The Cleveland Browns traded backup quarterback Colt McCoy and a sixth-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers Monday, loosening the logjam the Browns had at the position, reports CBSSports.com.

The Browns will receive a fifth and seventh round pick for McCoy.

In three NFL seasons, McCoy is 6-15 as a starting quarterback for the Browns, and went 4-9 in 2011 when he won the job. He’s thrown for 21 touchdowns, 20 interceptions for 4,388 yards and has a career 74.8 quarterback rating. McCoy is scheduled to make $1.5 million next season because of escalators in his contract that raised his pay due to incentives reached in 2011.

The team signed Jason Campbell
