Colt McCoy will start over as a backup in San Francisco.

McCoy, who became expendable when Cleveland signed veteran free-agent quarterback Jason Campbell last week, was traded to the 49ers for two draft picks.

The Browns said they received two “undisclosed” draft choices, but a person familiar with the deal told the Associated Press the team got a fifth- and seventh-round pick in this month's NFL Draft in exchange for McCoy and Cleveland's sixth-round pick.

Report: Rodgers, Pack $2 million apart

NFL.com reported that the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers are about $2 million apart per season on a contract extension. Rodgers has reportedly been offered an annual salary of about $21 million. Reports said Rodgers' deal likely would be for six years and would include a record $60 million in guaranteed money.
