Colt McCoy was traded by the Cleveland Browns to San Francisco 49ers to back up Colin Kaepernick. During a introductory conference call after the trade, McCoy was asked if he was given a fair shot in Cleveland or whether Brandon Weeden was set to start the moment the Browns drafted him.
McCoy, in an act of professionalism avoided the topic.
“I’d really rather stay away from that topic,” McCoy said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “There were some very positive, high moments there and there were also some low times. It was unfortunate kind of the way it all went down and ended, but I have no hard feelings toward those guys. I wish them nothing but the best.”
The Browns might as well be the Hatfields in this feud with the McCoys. While Colt fell to the usual scrutinty for his on field performance, the McCoys were upset with the Browns for the way they handled Colt’s concussion.
Colt however is looking to move past that and didn’t want to talk about that hit he received from James Harrison.
“Obviously it was a long time ago. I’d rather not bring it up again,” McCoy said. “The most important thing is health-wise, I feel great.”
