McCoy, who was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday in a salary cap move, has family plans for the holiday weekend and appears to be willing to take his time about his next team, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson:In addition to the Browns, McCoy has a visit scheduled with the Baltimore Ravens that he intends to honor, but that does not mean that Cleveland general manager John Dorsey dropped the ball Britton Colquitt Jersey , according to Mary Kay Cabot at cleveland.com:McCoy has spent his entire nine-year NFL career with the Buccaneers, so it is not a surprise that he may want to take his time selecting his next employer. And with training camp still almost two months away, there is not a huge sense of urgency to get a deal done now. (The Browns will hold a mandatory minicamp from June 4 through June 6, but it is not hard to see a scenario where McCoy would rather skip that.)As for what he is looking for out of his next team, McCoy is ready to put the losing - Tampa Bay finished last in the NFC South seven times in his nine seasons - behind him, according to Anderson:With the Browns expected to challenge for the AFC North Division and a playoff spot they certainly meet McCoy’s criteria of being a contender. In addition to winning, the Browns offer McCoy the opportunity to play on a defensive line with Myles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi Tyrod Taylor Jersey , Sheldon Richardson and Olivier Vernon. The front four is already on track to be one of the league’s best; the addition of McCoy would definitely take it to another level.The Browns and McCoy may not have been able to agree on a deal, but the door is still open for McCoy to get on board with what the team is building. Team executive shoots down the rumor, but actual schedule release should only be days away." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteDawgs EDTShareTweetShareShareLeaked Browns schedule confirmed as fakeScott R. Galvin-USA TODAY SportsThe Cleveland Browns are and up-and-coming team with an attractive schedule for the 2019 season, making them an ideal selection for a number of primetime games. Per NFL rules, teams can only be scheduled for five primetime games, but a maximum of three teams can be flexed into a sixth appearance on Sunday Night Football. With a schedule that includes division games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, along with the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks Baker Mayfield Color Rush Jersey , it seems likely the Browns will be featured at least three to four times in primetime. But which games will be moved from the traditional 1 p.m. kickoff is still unknown, although a schedule posing as legitimate was leaked on Twitter Friday afternoon:That schedule features the Browns in primetime games Week 1 on Monday night at the New York Jets, Week 2 on Sunday night at home to the Ravens, Week 8 on Sunday night at the Patriots, Week 10 on Monday night at home to the Steelers, and Thanksgiving night at the Arizona Cardinals.So the Browns would be scheduled for the maximum of five primetime games, which seems a bit overly optimistic. Another tip off that this schedule may not be legit is the idea that the NFL would have the Cardinals host a game on Thanksgiving night. Sure enough, late Friday night word came down from Peter John-Baptiste https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Emmanuel-Ogbah-Jersey , the Browns senior vice president of communications, that the schedule is indeed fake:That really should not come as a surprise as the NFL keeps these type of things on lockdown. Last year, the league announced the schedule April 19, which was a Thursday night the week before the NFL Draft. There is no reason to believe they will do anything differently this year, so expect to finally discover just when the Browns are in primetime come next Thursday.
