Broncos will "never" trade Brady Quinn

Earlier today, a report emerged that the Jaguars are interested in taking Brady Quinn off the Broncos’ hands.  For the record, the Broncos told Josina Anderson of FOX 31 in Denver that the team has “no interest” in moving Quinn.

Privately, we’re hearing the same thing, in even stronger terms.  Specifically, the Broncos say they’ll “never” trade Quinn.

And why should they?  At $700,000 per year over the next two years, Quinn is a very affordable option at backup quarterback.  His contract spikes in 2011 only if he takes 70 percent of the snaps in 2010. 

That fact could make Quinn inclined to play for a team where he has a chance to trigger the escalator.  But, frankly, he has no say in the matter.

    Yah cause no one but Denver was stupid enough to trade picks for him.

  2. Igottz5onit says: May 4, 2010 4:02 PM

    He has a say if he stops playing like suck.

  3. picksixbolts says: May 4, 2010 4:03 PM

    and the chargers have NEVER been happier

  4. m2karateman says: May 4, 2010 4:06 PM

    …..and they also said they wouldn’t trade Cutler, or Marshall. Denver has become a joke of an organization under McDaniels….aka Kid Ego.

  5. TealDeal says: May 4, 2010 4:06 PM

    Which means he’ll be traded by OTAs…

  6. Pinoy31AP says: May 4, 2010 4:07 PM

    I’m sure they thought the same about jay cutler

  7. this class sucks says: May 4, 2010 4:07 PM

    Quinn, Orton and Tebow, there can only be one.

  8. Omega says: May 4, 2010 4:08 PM

    There is a rumor out of Cleveland that Phil Savage deliberately delayed signing Quinn so that there would not be a QB controversy in early pre- season. The plan was to start with Charlie Frye and then slowly bring in Quinn. Well we all know how that worked out.
    If that is true, then what Savage has done to Quinn’s career is criminal.

  9. LeeB says: May 4, 2010 4:09 PM

    You mean this season, right.

  10. CapsLockKey says: May 4, 2010 4:10 PM

    If the Jagoffs really wanted him, then why in the hell didn’t they just get him from Cleveland in the first place? I’m sure they could have given up more than the bag of shag balls and a half eaten ham sandwich Denver traded to get him. If there is any truth to this, it means they really did want Teblow.

  11. Kaz says: May 4, 2010 4:11 PM

    But, frankly, he has no say in the matter.
    Sure doesn’t, they’ll bench him at 69.99999% of the snaps like Cleveland did…

  12. J. Clayton says: May 4, 2010 4:13 PM

    They’re going to need him when Tebow plays like Grossman

  13. Thatdude23 says: May 4, 2010 4:20 PM

    Let Quinn go some where were he can be a starting QB the guys has skills and could be a good QB in the NFL with the right team. No QB that plays with the shitty browns will ever look good. They suck

  14. RobF2010 says: May 4, 2010 4:21 PM

    For once, I agree with MF. They’ll never trade him. They’ll release him outright next year.

  15. nfcbeast says: May 4, 2010 4:22 PM

    Yes, they will. Just driving the asking price up…..

  16. NFreakinL says: May 4, 2010 4:30 PM

    Who cares about Quinn?
    Just give us back B-Dawk!!!!!

  17. The Troof says: May 4, 2010 4:31 PM

    “We’ll never trade Jay Cutler!”…. oh wait, I mean “We’ll never trade Brandon Marshall”… did we say that? I meant, “Tony Scheffler is integral to this team”… ummm

  18. Slow Joe says: May 4, 2010 4:34 PM

    @Omega: What is wrong with that plan? I think most rookie QBs should be slowly brought along.

  19. steelcity79 says: May 4, 2010 4:34 PM

    lol….yeah, as long as florio is writing, there will always be a chance.

  20. jj jones says: May 4, 2010 4:34 PM

    He has no future in Denver but nobody is going to give up anything for him.

  21. dolphinfiegl99 says: May 4, 2010 4:35 PM

    Kyle Orton Will Start In 2010 And 2011!
    The Broncos Will Trade Orton In 2012!
    Tim Tewbow Will Start Start In 2012!
    Brady Quinn Will Be The Backup To Tebow!

    Are they happy because they are over hyped cry baby losers that would rather talk trash and dance around like a bunch of douches than win a super bowl? Or maybe its because of all the super bowls they won in the LT era. Or maybe its because they are selling off the team.. LT gone, has been. Cromartie gone. Merriman soon to be gone washed up either way. Vincent Jackson soon to be in prison for being a dumb ass. The town of San Diego and their loser chargers fans will never win a super bowl. Yea I’m sure they are just happy as can be… idiot.

  23. Cereal Blogger says: May 4, 2010 4:37 PM

    I believe everything NFL execs say…really I do

  24. COBB says: May 4, 2010 4:38 PM

    Still remember him crying in the Green Room cause he was drafted yet, when Gudell had to move him to a private room so he wouldn’t be too embarressed. Then he turns around and holds out for more money from the Browns.
    CRY BABY!!!

  25. redrum87 says: May 4, 2010 4:39 PM

    I wouldn’t trade either. Quinn he has the best potential in the NFL to be an average QB his whole career. Yeh! Denver. Go Broncos!!!

  26. Tdk24 says: May 4, 2010 4:42 PM

    Close, but nobody will “trade” for Orton in 2012.

  27. Veritas Amber says: May 4, 2010 4:49 PM

    COuldn’t Quinn hold out of camp? What motivation does he have to show up? They going to fine him his pittance of a salary? Please.

  28. DC_Bengals_Fan says: May 4, 2010 4:51 PM

    “Quinn, Orton and Tebow, there can only be one.”
    Of those guys, there can be only none. Assuming you want to, you know, win some games here and there.

  29. HarrisonHits says: May 4, 2010 4:52 PM

    “If that is true, then what Savage has done to Quinn’s career is criminal.”
    How did Savage make Quinn suck the times he did get on the field ? Did Savage insist Quinn not study enough film, not learn the playbook, or any of the numerous other things that an NFL QB does to be successful ?
    Quinn is in the position he’s in because of his own choices and actions. He held out for a lengthy time after the Browns traded up to get him and paid the cost of the trade on top of his contract. He chose to sign a contract that was heavily incentive based. He then did not do what he needed to do to be successful after he did get his ass into work.
    This should be a lesson to greedy players and agents. If he had come in for the offseason program and training camp he might have gotten on the field a hell of a lot sooner and he might have played much better.

  30. tombrookshire says: May 4, 2010 4:56 PM

    Wait until they see him play. They couldn’t get rid of him fast enough.

  31. AirAl says: May 4, 2010 4:58 PM

    Omega, that rumor is false. While Savage might have wanted to bring Quinn in slowly, it was Quinn’s holdout (the dumbest holdout in NFL history according to Peter King) that prevented Quinn from competing for the starting job. Frye and Anderson both played like crap that pre-season, opening the door for Quinn. But Quinn’s holdout caused him to miss two critical weeks of practice and blow a huge opportunity. All Quinn’s fault… and Tom Condon’s (his dumbass agent). That holdout at worst ruined Quinn’s career, at best cost him many millions in endorsements. The amount Quinn’s holdout got him was an extra $250k in guaranteed money. Brilliant!

    It’s gonna be kinda noisy in the Mile High City this year, on account of the 120 decibel sucking sound from the total vacuum of useful skills that Brady Quinn will bring to the Broncos.
    Thanks for taking that clown off our hands.
    Warmest regards,
    A loyal Browns fan

  33. 1NationRaiderNation says: May 4, 2010 5:08 PM

    of course not, they only trade away their best players.

    Criminal? If making millions and having a national ad campaign based strictly off where you played college football (definitely not for what he did while he was there) and the dreaded P word – potential- then I think many of us would go for that. Brady had every chance to start for the Brownies. I can’t believe there’s actually a faction of fans who think he did not start because the coach did not like him.
    No, criminal is Jack Del Rio cutting Byron Leftwich the weekend before opening day.

  35. The Troof says: May 4, 2010 5:14 PM

    The happiest person about this post if Quinn’s sister.
    She just got the half-Packer, half-Bronco jersey back. If she had to get a half-Packer, half-Jaguars too she would’ve freaked.

  36. iusedtobeteddybayer says: May 4, 2010 5:15 PM

    Gay. Trade ’em.

  37. GB3Pack4 says: May 4, 2010 5:19 PM

    I can’t think of another NFL player whose pro experience better typifies this tough business, than Brady Quinn. I hope he makes it with the Broncos, develops into something good, all the while tying up his pay coins in his handkerchief, and leaves at some point, when he’s gotten everything he can out of them, then goes somewhere else and makes it big.

  38. MileHighMadness says: May 4, 2010 5:26 PM

    Turd Ferguson: You made my day. I couldn’t have said it any better my self.

  39. TheOne says: May 4, 2010 5:27 PM

    Yeah Quinn a good backup, maybe 3rd on the roster which he is now for Denver.
    1 – Orton
    2 – Tebow (until Orton has his 5th INT on the year by game 2-3 lol).
    3 – Quinn

  40. CKL says: May 4, 2010 5:36 PM

    As a Pats fan, I like McD. But it is apparent that he has a bit of an ego problem in the sense that he thinks he can take any player and help make him better regardless of actual skill. I’m not saying he shouldn’t have dumped Cutler, Sheffler and Marshall because I think that they don’t fit the profile of team first guys that I think he wants. BUT….players still need to have skill to succeed. It’s something a lot of first time HCs (and even Coords, etc.) probably have issues with….thinking they can coach up anyone pretty much. He’ll learn.

    …and what Quinn did to his own career once he got on the field is even worse.

    The Bronco spokesperson who said ‘never’ has a name. State the name or STFU.

  43. kpweaver27 says: May 4, 2010 6:06 PM

    They’ll never trade Quinn, but they drafted Tebow in the 1st round, all while having a moderately successful Kyle Orton. Denver is the new Tampa Bay.

  44. TheToolofTools says: May 4, 2010 6:11 PM

    Quinn has just gotten so hosed.
    I live in Cleveland and he was abused here.
    Just abused.
    I saw a really good situation at the end of the one of the last (Thank God) games of the year against the 49ers a few seasons ago after DA went down just before the half and he looked tremendous.
    There were several dropped passes but he was ON !
    and those passes were dropped.
    They started D.A. at in the second half and I just knew they didn’t get it.
    B.Q. can read a pass D.
    He knows what’s going on.
    I’m not related to him, a scorned Browns fan, or Damer for that matter.
    He just looked so good and then poof !
    D.A. started the second 1/2.
    I was in shock and Romeo was just so stupid for not seeing what happened or asked for tape to see what he missed.
    I was there.
    I saw it.
    I believe in this man.
    It may not happen next year or the next or the next and who know when this man may really get a shot.
    But if rust doesn’t take over, and he is healthy, and the game comes down to the last drive, I’m all in.
    I saw a clinic others many have misses.

  45. mwcarolina says: May 4, 2010 6:26 PM

    they wont trade Quinn, he will stay here for 2 years and walk away then.

  46. CleanSlaton says: May 4, 2010 6:28 PM

    queue the clip of Brady Quinn still sitting in the green room DEEP into the draft with some slutbag….

  47. RedskinsFanatic says: May 4, 2010 6:57 PM

    Josh McDuffis’s ego is going to drive him to convert Tim Teblow into a fullback and turn Brady Queen into a tight end…Kyle Orton’s going to be the Franchise QB and Demarius Thomas is going to be the Franchise WR…His master plan is going work…but only for the first six games then hes going to flop the second half of the season and get fired and hired by a UFL team…and be the golden boy of the UFL league running his whack system and his homo fist pumping reactions to winning games in a joke of a league.
    hahaha…I feel sorry for Denver fans…its bad enough that you have to fight for air while watching your home games, now you have to do it knowing that your franchise is going to be set back for the next 5 to 7 seasons, similarly to the Raiders and the JaClowncus experiment…

  48. trickbunny says: May 4, 2010 7:09 PM

    I have to laugh at all the doofuses who continue to cry about how Quinn was screwed by the Browns and how he didn’t have a chance to show what a good QB he could be ’cause he played on a crappy team.
    Gee, I wonder how Barry Sanders is considered one of the best RBs of all time, considering he played on one of the worst teams of all time- for his entire career.
    Not to mention the fact that being a Cleveland Brown had exactly *nothing* to do with Quinn fumbling, throwing INTs, throwing at wide open receivers’ feet, over their heads, and throwing the ball 5 yards out of bounds on back to back plays in a classic meltdown. No, I’m pretty sure that all has much more to do with the fact that the guy is a bust.
    …But I’m sure you’re all enamoured with his dreamy eyes, flowing hair, and big muscles. I mean, that seems to be the only reason *anyone* likes Brady Quinn. I see zero evidence that it could be his football skills.

  49. Smoking Joe says: May 4, 2010 7:20 PM

    Hell no they wont trade Quinn.
    McDumbass only trades players with talent.

    hahaha…I feel sorry for Denver fans…
    Everyone see that? This guys name is REDSKINSFANATIC…. The Redskins you know Gus Ferrotte, Jason Campbell, Steve Spurrier. The team that rehired Joe Gibbs. You know the Redskins Dan Snyder, old Bruce Smith, old Deion Sanders, Old Jason Taylor. Come on guys you now THE RED SKINS. Don’t feel too bad for the Denver fans Moron your team just traded for a guy that is a proven choke artist, that spent his one shining moment puking in the huddle cause he was out of shape going into the SUPER BOWL! HE DIDN”T KNOW A GAME ENDED IN A TIE AFTER OVERTIME. I’m talking about Donny McNabb. He sucks the Skins Blow, and you’re apparently Forrest Gump,s Great Grandson.

  51. Cowboys915 says: May 4, 2010 7:59 PM

    he only had 12 starts.. and that was with the browns.. thought he was gon get his fair chance but then they got tebow…………..

  52. JJMADDOG says: May 4, 2010 8:20 PM

    Brady’s best throw was his pitch for Subway.

  53. RedskinsFanatic says: May 4, 2010 8:25 PM

    @Turd Furguson
    I felt genuinely sorry for the Bronchoes…still do. All the moves that the Redskins have made in the past are questionable I’ll give you that, but there are 32 teams in the league and there are only a handful of franchise QBs…you’ve gotta draft them or trade for them. All the ones that you’ve listed didn’t work out, but at least where they were selected, they were rated around that pick position. Where Teblow got drafted was 2 rounds too soon.
    McDuffis outsmarted himself. He traded up to get the 4th rated QB and second rated WR. Granted Clausen is probably a bust, but McCoy seems to be legit…but Teblow would have been available for The Bronchoes to pick him in the late 3rd to early 4th round…now you’ve put a ridiculous amount of pressure on a QB/HB that isn’t warranted for his skill level. Now Teblow is a bust waiting to happen because of his draft position and his unfortunate luck of being picked by a team that lacks the time and resources to wait for his maturation process. Nor does he have a true mentor to learn the game from…unless your consider Kyle Orton or Brady Queen as good QB mentors…They’ll probably just retard his learning process. He’s a Michael Vick type player, minus the hand cannon and proper mechanics and lacks the get away speed that Vick had when he initially came out…and see how well Vick turned out.
    About McNabb, he is a Franchise QB, and a future Hall of Famer…He never really had a supporting cast nor did he really have a true running game threat…now he has both. He’s the type of player to make other players better not the other way around. We’ll see how DeSean Jackson does without McNabb. And we’ll see that Devin Thomas is a budding Franchise WR now that McNabb is throwing to him…Mark my words son…
    I’m just saying…Still laughing…HAHAHAHA

  54. Drafty says: May 4, 2010 8:37 PM

    Donovan McNabb a future Hall of Famer? Well, standards must be dropping as we speak.
    Nonetheless, acquiring Quinn and then drafting Tebow is evidence of only one thing: no plan.
    You think your “mentor” Charlie Weis was right on Quinn so you pursue him for two years, only to bring in a guy you openly say is the future … pure whimsy. McDips**t and Xanders change directions based on what day it is.

  55. GoBrowns19 says: May 4, 2010 8:57 PM

    Rumor has it they don’t want to trade him because he’s so awesome. Haha, I’d feel bad for Denver if I didn’t hate them.

  56. lgwelsh1 says: May 4, 2010 10:25 PM

    Brady is a casualty. From a business perspective he is cheap insurance and has some NFL playing experience. He never got a real chance in Cleveland over his short career. He is not going anywhere this season or next. He will be traded and a new contract will be drawn up and he will be making less than he is now. It’s a shame what a bad team can do for a promising young player.

  57. TheDPR says: May 5, 2010 7:50 AM

    Denver is smart here. If you can get a cheap backup QB with a little starting experience you have little reason to trade him.
    Tebow is a project this year. Orton is the starter. Who’s your #2? Quinn.

  58. DenverBeast says: May 5, 2010 11:43 AM

    @ redskinsfanatic….those were really funny nicknames,douchebag. keep talking shit about the broncos floppin the last half of the season, while you cant win 5 games the whole season.

  59. DASAGENCY says: May 6, 2010 3:37 PM

    I’ve said it from day one that Grady Quinn is an unmitigated bum. What I’m finding out though is that a QUINNBOT just doesn’t die easily. I’m just glad that Cleveland was able to get something for the chump. With any luck, the Calgary Stampeders might give him a shot for a backup job…….on Special Teams.
