012 12:24 PM

    The Browns are a horrible, cheap franchise, and their fans keep falling for it. Holmgren threw up a smoke screen during free agency saying McCoy is their guy, and Colt McCoy is not a NFL QB IMO. They wouldn’t take heat for not going after Manning or Flynn to save money. Now, they draft a QB who probably won’t do snot in the NFL because he has no one to throw to, and now Cleveland Brownpies are trying to dump McCoy. What a disaster. I feel for you Cleveland fans. Atleast Detroit tried and got it wrong for years. Cleveland just isn’t trying.

  39. raqaiw says: Apr 27, 2012 12:25 PM

    Colt McCoy never won a divisional game. Not even 1.
    I expect Weeden to do the same. You add a RB as your first pick when you play in a division with 2 of the best run defenses in the game? If you’re not a Cleveland fan you can’t even name a WR on that team other than Cribbs(who isn’t a great WR), but they use the 2nd 1st rounder not on a play-making WR, but on an old rookie….? It boggles the mind. I said Holmgren was a crazy genius after he got all that draft collateral for trading last year, now I just think he’s crazy.

  40. EJ says: Apr 27, 2012 12:28 PM

    Weeden is going to be a great QB in the NFL. The Browns were smart to pick him up, kids got talent. Everyone who says that Weeden will fail will be eating those words in a couple of years when he takes the Browns farther than they have been in a long time.

  41. houndog50 says: Apr 27, 2012 12:30 PM

    The only real surprise here is that this surprises anyone! Holmgren is, and has always been a terrible personnel guy! He sucked and was stripped of those duties in Seattle, and he’s failing again in Cleveland! Holmgren the coach got waaaayyyyy too much credit for what other people did in securing him the people that played the game. Decent Coach, Lousy personnel guy, Mike Holmgren.

  42. Deb says: Apr 27, 2012 12:31 PM

    Wow. My first impression of Colt in college was that he couldn’t handle adversity. He proved me wrong. It’s too bad his coaches didn’t have a little more faith. McCoy wasn’t responsible for last year’s debacle with Hillis and other personnel issues, but now that they’ve gotten him the big bruising back he needs … they’re showing him the door?

    Hope Colt lands with a good team and gets the opportunity to prove himself. And as a Tide fan with much love for Trent Richardson, I pray Holmgren and Shurmur treat him right.

  43. whyamiacowboysfanagain says: Apr 27, 2012 12:33 PM

    CLE management is truly clueless. If they simply drafted Decastro, that right there makes McCoy a much better QB — Defense is already solid. If you can’t get a WR in rounds 2-7 then play the year out. Worse case scenario, your lined up for Barkley next year with the picks to get him. I truly feel sorry for Clevelanders. Why does Holmgren still have a job?

  44. huejackson says: Apr 27, 2012 12:45 PM

    Weeden is the best QB in this draft class. He will be a star in the NFL, If Im a browns fan Im drinking all day with celebration you finally got a QB that can take you to the superbowl

  45. threegriffons says: Apr 27, 2012 12:45 PM

    Factory of Sadness indeed.

  46. cpp3 says: Apr 27, 2012 12:53 PM

    Browns were set up to have the best draft of pretty much any team and they’ve turned it into a disaster. First swapping one pick I think was stupid since I’m pretty sure Minnesota played them. Then, instead of just building a team in which Colt McCoy could actually have a chance at playing decently, they draft a QB who is probably the same talent, but no experience in the NFL. Should of taken one of those OL still on the board to at least give Richardson and McCoy a chance. They could of picked up a QB in the 2nd if they really needed it. Give McCoy a chance.

  47. RavenzGunnerz says: Apr 27, 2012 12:54 PM

    They are the Browns, you expect the Browns to do stuff like this.

  48. dawgpoundmember says: Apr 27, 2012 12:55 PM

    after being pissed off for hours the pick does make sense…no offensive lineman or reciever was worth taking at 22…i was not ready to give up on colt because he wasnt even suppose to be starting until this year, but he has played in 2 different systems with a specialist as his go to guy and its his fault. there still are a couple receivers out there but just a few lineman worth anyting.

  49. falstaffsmind says: Apr 27, 2012 12:58 PM

    This must be the first time in NFL history an established starter was replaced when the team drafted somebody older.

  51. gbpack50 says: Apr 27, 2012 1:21 PM

    As a Packer fan I welcome the trade for 6 and/or 7th pick. It’s just too bad that the loyal Browns fans have to put with the organizations stupid moves year after year. Great first pick in Richardson but with your other picks draft the best available offensive linemen and give Colt some help! Browns fans know thier football, listen to them!

  52. muckfodell says: Apr 27, 2012 1:25 PM

    Don’t anyone let the facts get in the way, but Heckert has final say on personnel.

    So if you want to fillet someone, he’s your guy.

    It was pretty apparent…weapons or not…that Colt would not be able to execute the offense to their liking.

    Weeden has a big arm, quick release and they like his decision-making.

    Will it work out? Who knows, but there were logical reasons for making the change.

  53. LoCoSu@%s says: Apr 27, 2012 1:33 PM

    ********************************************

    WHAT?!?!?!
    Riley Reiff was rated as the second best tackle, I believe 10th ranked, and David DeCastro was the best guard, and was supposed to go in the top 15. And no o-linemen were good enough to pick at 21?

    When DeCastro makes the Pro Bowl in the next 2 years, and your 30 year old rookie is showing that he is nothing better than what McCoy was, let’s see if you say the same thing.

  56. mogogo1 says: Apr 27, 2012 1:42 PM

    “Classless and clueless” should be the Browns trademarked slogan. They are in the never-ending rebuilding mode, with a new QB coming in every couple years. Start looking at the college juniors now and try to predict who will be replacing Weeden.

    You had to think they’d take a step forward with Richardson running the ball and McCoy having some experience. But with Weeden having to learn the entire system and starting from Day 1? This is a team that acts as if they don’t really want to get better.

    O Sweet Irony…

  58. renaissanceman87 says: Apr 27, 2012 1:46 PM

    Brandon Weeden has a better arm than Colt, and seems like a more confident fellow, exuding leadership qualities. However, Colt is coming to a team LOADED with talent… an offensive line that can block, no less than 3 very talented receivers and a stud TE in Jermichael Finley. If Colt was forced to start all season for the Packers because of some injury to Aaron Rodgers, the Packers would still win 10 games! Football is a team game… Rodgers is a fantastic QB, but he didn’t win the MVP all by himself, nor should Colt McCoy be held responsible for the Brown’s failures last season.

  59. gallogj says: Apr 27, 2012 1:55 PM

    last year draft RB from Alabama, was on an undefeated National Champ team, went in 2nd round draft to New Orleans, Mark Ingram, has done what?

    Colt finished fine in NFL in completions and about 7th in all of AFC and yet…

    his receivers had almost the worst drop record !

    Now a new QB has to learn against the best run defense rival Steelers… Harrison is licking his chops and Ray Lewis after another rookie.. lol

  62. trojan33sc says: Apr 27, 2012 2:04 PM

    Looks like a series of former Big12 qb’s playing musical chairs to me. Weeden replaces Colt who replaces Harrell ( who i didn’t even know was in the league.) but seriously, is Colt even allowed to compete for the starting position or has Holmgren seen all that he wants to see ???

  63. bobhpine says: Apr 27, 2012 2:13 PM

    Clear the way! The 28 year old rookie ginger is here to save the day! If Cleveland weren’t full of such miserable people I would feel badly. The browns are a joke.

  64. klumpofbrownsadness says: Apr 27, 2012 2:19 PM

    I hope this is some sort of smoke-screen by H&H. Weeden may very well be better, but he’s unproven. Colt may not be the savior of the franchise, but (1) he was a 3rd-rounder for a reason, (2) he’s under contract for what should be a relatively low cost, and (3) he’s got experience in this sytem. I’m not sure that the comment that ditching Colt saves more cap space than dumping Wallace is accurate either. The kid has gotten a rotten deal since being thrust into the starting role as a rookie. I want badly to keep the faith in the front office, but if all the rumors above are accurate, I must seriously wonder about Holmgren’s personnel skills. If NYJ think they can have Sanchez & Saint Tebow co-exist, Colt & Weeden co-existing in bowels of the factory of sadness shouldn’t be too difficult.

    All that said, if you can get someone to give up a 2nd & 3rd this year, then get it; otherwise, stay with what you have & fix the rest of the mess.

  68. johnster67 says: Apr 27, 2012 3:04 PM

    Colt will be playing in the SB before holmgren get in without a ticket.

  69. realfootballfan says: Apr 27, 2012 3:09 PM

    It’s amazing how much support a bad player like McCoy is getting here. I suppose it stems from his early couple of wins and decent showings in his rookie year.

    Fact is that McCoy is Koy Detmre reincarnated. If anyone is being serious about building a championship squad, he simply doesn’t have the physical tools to take a team anywhere.

    Had Newton slipped to them last year, they would have taken him. Obviously, Holmgren and his guys thought this old rookie was good enough for the task.

    They’ve never been sold on mcCoy, and truthfully, Holmgren freely admitted that the only reason he was drafted with that 3rd round pick a couple of years ago was because he overruled his scouting department and asked them to deviate from their board.

    Point is, no one in their right mind thought it was going to be McCoy long term. Classic example of the league figuring a smart, all be it physically inferior player out once they’ve gotten a book on him.

  70. geezohman says: Apr 27, 2012 3:13 PM

    with the Browns taking that QB, it dropped the best Offense lineman right into Pittsburgh lap’… and Ben must have fallen off his bar stool !

  71. chaser44 says: Apr 27, 2012 3:35 PM

    I think he would be a great fit for the birds as a backup to the injury prone vick. Maybe a 5th and 7th gets him, throw in trent edwards too. Colt could learn under a great qb coach and work in the west coast system which I think suits his style and arm.

  72. trapshoot says: Apr 27, 2012 3:42 PM

    Interesting rumor. For a fifth or sixth choice it might be a good move for Green Bay.

  75. jcsoggy says: Apr 27, 2012 3:51 PM

    Holmgren stated it takes 3 years for a quarterback to get up to speed. Colt has had 1.5 seasons and last year the Browns set a record for dropped passes. He also had no protection from the front line and the coaches play calls were a joke! Now tell me how much more luck the new quarterback will have? Yes we have a great running back but the offensive line is still a joke without a right tackle. Holmgren will not follow his own opinions.

    WHAT?!?!?!
    Riley Reiff was rated as the second best tackle, I believe 10th ranked, and David DeCastro was the best guard, and was supposed to go in the top 15. And no o-linemen were good enough to pick at 21?

    When DeCastro makes the Pro Bowl in the next 2 years, and your 30 year old rookie is showing that he is nothing better than what McCoy was, let’s see if you say the same thing.”
    **************************************************************

    @Nickster, I agree that DeCastro will be a good guard, but you lose the debate by basing your argument on where a kid is projected. You’re using a mock draft “expert” by media people and not by GMs. Let’s not give too much credit to the McShay’s or Mel Kiper’s over GMs.

    From “whipping boy” Browns to Super Bowl contenders… Wow… If I’m McCoy, my bags are already packed….

    I would love to see him in Dallas as a possible long term solution.

    Yeah – all the cowboy haters would love that. McCoy isn’t the answer to anything but useless trivia.

    Browns Fan here:
    I have to say that I like McCoy, and also felt that he did not have a good surrounding cast namely, WR’s and RB’s. I would like to see him stay compete for the starting QB’s position and may the best man win. If McCoy becomes 2nd that would be good. I actually say trade Wallace, let him go to GB, the dude is a cancer and said flat out he would not mentor any young talent as he wants to be a starter. Trade Wallace, perfect opportunity to cut your ties.

    Hurricane33 out!

    I heard Jim Brown,, the Great Jim Brown said that Trent Richardson is just and ordinary play,,

    Message to you Jim glad your sour grapes are no longer with the Browns,,, You are the best RB the NFL ever seen, but you have always been full of drama.. Your class must have went out the window or balcony to that day.. Jim shut up!

    I would Love to see him a Packer for a 7th round draft choice he has only a 490,000 salary and in McCarthy’s system with great weapons he would be a good back up

    To all Browns fans

    Your first pick was Trent Richardson, your kicker is Phil Dawson, Josh Cribbs is on punt and kick return and you finally have a top 10 defense. At this point you’re one O lineman away from Holmgren probably being able to get your team 8 wins if he QB’d himself. If you don’t understand, ask Baltimore fans, they’re QB is useless and they make the playoffs yearly.

    There is substantial evidence that the Pack has a proven way to do a good job of evaluating young QB talent and Green Bay has a proven approach to develop young QB talent.

    So, if the Green Bay managers have an authentic interest in Colt McCoy, I believe they see something that Cleveland missed. It’s a good idea to get Colt on board for a 6th or 7th instead of using a 4th, 5th, 6th, or 7th to take a rookie QB who has never been in a pro game before.

    Interesting/fascinating that the Pack got involved so fast on Colt after the Weeden pick materialized. Hats off to Mr. Thompson and his staff for being constantly alert for opportunities.

    It’s impressive …. seems like there’s a bunch of supercomputers working in the offices over on the third floor at Lambeau. So, I don’t have to spend time second guessing what they do with our roster. Makes it an easier job to be a fan.

    I hope this is some sort of smoke-screen by H&H. Weeden may very well be better, but he’s unproven. Colt may not be the savior of the franchise, but (1) he was a 3rd-rounder for a reason, (2) he’s under contract for what should be a relatively low cost, and (3) he’s got experience in this sytem. I’m not sure that the comment that ditching Colt saves more cap space than dumping Wallace is accurate either. The kid has gotten a rotten deal since being thrust into the starting role as a rookie. I want badly to keep the faith in the front office, but if all the rumors above are accurate, I must seriously wonder about Holmgren’s personnel skills. If NYJ think they can have Sanchez & Saint Tebow co-exist, Colt & Weeden co-existing in bowels of the factory of sadness shouldn’t be too difficult.

    All that said, if you can get someone to give up a 2nd & 3rd this year, then get it; otherwise, stay with what you have & fix the rest of the mess.

    @klumpofbrownsadness: In what universe do you live if you believe the Browns will get a 2nd and 3rd for Colt McCoy? Colt is getting a raw deal from the Browns brass, but the Browns would be dumping him on the market as a cap move. He would be serving as a back-up QB until he would get another shot to prove himself. He would fit well enough in Green Bay, but no one would expect it to be a long term stay. Hopefully for Colt, he lands with a quality organization and gets to rehabilitate his career.

    Colt McCoy > Seneca Wallace

    It is FAR to early for the Clevelan Clowns to give up on Colt McCoy, stupid Browns….

  89. hondo69 says: May 12, 2012 6:43 AM

    Gotta love the Browns, they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

    If I were Colt I’d tell the Browns they can take their chump change and shove it. First, they were going to sit him for two years, but threw him into the fire anyway. Then, they changed offensive schemes after his first year while trading away what little talent Colt had around him. Smart move.

    There is no way in hell I’d show up for training camp if I were him. Clevenland is not the end of the earth, but you can see it from there.
