Though it comes as no surprise considering Jake Delhomme’s recent performance and $5.4 million base salary for 2011, Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer confirmed in a Friday online video that the 10-year veteran quarterback’s days with the Browns “are numbered.”
“I think he knows it, the team knows it,” added Grossi, who predicted that the Browns’ third-string quarterback would come from the “undrafted ranks” or “maybe a very low-profile veteran free agent.”
Colt McCoy is the Browns’ projected starter, and Seneca Wallace was re-signed in March to back him up.
Delhomme, 36, threw two touchdown passes and seven interceptions in five appearances last year. Dating back to the 2008 playoffs, he has a beyond ugly 11:30 TD-to-INT ratio.
Grossi ended his video segment on Delhomme by opining that the longtime Panthers starter “is done as a legitimate starting competitor.”
