While the Browns continue to address other areas of the team, the one looming question mark continues to be revolving around who will be under center for the 2010 season and beyond. The Browns recently traded for quarterback Seneca Wallace, but it is unknown what his role will be with the team at this stage. Recently releasing Derek Anderson, the Browns do not appear done with their quarterback transactions.
Following yesterday’s rumor that the Browns may entertain trading quarterback Brady Quinn, the player has responded to the media by saying that he would welcome a move if the team is not sold on his abilities to be a starting quarterback.
Veteran quarterback Jake Delhomme is reportedly making his way to Cleveland to spend time with Mike Holmgren, Tom Heckert and Eric Mangini. Delhomme is a former Pro Bowl quarterback that has appeared in the post season multiple times, making the Super Bowl once. His career record as a starter is 58-40, but his more recent seasons have been nowhere near those that had him featured as one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL some time ago.
Delhomme signed a five-year contract last season but was released by the Panthers just weeks ago following a season that saw him go 4-7 with eight touchdowns and 18 interceptions; a career-high mark in only 11 games played.
Regarding Quinn, multiple reports have surfaced regarding the opinion of the Browns front office. Recently, team president Mike Holmgren was quoted saying that he was still unsure about the future of the position.
Other names that continue to be linked to the Browns include Philadelphia’s Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb. In talking with the Seattle Seahawks, it is reported that Philadelphia is asking for a first-round draft choice for Kolb. Mike Holmgren has traded first-round picks for quarterbacks in the past, but it is unknown what value Holmgren places on available quarterbacks at this stage.
