former University of Texas standout Colt McCoy might need to prove himself in the Browns’ final two preseason games to make their roster.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, McCoy, a third-round pick in April, is among one of eight players “on the bubble” for Eric Mangini’s team. That includes fellow QB Brett Ratliff, and two young running backs, James Davis and Chris Jennings.
This is dumb. I can't imagine the Browns cutting McCoy. I know Ratliff is a Mangini guy but still. You don't cut third round draft picks before they've even played a down in a meaningful NFL contest.
Wasn't the plan to have McCoy hold a clipboard all year anyways? The kid has some talent, no? Is it really that big of deal to carry four quarterbacks on the roster? I mean, with the way the new Browns have gone, they're usually picking guys up off the street for the final couple of games anyways.
