Browns release QB Jake Delhomme
The person spoke anonymously because the Browns have not announced their plans.
The 36-year-old quarterback didn't play much in 2010 after the Browns signed him following his release by Carolina. He helped develop Colt McCoy, then a rookie who became Cleveland's starter.
Delhomme completed 93 of 149 for 872 yards, with two touchdowns and seven interceptions. He was 2-2 as a starter.
Delhomme was scheduled to make $5.4 million in base salary.
Delhomme led the Panthers to the 2003 NFC title; they lost to New England in the Super Bowl.
The story was first reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
