Report: 49ers looking to trade Colt McCoy (Update)

From Ian Rapoport comes the not-very-surprising-at-all news that Colt McCoy is on the 49ers’ trading block:

McCoy was brought in just this offseason to compete to become Colin Kaepernick’s top back-up. But he has failed to separate himself from the pack in two disappointing preseason games. There was no bigger clue that the 49ers were dissatisfied with their back-up quarterback situation than when they signed Seneca Wallace earlier this week, giving them five bodies at the position.

Jim Harbaugh previously said all five quarterbacks could see playing time in Sunday’s exhibition vs. the Vikings.

UPDATE: Aaaaaand just like that, Jim Harbaugh after Sunday’s game announced McCoy has won the back-up job. For now.
