McCoy Eager to Get Started

Browns' second-year QB was interviewed on Cleveland's WKNR on Tuesday and said he is ready and excited to get this season started.

After wrapping up ‘Camp Colt,' the Browns second-year quarterback Colt McCoy is eagerly waiting for the lockout to end and to get back to Berea to get ready for the 2011 season.

"I want to pat the guys on the back as we had between 30-40 guys working together for over three days," said McCoy on WKNR ESPN Cleveland radio on Tuesday. "We did lot of 7-on-7 stuff and team drills."

It was the first time that defensive players took part in the voluntary workouts. The camp was held at the University of Texas in Austin.

McCoy said the Browns have a lot to do in catching up as the season approaches because of the lockout.

"The challenging part, as a team, we have a new head coach, a new offense, a new defensive coordinator," he said. "But, it was a great start with the guys. We've made it a priority to get together and to get to know one another. I feel really good about that."

McCoy said he has a golden opportunity in the offense that new coach Pat Shurmur is bringing to the team. McCoy said he plans to take full advantage of it.

"My only goal is to win," McCoy said. "I ran this system a lot in college, but I have a long way to go. I'm excited to work with Coach (Shurmur). I really like what he did (with the Rams), what he stands for and the West Coast Offense. I'm excited to be in it and couldn't ask for more. Now, we have to go get it."

McCoy is going to be in Cleveland this weekend for his football camp July 16-17 at Strongsville High School.

"I can't wait to get back to Cleveland and hopefully get started soon."
