Browns trade Quinn to Broncos
Brady Quinn has a new home.
The Cleveland Browns have traded their former starting quarterback to the Denver Broncos. In return, the Browns will receive running back Peyton Hillis and two conditional draft picks.
The teams announced the trade Sunday and said the deal is pending physicals. FOXSports.com was the first to report the trade.
The move comes one day after the Browns signed free-agent quarterback Jake Delhomme to a two-year deal and less than a week after the team traded for Seneca Wallace.
Quinn, the 22nd overall selection in the 2007 draft, played in just 10 games for the Browns in 2009, completing 52.2 percent of his passes while throwing for eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.
"I appreciate everything Brady did for us last year and in his three seasons with the Cleveland Browns,” coach Eric Mangini said in a statement. "He is professional in the way he goes about doing his job and worked extremely hard at every aspect of his game. I wish him the best of success in Denver.”
