Browns trade Brady Quinn to Denver for FB Peyton Hillis and 2 draft picks

Brady Quinn will finally get the fresh start he deserves and probably wanted without saying it out loud.

On Sunday, the Browns traded their on-again, Off-again starting quarterback to the Denver Broncos, in exchange for fullback Peyton Hillis, a 2011 sixth-round draft pick and a conditional pick in 2012.

The question is, will head coach Josh McDaniels let Quinn compete for the starting  job, now being occupied by Kyle Orton.

Quinn leaves Cleveland with a 3-9 record in 12 starts after he was drafted with 22nd pick in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft out of Notre Dame.

The Dublin, Ohio native and the brother-in law of Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk, was very popular with Browns fans who felt the team should’ve sunk or swam with Quinn because he was an Ohio native and a Browns fan growing up. The fans didn’t care for the team switching him and Derek Anderson at a key position.

In 2009, Quinn completed 53 percent of his passes last season for 1,339 yards with 8 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. His QB rating was 67.3.

The Browns have a fullback in Hillis who is full of potential. He is a 240-pound bone-crushing runner who will run over and through would-be tacklers. He and Jerome Harrison, who led the Browns in rushing with 862 yards, will make a nice backfield.

New York Jets sign LaDainian Tomlinson

The New York Jets and the Big Apple have opened their welcoming arms to LaDainian Tomlinson.

The former Chargers star has signed a two-year contract worth about $5.2 million. The Jets signed the aging star to the NFL’s top-ranked offense of 172.2 yards per game to replace Thomas Jones, who was cut and later signed by Kansas City.

The Jets reached the AFC championship game last season, eliminating the Chargers and Tomlinson in the semi-finals.

The 2006 NFL MVP chose New York over Minnesota. The 31-year-old ranks eighth on the NFL’s career rushing list with 12, 490 yards.

Tomlinson chose the New York Jets for another reason. He is familiar with the Jets’ style of offense and coordiantor Brian Schottenheimer, who was the Chargers quarterbacks coach from 2002-2005.

The Jets have already begun to sell $80.00 green and white replica jerseys on their website.
