    Colt McCoy Traded to 49ers

    We knew that Colt McCoy did not have a future with the Cleveland Browns. We didn't know whether the Browns could find any team willing to give up something for him.

    The San Francisco 49ers gave us the answer on Monday.

    McCoy is headed to San Francisco in a trade, according to CBS Sports, the Associated Press, and USA Today. The 49ers had a lot of extra picks this year, and we would be surprised if they gave up anything but a late-round selection for McCoy. (It may even be a conditional pick.)

    McCoy immediately steps in as the favorite to backup Colin Kaepernick in 2013, although he'll have to compete with incumbent Scott Tolzien. The news comes on the same day that Matt Flynn got dealt to the Oakland Raiders, with Carson Palmer expected to move to Arizona shortly.

    In McCoy, the 49ers gets a young backup with 21 games of starting experience. The Texas product looked promising as a rookie, averaging 7.1 yards-per-attempt. In theory, he has the mobility to run whatever Jim Harbaugh wants in case of emergency.

    McCoy certainly landed in the right spot to rehabilitate his career. Alex Smith would agree.
