The Keeping of Quinn a Great Offseason Move?

Mike Florio of SportingNews.com wrote the top 10 moves of the offseason, and has the Browns keeping QB Brady Quinn at number two. Read below:

2. Cleveland Browns keep Quinn

The new regime in Cleveland has no attachment to quarterback Brady Quinn, the man for whom the Browns gave up a high second-round pick in 2007 and a first-rounder in 2008.

But that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t give him a chance to secure their affections.

Quinn has looked solid during his limited opportunities, and his contract remains reasonable. He’s never had a chance to compete for the position of Week 1 starter, and in his third NFL season there’s a chance he could give the franchise the lift it so badly needs.

So while coach Eric Mangini and GM George Kokinis have nothing to prove by keeping him around, they’ve got nothing to lose, either.

    The guy looks way b etter than DA and Da has had opportunity and time to mature; I say give BQ the same opportunities now in a whole season and watch him flourish. If for some reason he does not, start looking for a replacement. But i bet he’ll do more than fine.

  2. Clayton says:

    The “lift” comment is a good observation. We saw that last season when Quinn came in – putting performance aside for the moment, it was clear that he excited and added a spark to the Team.

  3. Dennis Thompson says:

    Any “spark” can be quickly extinguished with lack of performance. That being said, Brady needs the opportunity to play. There are some pretty young QBs out there who flourished early under a lot of pressure. Let this guy play. If it works out, then we get a lot more options and some good news around here for a change.

    Could you imagine the fan outrage if they would have let Quinn go. Quinn is the new face of this franchise. There is no way DA will start over Quinn. BQ is alot smarter than DA in my opinion. Who is to say that DA has a stroner arm than Quinn? He still can’t hit the dump offs to the backs and short slants over the middle. What good is arm strength doing there? I think Quinn is going to show his stuff this year.
