ESPN’s James Walker reports that the Browns have agreed to a four-year rookie deal with third-round pick Colt McCoy. McCoy received the “quarterback premium,” so he’ll be eligible for as much as $5 million over the contract’s life. The No. 85 overall pick usually receives about $3.3 million.
Browns president Mike Holmgren is on record as saying the team has no intentions to play McCoy this year. Otherwise, McCoy could’ve used this serenade via country singer Aaron Watson to pump him up before games.
