Cleveland Browns 2012: Colt McCoy Reports to Browns Training Facility

Jim McCarthy, Jr.Correspondent IApril 30, 2012

The Cleveland Browns surprised many by selecting former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden with their second first-round pick (22nd overall) in Thursday's 2012 NFL draft.

No one might have been as surprised as current Browns QB Colt McCoy, whose future with the team is now in question.

According to an Associated Press report, McCoy reported to the Browns training facility in Berea on Monday to begin the team's voluntary offseason conditioning program. There was speculation over the weekend that McCoy could be dealt in a trade to solidify Weeden's position as the starter in Cleveland.

Members of the Browns' front office have been very non-committal regarding McCoy's future since drafting Weeden on Thursday.

"I like him a lot," Browns' president Mike Holmgren told the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Saturday, "He's tough, but (we) still wanted to see if someone else could be the man."

"I'm not going to speculate on anything," Holmgren added. "We'll wait and see."

The Browns drafted McCoy out of Texas with the 85th-overall selection in the 2010 NFL draft. In 21 career starts for the Browns, McCoy is 6-15 with a completion percentage of 58.4 percentage.

One thing is for sure.

Weeden will become the 21st player to start at quarterback for the Browns since Bernie Kosar was cut during the 1994 season by then coach Bill Belichick. Something has to give.
