QB Brady Quinn Traded To Denver Broncos
With a trade for Seneca Wallace and the free agent signing of Jake Delhomme it was inevitable that the Browns would trade away quarterback Brady Quinn. Understanding the Browns’ situation it is easy to understand why they traded Quinn away to the Broncos for full back Peyton Hillis and future late round picks.
While I can see why the Browns traded away Quinn, if Delhomme can’t play at a respectable level, the Browns may regret that they parted ways with a potential steady quarterback.
Either way Quinn will now have to beat out Chris Simms and company to win the No.2 quarterback job behind Kyle Orton. Given Quinn’s ability and the fact that Coach Josh McDaniels is a good developer of quarterbacks, Quinn should be able to accomplish this feat in the offseason.
Quinn may win a backup job this season, he may not have much to work with if he finds his way into the lineup without star receiver Brandon Marshall. The Broncos are projected to trade Marshall this offseason and it’s unknown if they will have a decent passing game without him.
If Marshall does leave this team than no quarterback in Denver will be worth looking at in fantasy football for 2010.
