Cleveland Browns receive 7th round pick for McCoy

The Cleveland Browns traded QB, Colt McCoy and a 6th round 2013 draft pick to the San Francisco 49’ers today. The compensation is reportedly a 5th and 7th round 2013 draft picks for the Cleveland Browns.

With the recent signing of QB, Jason Campbell, McCoy became expendable. McCoy started 21 games with the Browns in three seasons after being drafted in 2010. Injuries and the direction of the former regime’s offensive scheme often kept McCoy out of the fold.

The third round pick of the Browns now has a new start with the 49’ers, who also signed kicker, Phil Dawson during free agency. Colt will be competing for a backup position with San Francisco.

What direction the Cleveland Browns take with the #6 pick in the upcoming draft now takes an interesting twist. Will they choose Gino Smith at QB? This is also a good move by the Browns front office to give them flexibility in trading down in the draft. intitially broke the news of the trade and no official word has come from the Cleveland Browns.

Should be an interesting scenario unfolding on NFL Draft Day in Cleveland!
