Brady Quinn, a late first round pick, was traded for a 6th round. Rumors are that the Browns are looking to trade him on the cheap. If so, would you guys want him for say a 6th round pick? I'd say yes. We could develop as a replacement for Romo or just to attempt to pull a Philly and get a better pick in a couple years. Plus, I don't think he ever got a fair shake in Cleveland. Other than his TE, he had little receiver talent. Watch he will end up in Philly.

Absolutely. I would give them a 7th in a heart beat.

I'd trade for him, but not with the intent of ever having him as a "replacement" for Romo since McCoy is not an NFL calibre starting QB. I think he's perfectly suited to be a backup, but nothing resembling full-time starting QB.

My thoughts exactly.

I wouldn't trade for him, as the team already has Orton as the backup QB. I would rather use the 3rd QB spot on a developmental project, much in the same way the Boys did with Romo.

So when we trade for McCoy, what happen with Orten who signed for 3 years? so now we are paying for 2 back up QB's?

It's not like you would break the bank paying McCoy. If it is possible to have Orton and McCoy both on the roster for about the same price as Orton and McGee, why not upgrade our Mc3rd string QB from McGee to McCoy?

Colt Mccoy's contract is 540k for 2012 and 575k for 2013. Stephen Mcgee will make 615k this year and is a free agent in 2013. If we dump Mcgee, I don't see how Colt's contract is a big problem?

What happens? You either keep both of them because they're on the cheap or you cut the one who underperforms. It's not as if NFL contracts are guaranteed, Jimmy. Plus, no one would be losing a roster spot until the 2013 season at the earliest anyway. McCoy's contract would only be his base salary since Cleveland would eat the signing bonus, and Orton's signing bonus suggests that he'll be here for two seasons (2012 & 2013) before it's cost effective to release him as a cap casualty. I don't see the problem here.

I ddint think his contract that low, go ahead and pick him up and make him your 3rd with hopes of trading him down the line, I like orton as our backup Smile

I like Orton as our backup too, but I wouldn't say no to picking up McCoy because he'd be so cheap. His contract was very small because he was a 3rd round pick and we wouldn't be on the hook for any of the incentives or guaranteed money. We'd literally only be responsible for the the league minimum base salary for the remaining years.

No interest in trading a pick for a #3 quarterback who doesn't have starter upside. We've been good with our late round picks. That's more valuable.

I'd consider signing him if he were cut.

You know it would only cost like a 7th rounder for him, right?

Don't see the point. Romo and Orton are going to be around for the next 3 yrs. min. Granted, it wouldn't be giving up much, but what's the point? Romo and Orton aren't going anywhere for the couple years.

Save the pick and hope for the best. McCoy just isn't worth it, imo.
