Browns QB Shuffle May Make Quinn Available

Posted by Mike Wobschall on March 14, 2010 – 2:37 pm

UPDATE: Barely an hour after this entry was posted, the Browns traded QB Brady Quinn to the Denver Broncos in exchange for FB Peyton Hills, a 6th round pick in 2011 and a conditional 2012 draft pick.

Since he was hired as Browns President, Mike Holmgren has given the team’s QB position quite the makeover. He’s acquired Seneca Wallace from Seattle via trade, released Derek Anderson and now he’s signed veteran Jake Delhomme.

All of those moves indicate Holmgren has a plan to fix the QB position in Cleveland, and that plan doesn’t seem to involve Brady Quinn, a 1st round pick from 2007.

Although the Browns don’t seem to value Quinn as much as they once did, the former Notre Dame standout will still have trade value and it wouldn’t be a surprise to learn that Holmgren and the Browns are currently shopping the 25-year-old. So it will be interesting to see what the Browns do with Quinn and which teams might be interested in acquiring him.

The Vikings plan at QB currently revolves around Brett Favre’s decision on whether to play or not in 2010. After Favre, the Vikings also have Tarvaris Jackson Sage Rosenfels on the roster. But Favre’s decision not withstanding and even with Jackson and Rosenfels in the fold, a long-term solution at QB is still an issue for the Vikings.

I don’t know what the Vikings personnel department and coaching staff thinks of Quinn, but I do know that Quinn at least represents an option to consider for the Vikings and any other team in search of or interested in a QB with long-term potential.

With the developments in Cleveland that appear to be leaving Quinn out to dry, watch for rumors and reports to surface linking Quinn with various NFL teams that might have spot for the QB on their roster.

    Please for the love of everything good in the world, DO NOT SIGN HIM!!!! First of all, I think Favre is coming back. Second, if he doesn’t, try rosenfels. Quinn had his chance and he sucked really really bad. Rosenfels hasn’t had a chance and has some experience behind other QBs. Just don’t waste any money on Quinn!

    Dang, I woulda thought he was worth more than that. For the price that the Broncos paid, I definately would have liked to at least give Quinn a shot and forget about resigning Jackson.

    I believe Brett will come back for at least one more year. Sage Rosenfels has watched and learned from Brett for a year. With another year behind Brett I would love to see Sage get a chance to show what he has. We all know that Brett is the best and we have seen that Rodgers is pretty good because he watched and learned from Brett. I personally can’t stand Rodgers because he has never, ever even acknowledged that he was so lucky to learn from Brett. Also, he was able to stay healthy longer because he was on the sideline while Brett did all of the work. We don’t need Quinn. If he was that great, Holmgren would have kept him.

    LT is now a Jet. How soon does Westbrook come in, take a shot to tthe head and is out for the year?

    How much you want to bet that the jersey LT left with after his interview had the Number #4 on it? I bet he got a free signed Favre jersey. That little sneak! ;)

    Hey who thinks that Winfield would be better playing safety and Sapp playing CB? Winfield seems like a guy that should be flying around the backfield. Play him like the Packers used Woods this year. Just a thought…

    Rosenfels has been in the league ten years. He still stinks. Give it up. Jackson has still not been given a real chance. Forget about LORD FARVE, let T-Jack take over.

    Let Jackson take over????
    Are you kidding??!!!!
    I knew he was a lost cause when I watched him run
    out of bounds with the ball in his hand taking a 10
    yard loss—–after being in the league for years!!!!

    If he had played in the saints game it would of been 70 – 0 saints!!!!!

    He is another player that plays nervous and scared!!
    Trade him!!!!!
