Default Quinn still in the mix?

http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/04/04/brow...rade-qb-quinn/

Browns still could trade QB Quinn to Broncos

Even though the Jay Cutler sweepstakes is over, Cleveland Browns QB Brady Quinn still might end up in Denver.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Quinn could be just the quarterback Broncos coach Josh McDaniels wanted all along. At Notre Dame, Quinn played for former New England Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, who has McDaniels’ ear when it comes to quarterback talent.

More from the Plain Dealer:

Trading the No. 18 pick to the Browns for Quinn (who was taken 22nd in 2007) makes so much sense for the Broncos, I can’t believe it hasn’t happened yet. They get a young quarterback schooled in McDaniels’ system whom the new coach can develop and appoint as the face of his team going forward. Denver also saves its No. 12 pick for much-needed defensive help.

I was just coming here to post this, does this make sense to anyone?

I am all for competition in camp but seriously, Quinn won't want to be here to be a backup again

We can get him for a 2nd. If they want a first they can go to hell.

I'm cool with going in and seeing how Orton and Simms play out.

Sanchez might be there at 12.

I say we don't even draft a QB, FFS let's see how Orton does

Can and probably will be renegotiated.

If we were going to go after Quinn I don't know why we'd take Orton in the trade unless they just plan to cut him. We don't need 3 QB's on the roster. And I sure wouldn't want to give up 18 for him.

Exactly. Forget paying MORE for a guy who was injured, and played pathetic against the Bills and Texans... I mean PATHETIC. Sub 50% and 40% completion % and INT's.

Not for the #18. He hasnt proven enough. He was drafted in the 20s on promise and he hasnt converted enough promise to accomplishment to this point. 18 is too much to give for him. I would consider trading Scheffler for him, straight up. They need a TE.

Matt Cassel was traded for a 2nd round pick. Why the **** would we trade a 1st for Quinn.

No.

McDaniel's got the quarterback that he wanted (which seems to be anyone but Jay Cutler at this point), so let him work with it. We have far more pressing needs that McDaniel's has taken his eye off of. Mainly D-Line and Safety depth.

Definitely not for #18. And honestly after reading up on Orton and considering the talent the Broncos have on offense I think they may be okay with Orton or Simms as a stop gap.

I hate articles like this. This is just speculation and there is nothing except for oh he played for Weis.

I found this interesting

CLEVELAND -- One reason the Browns didn't swing a deal with Denver is that former Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler didn't want to play for Browns coach Eric Mangini, the Chicago Sun-Times reported today. The paper, citing a source, said that Cutler's agent, Bus Cook, made it clear when talks began that Cutler refused to play for Mangini and that he feared Cutler wouldn't report to the Browns.

He's a pompous ass and a lousy football player. I'd rather trade for that Brown that punched him in his face.

It just shows you how pus cook is totally controlling cutler and here I thought the agent worked for the client. Thats obviously not the case!

No more QB's please. Lets focus on defense now and see if McD can coach up Simms or preferably Orton into a solid NFL QB like he did with Cassel. If it doesn't work out, we draft a QB next season because if it doesn't work out we will probably be looking at a pretty high draft pick next season. Not to mention we'll have the Bears #1 pick next year in our back pockets to trade up with if need be.

If it doesnt work out, we should take Cody with our high pick and then either a FA or someone like this:
