Cleveland Browns Jerseys

McCoy Fine With Not Playing Right Away

No doubt that Colt McCoy is the talk of the Browns rookie camp this weekend, and NFL.com has a piece on the QB, and how he isn’t expecting to take the field much in the 2010 season:

Browns president Mike Holmgren already has said he wants quarterback Colt McCoy to stay on the sideline next season, learning behind veterans Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace, and that’s fine with McCoy, at least for now. “Every quarterback is a competitor,” McCoy said. “I do see myself playing in the long term. I want to be out there. Ask anyone in this locker room what they want, and they want to be suited up and playing. But right now my job is to come in and learn and do my best.” McCoy, who will wear No. 12 in Cleveland, called joining the Browns “the perfect fit,” even if he had to wait until the third round to be selected.

Criticized before the draft by former NFL coach Jon Gruden for his southern drawl, McCoy barked out signals Friday and did his best to lead the rest of the Browns’ players. “A lot of the guys we bring in typically have been captains at their universities,” coach Eric Mangini said. “Sometimes when they come to a new place, they sit in the shadows until they find their way through and then it starts to come out. But we want them to lead in whatever capacity they feel comfortable doing it. Some guys that’s in the weight room, some guys it’s in the locker room, and some guys it’s in the classroom. But we all have the capacity to help others become better.”
