How I See It: AFC North Stock Watch
By James Walker
» NFC Stock Watch: East | West | North | South » AFC: East | West | North | South
Brady Quinn, Cleveland Browns quarterback: A year ago, Quinn was the favorite to become Cleveland's starting quarterback. Now it appears Quinn's chances to lead the Browns are diminishing. Cleveland reportedly is shopping Quinn and looking around at several other options. Veteran free-agent quarterback Jake Delhomme is visiting with the Browns Thursday, for example. Considering the poor quarterback play around the league, there should be some interest in Quinn. But there is no chance of the Browns getting the same value it took to bring the former first-round pick to Cleveland.
Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens receiver: Boldin is happy with finally securing a new four-year contract, and the Ravens are happy to finally secure a top-flight receiver. It's a win-win for both parties. The three-time Pro Bowl receiver comes to Baltimore with expectations of taking the Ravens' passing game to another level. But he won't be alone. With the addition of Boldin to go with players such as Joe Flacco, Derrick Mason, Ray Rice, Willis McGahee, Todd Heap, Mark Clayton and Donte' Stallworth, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has a lot of options. Watch out for Boldin and Baltimore's offense next season.
