So the Brady Quinn era has officially come to an end. The trade to Denver has ended his short and unfulfilled career in Cleveland, and I have mixed feelings about it all. As I previously posted only a couple of days ago, I felt Quinn still had a future with this team and that the organisation should have stuck with him a little longer to give him a legitimate chance at being a success with the Browns. However, Holmgren, Heckert and Mangini decided to end Quinn's tenure as Cleveland's QB of the future, resulting in his swap to the Broncos for fullback Peyton Hillis and a couple of future draft picks. I wish him the best of luck in Denver, and hopefully he can beat Orton this summer for the starting job. Craig at Waiting For Next Year has provided a good analysis of what this move means for our beloved Browns.
The Browns have certainly been busy in the last few weeks, and I don't expect the changes to stop just yet. Kamerion Wimbley has been traded to Oakland for a 3rd round pick in this year's draft (apparently), which isn't too big of a loss, with the emergence of Matt Roth last year.
It's certainly going to be odd watching the Browns start the 2010 season. There's a lot of new faces in town already, and with the draft creeping closer by the day there will be plenty more. Expect some more moving and shaking Browns fans.
