49ers trade for backup QB Colt McCoy

The Browns reportedly have traded quarterback Colt McCoy and a sixth round pick to the 49ers for a fifth and seventh round pick.

McCoy started 13 games for the Browns in 2011, a horrible team, and won four. He completed 57.2 percent of his passes and averaged 5.9 yards per attempt. He threw 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

In 2008 at the University of Texas, McCoy’s junior season, he completed 76.7 percent of his passes, averaged 8.9 yards per attempt, threw for 34 TDs and 8 INTs.

McCoy presumably will take Alex Smith’s spot as Colin Kaepernick’s backup. Do you like this acquisition?
