Quarterback Colt McCoy decided not to take any shots at the Cleveland Browns' organization on his way out the door.
McCoy was dealt to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, ending a three-year run in Cleveland that was marked by the team's seemingly slow diagnosis of a concussion on a hit by James Harrison against the Steelers and McCoy's job being handed to rookie Brandon Weeden last year.
“I’d really rather stay away from that topic,” McCoy said via the Cleveland Plain Dealer when asked about being demoted last year. “There were some very positive, high moments there and there were also some low times. It was unfortunate kind of the way it all went down and ended, but I have no hard feelings toward those guys. I wish them nothing but the best.”
He also steered clear of the concussion subject, an incident that created controversy when he was sent back in to finish that game after taking a vicious hit from James Harrison.
“I don’t think anyone would intentionally put someone out there to harm them more,” McCoy said. “As a competitor, you always want to play. There’s been lots of talk about that. Obviously it was a long time ago. I’d rather not bring it up again.
“The most important thing is health-wise, I feel great. My body feels good.”
