Colt McCoy’s rising salary places doubt in return to Browns in 2013


The Cleveland Browns may have told Colt McCoy that he was in the teams plans for 2013 but that is no guarantee. McCoy’s salary is scheduled to rise thanks to playing time escalators.

McCoy’s base salary for 2013 was to be $575,000 but will now rise to $2.325 million.

Since the Browns do not consider McCoy an option at the quarterback position, and he falls short of the teams ideal vertical passer, his time in Cleveland may be over.

If the Browns do release McCoy there are options. Cleveland area beat writers consider Matt Moore, former Dolphins backup, and Derek Anderson as viable options.

The 26-year old McCoy has appeared in 24 games over his three year span in Cleveland. He has thrown 21 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.
