Source: Delhomme to visit Browns
By Adam Schefter
One day after the Browns released quarterback Derek Anderson, the team was preparing to host former Carolina Panthers QB Jake Delhomme for a visit -- an indication that Brady Quinn could follow Anderson out the door.
A league source said Delhomme was scheduled to visit the Browns on Thursday, the strongest evidence yet that the Browns are considering moving forward without Quinn.
Cleveland has offered Quinn to other teams, league sources said Wednesday. Not only are the Browns looking into trading Quinn, but they also are investigating other quarterback options as well.
The Browns are exploring the acquisition of another quarterback through trade, free agency or the draft, according to multiple league sources. These talks come at a time when Cleveland already has added former Seattle backup Seneca Wallace.
Should one of these scenarios for another quarterback work out as expected, then Cleveland would have a surplus of quarterbacks, including Wallace and Brett Ratliff. That would leave little room for Quinn, a former first-round draft pick out of Notre Dame who has struggled to succeed in Cleveland.
