Everyone expects Jake Delhomme to be the Cleveland Browns’ starting quarterback this season. But head coach Eric Mangini says that’s not a sure thing.
Addressing the media at the Browns’ minicamp this week, Mangini pulled a Frank Costanza and stopped short of naming Delhomme the starter, saying Seneca Wallace will also get work with the first offense and get an opportunity to prove that he deserves the top spot on the depth chart.
“We’re heading in that direction [with Delhomme as the starter], but we’ll head into camp and see what happens,” Mangini said, per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “Jake has looked good, but Seneca’s done a really nice job too. They’ll both get work with the ones. It’s good to have this situation.”
Delhomme and Wallace will get an equal number of reps at the start of training camp, although it’s likely that Delhomme will get more reps with the first offense.
