So they still need a QB?

I'd make sense for them to keep Quinn and have the two compete for the starting spot.

He is making that but payed out by 2 teams! Seriously his agent needs to be agent of the year with those numbers.


Jake Delhomme's two-year contract with the Browns will pay him $7 million in the first season.
Delhomme, who was benched last season after compiling an 8:18 TD-to-INT ratio, will all in all collect $19.7 million in 2010 because the Panthers are on the hook to pay him $12.7M per his old contract. We very much doubt that any other team would've paid the 35-year-old $7 million for one season, but the Browns' decision to do so indicates Delhomme is the favorite to start over Seneca Wallace. At least until Wallace severely outplays him in August.

My understanding is that when Delhomme was released by the Panthers, the Panthers automatically paid him $12.6m. Now Cleveland is paying him a new contract worth up to $6m dollars.

Wow. Unbelievable. Orton must be looking forward to UFA.

Right except for that they also signed Wallace who is a Holmgren guy.

Word from ESPN is Quinn has his Cleveland residence for sale (ala Jay Cutler). Quinn is as good as gone.

Yes! That means he can't sign with the Broncos.
