Colt McCoy wants to finish what he started in Cleveland (is there a half-painted fence we don’t know about?), but he’s not sure he’ll get a fair shot at winning the Browns’ starting job.
Asked Friday during a youth football camp the money question about whether he’ll get a chance to earn his money as a member of the Browns in 2012, McCoy was candid. “We’ll see, I don’t know,” McCoy said at his youth football camp on Friday, via KXAN.com. “There are a lot of things I can control and I’m controlling those things. The things beyond that I try to do my best to not worry about those and go out there and do what I do on the field, that’s the most important thing. Beyond that, I can’t do anything else.”
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the Browns want to replace McCoy; otherwise, they wouldn’t have used the 22nd pick in the draft on a 28-year-old quarterback.
In May, McCoy said he was told he’d get a fair shot to compete. Perhaps he can tell based on the full offseason program that the Browns have a different interpretation of the term “fair.”
