Cleveland Won’t Go After Eagles Backup QB Kevin Kolb

Disputing a report from Mike Lombardi of the NFL Network, the Browns will not pursue Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb.

With several former Eagles in key positions in the Browns front office, most notably general manager Tom Heckert, the Browns have emerged as a popular post-lockout landing spot for Kolb, who they reportedly attempted to acquire last off-season. During the 2011 NFL Draft, the Browns picked up an extra first-round pick in 2012 from the Atlanta Falcons, which league observers suggest could be dealt to the Eagles for Kolb.

Cleveland used a third-round pick in 2010 on University of Texas quarterback Colt McCoy, who completed 60.8% of his 222 pass attempts for 1,576 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions as a rookie. McCoy has a copy of the new head coach Pat Shurmur’s playbook and organized “Camp Colt”, informal player workouts that have been held in Texas and Berea, Ohio this off-season.
