Default Brady Quinn on the way out??

Quinn the odd man out?
8:39
AM ETBrady Quinn | Broncos Top Email Whether or not the Denver Broncos made a smart decision in trading some draft picks to move up to grab Tim Tebow, it leaves the team with somewhat of a surplus at the QB position. Kyle Orton is likely penciled in as the starter, while Tebow, Brady Quinn and Tom Brandstater sit behind him.

Regarding this crowd, Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports wrote recently that it would appear that Quinn is suddenly the odd man out. Robinson notes that in order to properly develop, Tebow will have to get snaps in practice, and most No. 3 QBs don't get too many snaps in practice. Robinson also points out that the Broncos acquired Quinn for very little -- Peyton Hillis, who was rumored to be on the verge of being cut anyway, and late-round picks in 2011 and 2012 -- but invested a great deal in Tebow.

If Quinn is released soon, we know a certain team in Western New York that might be interested, and we also have a feeling that his former college coach, Charlie Weis, might show some interest in bringing him in as a backup to Matt Cassel for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Clady replacement options

11:52AM ET
Ryan Clady | Broncos

Top Email


We learned on Wednesday night that Ryan Clady's patellar tendon was only partially torn -- according to the Denver Post -- which gives him a better shot at returning in three months, as ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports Clady's been telling people. ESPN sports injury expert Stephania Bell told our AFC West blogger Bill Williamson that the timeline we've been hearing (three to four months) "may be optimistic," and that even after his return, he won't be fully recovered yet.
The loss of one of the league's elite left tackles will strike a devastating blow to the Denver Broncos' offensive line, but there are some options available, albeit none nearly as good as Clady. Flozell Adams was released a while back, and still hasn't landed with a new team. It would make sense for the Broncos to at least have him in for a workout. But there are other non-Bronco options as well, and both of them were restricted free agents this offseason. The first is Jared Gaither, who the Baltimore Ravens were open to trading before and during the draft. The second is Jammal Brown, and we touched on that situation on Wednesday. The problem with acquiring Gaither or Brown is that they would likely want a long-term extension, and that wouldn't make too much sense, given the fact that Clady will be back eventually.
The other option is to promote from within. Second-round pick Zane Beadles is expected to compete to play RT for the Broncos this season, and it's possible they slide 2009's RT, Ryan Harris, over to LT. Certainly not an ideal situation, but one that the team might have to explore.


Football Outsiders

Devastating loss
"If this is confirmed -- and it appears to be -- it's catastrophic for Denver fans. Clady is one of the league's most valuable properties, an elite left tackle playing on a rookie contract, and the most important player the Broncos had on offense, even before the Brandon Marshall deal. Barring a miracle, Clady will be out for the year; about the best the Broncos can hope for would be a long stay on the Physically Unable to Perform list and a return in late October. The injury also has deleterious long-term effects on performance and has a good chance of reoccurrence. The injury will force the Broncos to change their entire offensive scheme, keeping tight ends and running backs in to block far more frequently, and place even more pressure on a group of wide receivers that are alternately inexperienced or over-the-hill." - Bill Barnwell

If Kevin O'Connell can get traded for some picks we sure as hell can do the same with Brady Quinn for the Bills.

Jesus, football outsiders is determined to have me take my own life. For every article that says "it was a 50% tear and you're looking at 3 to 4 month's recovery" they're like "hey PRBronco, here's a bottle of Jack, a razor, and a Staind CD".

We should hang on to Quinn and let him play some quarters in pre-season and then wait for some desperate team to call up and make a deal.

Yeah, thats a pretty dramatic take. And the Quinn portion is 100 percent speculation.

I really hope that Football Outsiders take was written before finding out it was a partial tear as opposed to a full tear. OP, was there a date/time stamp on it?

IMO, it would be the worst thing that happened to this franchise since TD got injured.

Quinn is the buffer between Orton and Tebow. He'll be retained (unless Brandstater beats him out) even if he doesn't start because we don't want to be one Orton injury away from having to play Tebow full time in year one.

Josh will get Tebow more than enough reps. Hell, Tebow could run the scout team while doing that because its more about his mechanics than anything else, which can be corrected in that kind of setting. That'll also give him a wide array of systems to look at over the course of the year letting us see what parts of our opponents offense he does best in (the times in practice he tears our own defense up).

There are a lot of options on how to get guys reps. McDaniels will find a way to manage it.

If the McDaniels plans to use Tebow at all during a game, it means by rule he already the 2nd string QB. So that leaves Quinn and Brandstater in the emergency QB role on game-day.

At this point might as well trade Orton, start Quinn and have packages for Tebow, if that future McDaniels wants.

Oh yeah I forgot about that rule. Still, if Quinn pans out and proves to be just as serviceable as Orton (I'm keeping my expectations low for both, but I don't think either one of them sucks by any means) it's not a problem, as ESPN seems to wish it was. Neither of them makes so much money that we HAVE to move one right away, it just makes good trade bait, like Matt Schaub, Matt Hasselbeck...Matt Cassell. Wait wtf is going on here? I just noticed that as I was typing it. Maybe we should bring back Matt Mauck?
