Jake Delhomme learns the inevitable

AP

Jake Delhomme’s future as a member of the Browns was probably cooked well before last season ended.

It was definitely cooked when the team brought back Seneca Wallace to be Colt McCoy’s likely backup.

On Wednesday, Delhomme learned the inevitable when the Browns informed Delhomme of his release, according to Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com. Delhomme reportedly wants to keep playing; a reunion in Denver with John Fox is possible.

  1. Why would he want to go to Denver? Jake couldn’t beat out Brady Quinn for the backup job. That is sad and also means it’s time to hang up the cleats.

  2. What a start for the Elway era in Denver that would be… give up Orton and pick up Delhomme.

  3. Got to feel for this guy…one of the classier players in the league, who had a good run in the mid-2000s, but has struggled as of late.

    Looks like we have seen the last of him.

    Truth. Best leader I ever saw.
    I do hope that somehow some way he finds his way onto a SB contending team as a #3. I would love it if he had a SB ring even if he wasn’t the starter.

  5. I love how people always say that Jake is a great leader. Tell me something, is it good leadership to throw sidearm passes to the defense when you are being sacked?

  6. browns paid him $7 million last year, in addition to the $12.5 mil he got from Carolina. He was scheduled to make $5.2 mil in base salary this year, but the move frees up $2.7 mil in cap space.

  7. I’m a Browns fan, and as frustrating as the turnovers were, I still liked the guy. He’s tough, he’s smart, and he’s a pro. He looked great in the preseason, got hurt in the first regular season game, and never looked right after that. Whether it was the injury, or facing more blitzes and complex defensive schemes than the preseason games offered, I’m not knowledgeable enough to judge. But I think he’ll be a valuable teammate to some younger QB somewhere, even though he’ll probably never start a meaningful game again.

    Seahawks are always in need of a backup…

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    The seahawks are still in need of a starter, and future QB.

  9. how does this NO talent a$$clown keep getting contracts??

    any game i watch that involves Delhomme or Bulger, I watch in hopes that a Defender gets a clean shot at em.

    & i actually hope they dont get hurt, just so there will be chance that i can see it again.

    Because being a great leader doesn’t have anything to do with having elite physical talent??? Seems like a simple concept to me.

    Your post says more about you than it does about them. Neither one has ever done anything ever to deserve that feeling.

  11. This guy was the beneficiary of two of the dumbest contracts ever. Only Albert Haynesworth has been more overpaid than him. I hope he does keep playing just so I can continue to be amazed at what a terrible athlete he is.

  12. I live in Cleveland and I only wish Jake well. [After being in the stands and watching the Indians get no hit while having 5 errors I’m numb].
    He’s not a bad guy or player… but he may not still have the juice.
    I know he and Colt really hit it off well and Colt is going to continue to be a winner.

  13. If all he does is suit up and throw for INTs all day, man do I have a magical place for him to land, it’s called the NFC West and there’s no pressure to win a lot, because 7-9 gets you in playoffs. So once again well Jake to the worst division to ever disgraced the great game of football.
