He wanted Quinn for Cutler and the Browns backed out, he tried for him again at the draft last year, he thinks Quinn is his guy.

I just don't know why you give up anything for a guy who may get released. They must really like him. At least we know now we won't be drafting a QB high.

Doubt he'd be released. They'd probably keep him for the next year at the least if this didn't happen first.

At least we've got the market cornered on QBs who perform homo-erotic humor on their friends.

Brady Quinn (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10466) will get a chance to start over in Denver. Whether he'll get to start is up in the air.
<!--INLINE MUG-->

Quinn
<!--END INLINE MUG-->
The Broncos acquired the former first-round draft pick from the Cleveland Browns (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=cle) for fullback Peyton Hillis (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11461), a 2011 sixth-round draft pick and a conditional pick in 2012.
The teams announced the trade Sunday and said the deal is pending physicals.
Ostensibly, Quinn will compete with Kyle Orton (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8520) for the Broncos' starting job, although coach Josh McDaniels was unavailable Sunday to comment on the trade, according to a team spokesman.
The Broncos have insisted they're happy with Orton, a workmanlike leader who wasn't allowed to throw downfield much last season, when he led the Broncos to a 6-2 start before a 2-6 finish kept them out of the playoffs for a fourth straight season.
That's the longest drought in the 26 years Pat Bowlen has owned the team. Bowlen recently said he likes Orton as his quarterback but would like to see the Broncos draft a passer next month.
Those plans may now be on hold.
The Broncos lost confidence in Simms last season, so it would appear he's out of the picture with the acquisition of Quinn.
Last week, the Broncos offered Orton, a restricted free agent, a first-round tender offer that would pay him $2.261 million this season.
Like hundreds of other players caught up in the league's labor issues, however, Orton is expected to boycott his team's start of offseason training, which starts Monday for the Broncos.

Hillis will also be getting a fresh start.
He went from starting tailback under coach Mike Shanahan in 2008 to forgotten fullback under McDaniels, who adamantly refused to use him even though rookie running back Knowshon Moreno (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=12516) frequently came up short in short-yardage situations.
McDaniels insisted that the problems were on the line and not in the backfield and that he'd rather give the ball to his top draft pick. With Spencer Larsen (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11417) banged up for much of the season, McDaniels said his hands were often tied because he didn't want to risk running Hillis, who was often his only available fullback.
Hillis had just 13 carries for 53 yards last season. He was inactive for two games, once to attend his grandmother's funeral in November. He also returned four kicks.
The 240-pound bone-rattler energized the Broncos in 2008 when he emerged during an injury epidemic among the team's tailbacks and ran for a team-high 343 yards and scored six touchdowns before tearing his right hamstring against Kansas City in December.
So Hillis gets another chance in Cleveland while Quinn tries to jump-start his career in Denver.
