The Cleveland Browns realized soon after the NFL Draft that they want to get rid of quarterback Colt McCoy. They had no takers, so they decided to keep him, reports ESPNCleveland.com.

"When Weeden was drafted, I was told by an NFL source that the Browns didn’t want to 'pile on' McCoy and just release him," says Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com. "They were sensitive to the fact he had gotten such a raw deal already. They would like to find McCoy a new team, a new opportunity, to spare him the ignominy of being released. They will not demand much in a trade."

Browns team president Mike Holmgren said that McCoy has indeed had a rough time recently.

"I think (Colt's) a wonderful young man, and a good football player," Holmgren said. "And if you are asking me to say was it fair last year? He had a tough go and he didn’t get as much help as I thought he was going to get. But heck, that’s football.”
