Browns could be looking for quarterback help

Though the Cleveland Browns have yet to contact any veteran quarterbacks, they soon could be.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Browns may have to round up a veteran depending on the outcome of an MRI to be conducted on the right leg of Seneca Wallace.

Another factor will be the way that both Wallace and Jake Delhomme generally feel.

Delhomme was pressed into service four weeks after suffering an ankle sprain in the regular-season opener. 

The Browns face the Steelers next week.

    As one fan who will be in attendance…can’t wait for this one.

    Jeff Garcia

  4. NYMets says: Oct 10, 2010 8:59 PM

    Maybe they should give Bran Sipe a call. Or Kosar. Or Testaverde. The worst they could do is lose, which is what Cleveland is doing anyway.

    As I have posted here many, many times before ….
    Football is a crazy violent and dangerous game. If the NFL game goes to an 18 game season by the time the Super Bowl rolls around the teams will be playing with players they signed off the street that week.

    Where’s Vinnie T?

  9. ortonhearsnoboos says: Oct 10, 2010 9:05 PM

    Can we give you back Brady Quinn for one Peyton Hillis????

  10. scrapdawg12 says: Oct 10, 2010 9:07 PM

    A 2nd round draft pick and you can have Kevin Kolb or Mike Vick. The Eagles need to figure out who they want for the future and roll with it.

  11. Auz says: Oct 10, 2010 9:08 PM

    Maybe the Broncos can trade Quinn back to the Browns for a draft pick.

  12. FumbleNuts says: Oct 10, 2010 9:09 PM

    QB J.P Losman ??????????

  13. IKNOWALL says: Oct 10, 2010 9:15 PM

    Maybe after today the Packers would part with Rodgers—But I guess the Browns wouldn’t want him.

  14. RedskinOne says: Oct 10, 2010 9:16 PM

    Matt Leinart is interested

  15. Philahoov says: Oct 10, 2010 9:17 PM

    Brett Ratliff my guess off the Pats Practice Squad, big time Mangini favorite

  16. Buck Stallion says: Oct 10, 2010 9:19 PM

    They should get Dante Culpepper. After all, he’s the #1 free agent qb…right Florio?

  17. Grimace421 says: Oct 10, 2010 9:22 PM

    I’m sure the bears wouldn’t mind getting rid of Todd Collins…

  18. andyprough says: Oct 10, 2010 9:22 PM

    Colt McCoy – meet Mr. Harrison and Mr. Woodley.
    Should be interesting!

  19. roadkill says: Oct 10, 2010 9:22 PM

    Andrea McNulty?

  20. blmonroe12 says: Oct 10, 2010 9:23 PM

    I hope they do that instead of going to McCoy. We can’t afford to ruin another QB (Couch, Quinn)

  21. pitsburHGH Cheats says: Oct 10, 2010 9:24 PM

    As long as he didn’t rape anyone, I’ll chear for him.
    stealer trash chears for serial rapists, on the other hand.

  22. Blackn'Gold says: Oct 10, 2010 9:26 PM

    I don’t think so. If Wallace can’t go and Delhoome is ineffective, they should start the rookie Brody Coyle. He only has the record for the most wins in the history of college football.
    Of course, playing the Steelers when you team has quarterback issues is not a scenario any NFL coach would want.
    GO STEELERS!

  23. Hotwaggy11 says: Oct 10, 2010 9:26 PM

    The Browns don’t need QB help, they need coaching help. For the fifth straight week they have melted down in the fourth quarter. 22 pros do not play well for 3 quarters and then fall on their faces in the 4th. The coaching staff does not know how to play with a lead and lack any killer instinct. Holmgren didn’t want to fire a head coach after only one year. Well, it has been more then a year and it is time for mangina to go.

  24. habibfromnewdehli says: Oct 10, 2010 9:27 PM

    TROY SMITH!

  25. paintman34 says: Oct 10, 2010 9:27 PM

    OJ pimpson i was thinking thigpen to except him and a 4th for cribbs

  26. abrownsfan says: Oct 10, 2010 9:31 PM

    the browns SHOULD be looking for quarterback help. and running back help, and wide receiver help, and defensive line help, etc….

  27. Ron says: Oct 10, 2010 9:32 PM

    As Pat White screams…ME-ME-ME

  28. poncherello says: Oct 10, 2010 9:35 PM

    Is Don Stock available

  29. CountSnail says: Oct 10, 2010 9:38 PM

    Charlie Batch for a 5th and conditional 6th

  30. Mark Stevanski says: Oct 10, 2010 9:38 PM

    Quinn would be the right choice….It is 10-10-10 today. It is in the stars that somehow they drop their ego and let him return. He is wasting away behind Orton and the Tebow-mania. He knows the system and players. It would be a perfect solution to the Delhomme 7 million dollar debacle, when anyone with a brain knew that this guy sucked even when they went to the superbowl…HE is probably what cost them that game!
    Quinn for Browns, I say. 6th or 7th round pick would suffice….or one of our worthless wideouts.
    Then I would not have to give my Quinn Browns jersey away to goodwill.

  31. poncherello says: Oct 10, 2010 9:42 PM

    Strock

  32. smithopher says: Oct 10, 2010 9:43 PM

    they aren’t poised to contend for anything anyway, that division has two powerhouses sitting on top. let mccoy start, he’ll at least get valuable experience vs NFL defenses. didn’t draft a guy like him to be a career backup.

  33. funi says: Oct 10, 2010 9:43 PM

    Browns can bring back Brian Sipe or Tim Couch! If not, Colt, this aint SMU anymore!

  34. Franchise says: Oct 10, 2010 9:46 PM

    I’d venture to say that the Jags would work a deal for Trent Edwards.

  35. laxcoach says: Oct 10, 2010 9:50 PM

    Paging Mr. Thigpen, Mr. Tyler Thigpen. Too bad the guy sucked in garbage time on Monday night.

  36. realitypolice says: Oct 10, 2010 9:58 PM

    As opposed to every other position on the field where the Browns are just fine, thank you.

  37. The WIZ says: Oct 10, 2010 9:59 PM

    Mike Vick please pick up the orange courtesy phone.

  38. ppdoc13 says: Oct 10, 2010 10:08 PM

    i’d bet you could get the mighty quinn back for a 1st and a 2nd

  39. ispysomething7 says: Oct 10, 2010 10:16 PM

    Tebow for a #1

  40. carp killah says: Oct 10, 2010 10:16 PM

    You might as well go with McCoy, or let Cribbs play QB. He’s probably the best they have anyways.
    Charlie Batch is way too valuable to the Steelers.

  41. DB26 says: Oct 10, 2010 10:21 PM

    I hope some of you don’t actually believe you can get the value your speaking of for some of these guys mentioned. Tyler Thigpen for a 3rd? Thigpen & a 4th for Cribbs? A 2nd for an ineffective Kolb?
    Here is what I would do…… Ask Delhomme to retire & take a job with the organization as a QB Coaching Asst. Great career, but it is over. Send a 5th out & get Sage Rosenfels. Rosenfels has been solid every time he has had an opportunity to start. Thigpen isn’t a bad idea, but maybe for a conditional 5th MAX. I wouldn’t be opposed to making a move with Philly for Mike Kafka either.
    Seeing what Bradford has done to date & how Max Hall is playing, Colt McCoy wouldn’t upset me being in the lineup. If nothing else, it gives the Browns an opportunity to see whether they want to move forward with him as the Franchise QB or look elsewhere in the draft.

  42. Randel57 says: Oct 10, 2010 10:22 PM

    @hotwaggy
    Your a jackass……how could you put this one the coach??? Did he get the roughing penalties? Did he throw 2 picks? Did he fumble? Did he run underneath to cover Tony Gonzo and leave the corner one on one? No, the same answer that could be said about your general knowledge of football! Do you have any?????? A very simple….NOOOO!!!
    GO BROWNS!!!

  43. ninjapleazee says: Oct 10, 2010 10:31 PM

    Pat White

  44. djeg07 says: Oct 10, 2010 10:37 PM

    we need to bring back todd philcox…
    i would not be surpraised if the situation is that bad, garcia with his ties with holmgren but the browns may not want to pay ufl the money to sing him!!! no way to mccoy or thigpen, they are third string for a reason.

  45. Philahoov says: Oct 10, 2010 10:38 PM

    If I was the browns I wouldn’t plug in Colt yet, I would look for another Vet, although Ratliff is still my bet, Pepper wont leave the UFL apparently. Philly isn’t trading anyone, and Smith is a 49er. Maybe like someone said JP Losman

  46. bruno says: Oct 10, 2010 11:03 PM

    the browns are always a bad choice, they should sign JaMarcus Russell. GO BROWNS GO TO HELL

  47. kevo126 says: Oct 10, 2010 11:26 PM

    “Browns could be looking for quarterback help”
    hahah how is this news????? they have been looking for qb help since 1999

  48. OLDCRACKER says: Oct 10, 2010 11:28 PM

    Bernie Kosar could definitely use the money. What’s Ryan Leaf doing nowdays?

  49. Heywood Jablowme says: Oct 10, 2010 11:30 PM

    Please, let it be Mike Vick.

  50. Deb says: Oct 10, 2010 11:43 PM

    Bizarre thread.
    At least there was only one sick loser whining about imaginary rapists. But judging by his name, he’s just a bitter sicko.
    Black’nGold, you nearly gave me a heart attack with that Brody Croyle comment. You’re thinking of Colt McCoy, who could never be confused with Croyle. Brody may not be a record-breaker, but he’s no coward.
    I think the Eagles need both Vick and Kolb. They keep breaking their QBs.
    @Citizen Strange …
    Best comment on the thread. Can’t believe the league’s concession to the NFLPA in exchange for the 18-game season: 1 extra player on the roster. Woo-hoo. That’ll be a big help.

    Today’s lesson, kids, is brought to you in part by the Cleveland education system:
    Before insulting an extremely large group of people, always make sure you know how to spell.

  52. Fantasia says: Oct 11, 2010 5:46 AM

    The Clowns just keep on doing what they do. Ha!
    Don’t worry about Big Ben. He’ll be raping and assaulting that lousy Cleveland secondary next Sunday:)

  53. Evil Dead says: Oct 11, 2010 6:16 AM

    I love how the Browns go out and get 3 new quarterbacks this season and are out of options by halftime at week 5. Poor bastards.
    For whatever reason, the Browns get their own QBs destroyed. So, to remedy this issue, they bring in a 35 year-old, mobility-lacking turnover machine with confidence issues.
    I’m sure that Delhomme is a nice guy and probably would have done better on a team with more weapons. But, none of those better teams wanted him and at this point he looks exactly like every sports writer thought he would.

  54. Audient says: Oct 11, 2010 6:48 AM

    Bubby can’t defend rooting for a rapist, so he picks on a guy’s spelling. I guess if it weren’t for a misspelled words, Bubby would have no retort.

    As a Longhorns fan – and witness to the history Colt made at UT and in the college football world (most wins by any QB in college football history while playing in one of the toughest BCS conferences in the country, in case anyone out there has been living in a cave…)
    As much as I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do as a starter, I would not want to see him fed to the lions in hist first start. The Steelers defense is just plain scary.
    (BTW make no mistake, Colt with be a starter – either with the Browns or some other team by this time next year).
    I’d say let some arbitrary victim get eaten alive next week. Cleveland has no chance in that game anyway. They should just plan to work out their defensive unit hard in practice this week, plan a very conservative running game next week, take their punishment and move on and look ahead to next year.

    @Audient …
    Bubby doesn’t have to defend rooting for a rapist. The medical report found that the women didn’t even have sexual intercourse. Since little Ben didn’t go there, no rape occurred. That’s why the DA said he didn’t even have probable cause–the reasonable suspicion that a crime took place–and hoped the accuser and her little friends had learned their lesson.
    Interesting way to excuse your own lackluster performance: slandering the talent on another team. Well, I guess if that’s all you’ve got …

    Throwing a pick 6 to a fat body is too much for me. I am now a free agent fan. How ’bout those 9ers?
