Earlier this month, the Panthers released longtime franchise quarterback Jake Delhomme. People cried, and Delhomme hit the market. Now the rumors of the last few days have been validated, as Delhomme has been picked up by the Cleveland Browns. ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news.
Cleveland landed its second QB of the week, this time Jake Delhomme. Browns and Delhomme agree to a two-year deal.
The Browns have already obtained the services of quarterback Seneca Wallace. The order of the team's quarterback depth chart isn't clear yet, but one thing is clear: Brady Quinn's future is unclear. Does that make any sense?
This is worth repeating, from our Browns blog Dawgs By Nature:
There's no way that Quinn would be on the roster, let alone the starter, if Seneca Wallace and Delhomme were also on the roster. With one of the two, you could make the case that they would be a backup. One of them isn't going to be a third stringer though, and if we're exploring options beyond Wallace, then it wouldn't be too surprising to see Quinn follow in the footsteps of Derek Anderson not too long from now.
Here are Delhomme's 2009 stats with the Panthers:
|2009 - Jake Delhomme||11||59.4||178||321||55.5||2015||183.2||6.3||8||18||17||60||5.5||3.5||0||23||187|
