The Browns signed Jake Delhomme to be their short-term starter.
Jake Delhomme is expected to be the Browns' starting quarterback in 2010.
But after that, it's anyone's guess.
Therefore, Cleveland is feverishly searching for its quarterback of the future this offseason. It's not known how much the 35-year-old Delhomme has left in the tank. So he is merely a stopgap solution for this upcoming season -- albeit a very expensive one at $7 million.
The Browns burned up the phone lines in free agency trying to find the best deal possible. Some rumored names included quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles, although nothing came to fruition.
Now the Browns' primary goal in next month's NFL draft is to find a rookie quarterback to groom. But don't expect it to happen with the No. 7 overall pick, according to Holmgren.
The AFC North blog reported Monday that Cleveland is showing interest in University of Texas quarterback Colt McCoy, who is a projected second-round pick. The Browns will host McCoy for two days on April 12-13. He has an accurate arm that could fit in Cleveland's West Coast-based system.
