Browns quarterback Colt McCoy spent a couple of days during the NFL's lockout learning the West Coast offense from Brett Favre, McCoy confirmed today through a team spokesman.

McCoy reached out to Favre, who learned the West Coast system from Browns President Mike Holmgren during their days together with the Green Bay Packers, for guidance. He visited Favre's home in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

"Since I couldn't get coached, it was a great opportunity to pick the brain of a guy who’s played in the system for 20 years," McCoy said through the spokesman. "It was a chance for me to get a lot of questions answered. We worked on footwork, progressions, reads and things like that. It was definitely a positive trip."
