Texas Longhorns alum Colt McCoy is still in the NFL.
Yes, he’s still in the NFL. You didn’t read that wrong.
Currently, McCoy is the backup quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, where he filled in over the weekend for Oklahoma Sooners alum Kyler Murray. McCoy went 22-of-26 on the day for 249 yards and one touchdown, and he plugged in an additional 23 rushing yards.
As they say, legends never die. They only remain backups in the NFL.
