Jake Delhomme To Start For Cleveland Browns?
After the Carolina Panthers parted ways with their long time quarterback Jake Delhomme, many figured he would land somewhere else. Sure enough, the Cleveland Browns signed Delhomme to a two year contract.
The first year of his contact will pay him seven million and with that kind of money it looks like the Browns will probably make Delhomme the starting quarterback over Seneca Wallace.
Wallace was acquired in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks this past week because he has been in the West Cost system his entire career.
Having Delhomme and Wallace on the team all but guarantees young quarterback Brady Quinn is going to be traded. While Quinn didn’t have success with the Browns in his career, I do believe the Browns are making a mistake.
A mistake that is if Delhomme can’t bounce back and play close to the way we saw him in years past.
More Money More Problems
As the Panthers found out last year, just because you pay a player a bunch of money in the offseason, that doesn’t mean they will perform in the regular season. Unless Delhomme can bounce back, the Browns are going to struggle in the passing game and will probably look for another quarterback next year.
This lack of production would hurt second year receiver Mohamed Massaquoi’s chances of helping fantasy owners this season and in the future.
Don’t even think about drafting a Browns’ quarterback this year as they should be one of the more worthless quarterbacks to have in fantasy.
Massaquoi is still an interesting receiver and is worth a late round flair. If the kid figures it out he should help your team this season. If not, then he would be an easy player to scrap off your team.
