Jake Delhomme learns the inevitable

Jake Delhomme 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.

    To the Redskins! He’ll get 4 TDs a game! To the other team!

    Come home Jake.

    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.

    Poor guy. He’ll just have to be content to be 36, retired, and incredibly rich.

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

    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.

    No one throws a pick six like Jake.

    Exactly how much guaranteed dough did they give him last year? Ouch.

    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.

    Seahawks are always in need of a backup…

    on his way out the door, he was throwing away the last of his browns memorabilia and he was intercepted by a janitor.

    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?

    this poor guy is going to sign with someone to ride the bench and be paid by 3 teams all at once.

  14. jackblackshairyback says: Jul 27, 2011 3:42 PM

    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.

    he may be the worst qb in the league right now

  16. hedphurst says: Jul 27, 2011 3:47 PM

    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.

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

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

    Jake the mistake.

  19. myeaglescantwin says: Jul 27, 2011 3:57 PM

    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.

    Brett Favre laughed at Jack Delhomme’s interceptions.

    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.

  23. rocketdogsports says: Jul 27, 2011 4:09 PM

    He replaced Andersen and was just as bad. Good riddance.

  24. thetooloftools says: Jul 27, 2011 4:25 PM

    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.

    Jake is a fully evolved version of Mark Sanchez.

  26. blackngold4life says: Jul 27, 2011 6:25 PM

    WOW..FROM SUPERBOWL TO GETTN CUT FROM THE BROWNS!! THATS TRAGIC!!_

  27. mdnittlion says: Jul 27, 2011 8:36 PM

    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.
