NFL News Cleveland Browns Colt McCoy backup will be - It's been evident for a while that Colt McCoy is going to be starting at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns in 2011. But who's going to be there to back him up?
In a Thursday column, Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer doesn't foresee Jake Delhomme lasting much longer in Cleveland. The first year of Delhomme's two-year pact went about as well as the cynics suggested it would following the signing, and he's slated to earn $5.4 million in 2011. Those factors add up to a release, and the only question is when.
As for Seneca Wallace, the versatile vet's contract is up, and it's possible he'll want to market himself to other teams this offseason, possibly including franchises that need a starter, not just an understudy.
So for the Browns, it's the draft or a free agent veteran. One possibility is Tarvaris Jackson, who has experience with the West Coast principles taught by Brad Childress, who is on the Mike Holmgren tree. Again, just a speculative guess there, nothing concrete yet (and there won't be until the CBA gets sorted out).
