Should we cross another name off of the Vikings’ list of possible quarterback targets? The Browns are demanding “a high draft pick” in order to part with veteran Josh McCown, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
When the Cowboys were showing interest in McCown earlier this summer, it was said that the Browns were seeking a fourth-round selection while Dallas was unwilling to part with anything higher than a sixth-round choice. Neither side budged and the talks quickly cooled off. Now, it sounds like that asking price may have increased a bit.
The Browns are not inclined to trade McCown since they are worried about RGIII suffering another major injury. McCown has also been acting a mentor towards RGIII and rookie Cody Kessler. The exact asking price on McCown is unknown, but Cabot writes that it is likely more than the Vikings are willing to pay.
