The two clubs talked trade on Thursday, but the Cowboys’ rejected the Browns’ proposal, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Werder reported that the Browns prefer to keep Josh McCown and attached a high price, one that the Cowboys aren’t willing to pay at this time.
On Thursday, McCown made it clear he wants to remain a Brown. He was a big Cowboys fan as a child.
“Obviously the Cowboys, if you grew up in Texas, is near and dear to everybody’s heart,” McCown said. “But once you cross over into the business portion of this life, those allegiances kind of fly out the window and you have a job to do.
“For me, my job and my heart is here and doing everything I can to help the Cleveland Browns be good. So that’s what I’m about. And like I’ve told you guys before, you spend five minutes in this city and it’s easy to be all-in, because of how the people feel about this team.”
