With Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell in the mix to be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, Colt McCoy wasn’t going to stick around.
The Browns found a new home for him today, trading him to the San Francisco 49ers. The Browns will get a late-round draft pick in exchange, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
McCoy, 26, has 21 career starts over three seasons and he will be in position to be the backup to Colin Kaepernick for the Niners. McCoy started 13 games in 2011, passing for 2,733 yards with 14 touchdowns.
