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.
