Sorry if it's been posted elsewhere:

Broncos Fleece Browns:
The Denver Broncos have made some strange moves over the past two years (See Jay Cutler).

But they made a good one Sunday.

They acquired a potential franchise quarterback in Brady Quinn for essentially a ham sandwich. That's not to disrespect running back Peyton Hillis, the man the Broncos traded to the Browns to get Quinn. But let's face it: The asking price was reasonable.

The Browns also get a sicth-round pick in this year's draft and a conditional 2012 pick, which is probably late-round selection that can improve if Quinn becomes a starter.

If he does, the Broncos fleeced the Browns.

Quinn has had some tough moments with the Browns, but he's never really been given much to work with or been truly given the keys the car.

He will compete with Kyle Orton in Denver, and here's a guess that Quinn pushes Orton for the starting job.

The one knock on Quinn is that he didn't let it go last season, that he wouldn't make the chance throw. He has to do more of that. But once he gets around a better offense, I think he’ll do more of that.

I still can't believe the Browns are willing to play with Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace. Did they watch tape from 2009?

Unless they draft a guy in the first round, the Browns will be a disaster in 2010

Why did Broncos cut Davis?
Posted on: March 11, 2010 6:45 pm

The Denver Broncos have done some good things this off-season. Adding defensive linemen Jamal Williams, Jarvis Green and Justin Bannon will help their run defense.

So why did they release starting linebacker Andra Davis Thursday?

Davis is good against the run, but he's always struggled when matched in pass coverage. The Broncos need more athletic ability inside, which is why they probably cut Davis loose.

I think it's a strange move. Davis was a productive player for them last season. If you're trying to improve the run defense, why let him go?

Then again, this Broncos regime doesn't do things we expect. After all, they did trade Jay Cutler.

Two cutler mentions in a single article. Rub it out, Pete.

That's what I thought too but Peter King said the same thing( 6th this year) and I heard this year on Sirius NFL radio this morning.

BTW Sirius radio says we got an absolute steal with the Quinn deal.

How about bacon and egg sandwiches?

A good point from the article was the one knock on Quinn was he didn't "let it go", meaning he wasn't firing the ball all over the place. It's a valid criticism.

OTOH, he wasn't an INT machine either, which is often the other side of the coin.

We got a decent backup QB for a guy that was on the bubble and two very late round picks at less than a million for two years. Given Orton's injury history it was a good call especially considering how badly Simms choked.

Not a bad deal, but the real test is going to come next year when Quinn should be ready to compete for the starting job.

the thing with Quinn not airing it out in my opinion is similar to the reasons of Orton not airing it out much.

With Quinn there was bad protection and pretty piss poor playmakers to even bother gambling.

While with Orton there was no time to find a deep route and let it rip.

I thought it was a conditional 6th in the 2011 draft...

It's a good deal. Quinn does have some upside. I have to say I ragged on Quinn some in Baja's thread, currently on page two, but to get Quinn for basically nothing I like it. He's an OK NFL starter with some upside.

I like the fact he's not an INT machine. I don't have a problem with QB's that are smart enough to be careful with the ball when they're overmatched.
