sit there and waste his life :-b


wedll rodgers signed for 5 years for 7.7 mil, Quinn signed for 5 years for 20.2 million and got 8 million guaranteed ... slight difference there even though they were both drafted late in the 1st round (brady 22, rodgers 24). derek anderson's year 3 of his contract might be Quinn's year 4. My guess is that will be a lot of money to sink into the QB position. If they keep both, I would expect DA to be traded before that 3rd season. I don't know the breakdown of how much Brady will make each year, but it usually escalates upwards with the biggest chunks being at the end of the contract.

The difference with Rivers is that he was paid much higher as he was a top draft pick. Brees was a restricted free agent. They let Rivers have another year on the bench before just letting Brees go. They obviously have no intention of just letting DA play this year (restricted free agent) and letting him go next.

I don't really think you can compare any of those situations. I am agreeing however, I think at least this year, Quinn will sit on the bench. MAYBE even the next year. However that 3rd year, that will be a lot of money wrapped up at QB and I think they try to trade Quinn or Anderson at that point. Just my thoughts...

As a Browns fan I hope, that for right now at least, the Browns hang onto both of them. Anderson tailed off toward the end of last year, and you never know when the injury bug may strike, so in the short term I think young Mr. Quinn makes for a nice little insurance policy. If Anderson can repeat his '07 success next season then maybe you think about dealing Brady, but for now I'd stand pat.

I think they are going to sit him until he gets a more wholesome looking escort...er...girlfriend. (For those who remember the draft day chatroom hilarity)

He has a decent chance to start for the Browns by the end of the season. The Browns made great strides last season and now will have the pressure to repeat and improve on that performance. Mr. Anderson didn't seem to handle the pressure down the stretch, evidence by his fading in the playoff push.
So Anderson falls apart or gets hurt at some point and Brady Quin is inn.

For the Browns fans I sincerely hope that Anderson can repeat his success and Quinn sits.

Brady Quinn-QB- Browns Feb. 24 - 10:58 am et


Brady Quinn costs the Browns only $2 million per season as long as he's a backup.
Quinn won't hit incentives riding the pine. The Akron Beacon Journal strongly suggests that owner Randy Lerner wants Quinn to play, but Romeo Crennel and GM Phil Savage think they can get one more year out of Derek Anderson.

Think they can get one more year out of Anderson? He's only 24 years old. :-?

If Anderson turns into an elite quarterback this year, the Browns will trade Quinn. Otherwise, there's no real reason to trade him unless they get a good offer.

The most important part about that blurb is the $2 mil salary. That's definately a manageable amount for a good young back-up/insurance policy, and it makes keeping Quinn more affordable and more plausible than I thought...

I heard this weekend the Browns and Anderson are a long way from a contract. The Browns want something like a 3 year deal with average salaries of 6-7 mil, and Anderson wants 6 years, 68 mil.

They are obviously going to tender him with the highest RFA offer possible, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised if someone offered him a big contract and gave up a first and third round pick for him. It's incredibly hard to find good QBs in this league, and there's got to be at least one team that would take that kind of chance on him.

I'd like to see Anderson in a Bears uniform.... oh, wait - we just re-signed Rex Grossman.

Great. :-{ :-t

It's possible, but I think it would be a big mistake is some one did. He's had one decent season in the NFL, and fell off pretty hard at the end of that. Not nearly enough to warrant that kind of compensation, IMO.
