Texas Longhorns alum Colt McCoy – one of the program’s all-time greatest quarterbacks – isn’t ready to walk away from the NFL, according to a recent On3 report on McCoy’s future.

“I love the NFL. I love the Xs and Os. I love preparing, breaking teams down, matchups. That’s really what I love about the NFL. So I’m not saying no to playing,” McCoy said. “Unfortunately I had elbow surgery last January. Battled through it. Had a good training camp. Ended up getting released by the Cardinals. I just wanted to make sure my elbow was better than what it was when I ended with the Cardinals. It didn’t feel great spending a lot of time on rehab.”

McCoy added, “If the right opportunity comes up next year, I might jump on it. But I’ve really enjoyed my time with my family, my kids. … I’m in a really good place.”
