    At least he is going somewhere where the team will be honest with him. He never got a fair shake at the starting job, but at least Phil will have some company. I am not saying Colt was the answer, just saying he/we never got to see if he could have been.

      Maybe. He was on a team that was not loaded with talent, to be sure .. . if that is not “getting a fair shake”, then I guess so . . . but a lot of other players were on those same teams, too, D’Qwell, Haden, Thomas, Mack, Rubin, for example. No matter what they do in the draft, on paper, Cleveland right now is a better team talent-wise than at any time since their return. And, how long has it been since Cleveland could trade anyone for talent on their roster?

    Sure he did not play around a lot of talented players when he was the fulltime starter in 2011 and had the job yanked from him the next year without getting a chance to compete for it, but that does not change the fact that so many short passes landed at guys ankles or just way off target! Colt is a smart and great guy who will do great in life after he is out of the league in two or three years after hanging on with SF and maybe another team after that as a 2nd or 3rd stringer!
