Ex-starter McCoy ‘proud’ to be with Browns



BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Colt McCoy insists he is happy in Cleveland even though he no longer starts for the Browns.

McCoy said after practice Tuesday that being replaced at quarterback by rookie Brandon Weeden hasn’t made him ask to be traded. The former Texas star, who started 13 games a year ago before being sidelined by a concussion, maintains that he is proud to play for Cleveland.

The Browns have been expected to try and work out a deal for McCoy. They also have 10-year veteran Seneca Wallace and coach Pat Shurmur likes what he has seen from young Thaddeus Lewis, claimed on waivers a year ago from St. Louis.

McCoy said he is preparing to play Friday against Philadelphia and he can’t control trade rumors.
