Report: Brady Quinn signs with Dolphins

Getty Images

FOX can wait.  And possibly not for long.

Quarterback Brady Quinn, who recently took at job handling college and pro football for FOX Sports, may not be available when football season begins.  According to Jeff Darlington of NFL Network, Quinn has signed with the Dolphins.

The move puts Quinn on the team that famously passed on him in the 2007 draft with the ninth overall pick, opting instead for Ted Ginn.  Quinn slid to the Browns at No. 22 that year.

It appeared he’d slide out of the NFL permanently.  But the Dolphins have needs at a minimum for a camp arm.  After working out Quinn, John Skelton, and Rex Grossman, the Dolphins opted to sign Quinn.

Quinn will know by August 30 whether he has won a spot on the 53-man roster.

The Dolphins become the seventh NFL team by which he has been employed.  After starting off in Cleveland, Quinn has played for the Broncos, Chiefs, Seahawks, Jets, and Rams.

    he actually did a good job on tv; better than mcnabb- he’s terrible.

    Brady Quinn, drafted by the Browns at #22. Johnny Manziel, drafted by the Browns at #22. Oh oh…..

    Interesting signing, nothing wrong with pulling out all the stops to try and enhance the QB group. Looking forward to seeing him get some preseason reps just in case this is our last chance to see what he’s been up to lately.

  4. sammadison says: Aug 11, 2014 7:36 PM

    Another camp arm. Probably won’t be on the 53 man roster unless they cut delvin. Which I don’t think they will do to keep a never was in Brady Quinn

  5. citiciti says: Aug 11, 2014 7:37 PM

    Tebow wants to know what the hell is going on.

    I forgot Quinn ever played for the Rams. His time there was unremarkable, just like the rest of his career.

    Good luck in Miami though.

  8. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 11, 2014 7:38 PM

    Wow what makes the Dolphins think he can play QB in the NFL

  9. unislaya says: Aug 11, 2014 7:39 PM

    Brady who?

    “Now I’m done”

  11. odie02 says: Aug 11, 2014 7:42 PM

    Kind of ironic this is the guy that everyone wanted the dolphins to draft when they drafted Ted Ginn Jr. Now, he is just a camp arm……

  12. catquick says: Aug 11, 2014 7:43 PM

    Soon, he will have played for every team in the league

  13. catquick says: Aug 11, 2014 7:45 PM

    He was also with the Bills for a cup of coffee

    Forgot Brandon weeden also drafted at 22.

  15. kcflake says: Aug 11, 2014 7:46 PM

    I would take tebow over quinn. You know what you have in quinn. Tebow still has an unknown performance level he could reach. Ticket sales too. Florida loves them some tebow.

  16. mogogo1 says: Aug 11, 2014 7:50 PM

    Anybody else wonder why with there being so few quality QBs that teams don’t try and develop young guys rather than pulling guys out of retirement?

    Quinn and Skelton haven’t thrown a pass in a real game since 2012. It’s been since 2011 for Grossman. Quinn is a horrid 4-16 as a starter for his career. And in 2011 when he last played, Grossman threw for more yards than Quinn has in his entire NFL career.

  17. FinFan68 says: Aug 11, 2014 7:50 PM

    Should have signed Tebow as an emergency QB and then used him as a FB during the season. At least they would have a guy that could run for 2 yards on 3rd and 1.

  18. bucsorbust says: Aug 11, 2014 7:51 PM

    This means that about 2-3 years, another Browns #22 will follow in his footsteps….initials JFF.

  19. ctiggs says: Aug 11, 2014 7:52 PM

    Lol probably the best QB on the roster

  20. conormacleod says: Aug 11, 2014 7:53 PM

    How much he getting paid for the next couple weeks? Seems like a waste of time.

  21. ghjjf says: Aug 11, 2014 7:53 PM

    Every team needs a tackling dummy.

  22. philyeagles5 says: Aug 11, 2014 7:55 PM

    Why? This guy has shown nothing as a pro. I just don’t get how he keeps getting a job as a QB.

  23. goninjagoninjagogo says: Aug 11, 2014 7:55 PM

    Fox can wait? Well I can’t.

  24. doggeatdogg says: Aug 11, 2014 7:59 PM

    I absolutely hate this new Miami / Cleveland connection. They get Manziel when Miami could have had him and Miami gets Quinn, Cleveland’s reject.

  25. ilovefoolsball says: Aug 11, 2014 8:02 PM

    What a colossal disappointment this guy was.
    I mean he was on the cover of Men’s Health for pete’s sake.

  26. brownsclown says: Aug 11, 2014 8:05 PM

    Braddus Quinn. The Tim Tebow of weightlifting!

  27. ncphinsfan says: Aug 11, 2014 8:07 PM

    Don’t strain yourselves trying to think of something clever to say against the Dolphins. Clearly, he was signed to throw the next few weeks while Moore and Devlin are healing. Hope he is ready for the useless Bucs game this weekend at least for the offensive skill players trying to make the team. Nothing more can possibly made from this situation. However, I am sure if Belichik signed him, it would be seen as another Genius move.

  28. largent80100 says: Aug 11, 2014 8:08 PM

    The best Brady doe.

  29. thelastpieceofcheese says: Aug 11, 2014 8:09 PM

    Brady Quinn finally is at the team where he belongs.

    Fins are going to the Superbowl!

  30. scmems07 says: Aug 11, 2014 8:15 PM

    I know one thing, can’t be worse than Seth lobato.

    Looks like the dolphins are looking to dump Moore’s $5 a year to hold a clip board, I’m ok with that, just get a serviceable backup.

  31. VenerableAxiom says: Aug 11, 2014 8:16 PM

    What don’t you people not understand. Their two back ups are injured and they need a camp arm. He’ll likely play in a couple preseason games and that will be it, unless he does something special. He’s not as good as Tannehill or Moore, if he shows better than Devlin or Labato he might get on the final roster. That said, he’ll probably get the veteran minimum, which may be more than the kids are getting.

  32. ytownjoe says: Aug 11, 2014 8:32 PM

    Good luck Brady.

  33. whodat5150 says: Aug 11, 2014 8:34 PM

    Being a Notre Dame fan, I expected him to have a better career. Since Joe Montana, my Irish QBs haven’t done much at the next level.

  34. pats777 says: Aug 11, 2014 8:34 PM

    Why are their backups all injured? O-line problems again?

  35. nickinneohio says: Aug 11, 2014 8:34 PM

    As they say: A quarterback who has 2 jobs has no jobs.

  36. simonwelds says: Aug 11, 2014 8:35 PM

    Moore is being paid 4mil plus to sit the bench… Quinn is here to take moores place at a much cheaper price

  37. somethinghappeninghere says: Aug 11, 2014 8:35 PM

    Quinn? Meh! But all those idiots like Salguero wanting Tebow only want Tebow because of headlines and story lines (another s. Florida reporter idiot, Omar Kelly of Sun Sentinel, wanted Manziel!)…that way, when Dolphins engrossed in more controversy over Timmah, they can roast Philbin even more…probably why Florio wanted Fins to sign Timmy as well…closet Jets fan loves to bash the Dolphins but he hasn’t had his excuse lately since BullyGate is in the past and Mike Pouncey didn’t get into the same trouble Maurkice did…

  39. jarepine says: Aug 11, 2014 8:54 PM

    Depending on how much the contract is for I wouldn’t be surprised if he beats out Devlin. Devlin hasn’t developed like they hoped he would because at this point if Moore leaves or is hurt Devlin won’t be left as the primary back-up. He has been hurt this year trying to learn a new offense, it just depends if Quinn can pick up the offense fast enough to make some waves, at least he has a stronger arm.

  40. jimthebuilder27 says: Aug 11, 2014 8:55 PM

    Quinn: I’m Brady and I’m. Back!

    The rest of us: Who’s Brady?

  41. jonesjourdan24 says: Aug 11, 2014 9:00 PM

    I feel sad for tebow. But good for Quinn he will likely make the roster.

  42. dickshotdogs says: Aug 11, 2014 9:06 PM

    His time with The Rams was “unremarkable.” Wasn’t that the case at all of his stops?

  43. huschlej says: Aug 11, 2014 9:18 PM

    “Kind of ironic this is the guy that everyone wanted the dolphins to draft when they drafted Ted Ginn Jr. Now, he is just a camp arm……”

    That’s bad, but not the worst. Pete Prisco ragged on the Vikings for passing on him and taking Adrian Peterson instead in his draft grades. If I ever had any doubt that guy was clueless, that removed it.

    BTW, Prisco is no certain the Browns should skip the prelims and start Johnny. Be nervous Browns fans. Be very nervous!

  44. tannetrill says: Aug 11, 2014 9:22 PM

    Does this mean that the Dolphins get Brady Quinn’s entire family as well?

  45. lightofkolob says: Aug 11, 2014 9:31 PM

    Brady Quinn is finally the best QB on his team

  46. v2787 says: Aug 11, 2014 9:33 PM

    Quinn is the Steve Deberg of the 21st century.

  47. thehawg says: Aug 11, 2014 9:50 PM

    I would sign Tebow, at least he can play special teams.

  48. u4iadman says: Aug 11, 2014 9:58 PM

    Met in Seattle airport as he returned a rental…bigger guy than appears on tv.
    Both rented the same cheap car from the same beyond cheap agency…I knew right then he was not getting the gig in Seattle.

    Sux for him, team won the superbowl after that.

  49. briang123 says: Aug 11, 2014 9:59 PM

    If only Joe Buck’s broadcasting career were as short as Brady Quinn’s.

  50. j0esixpack says: Aug 11, 2014 10:22 PM


    So let me get this straight – Brady Quinn jilts Fox Sports and then gives the scoop, not to Fox but to the NFL Network?

    That can’t be going over well at Fox Sports either

  51. basexc9 says: Aug 11, 2014 11:06 PM

    They just cut Devlin. Wouldn’t be surprised if they traded Moore to the Texans and made Quinn the backup.

  52. uglydingo says: Aug 11, 2014 11:36 PM

    Pat Devlin was cut by the Dolphins this evening. Clearly, Lazor valued an experienced backup QB in Brady Quinn, a lot more than a young development prospect.
    Apparently Tannehill is looking great in the new system.

  53. Brinke says: Aug 12, 2014 12:17 AM

    wraps up the division.

  54. chiadam says: Aug 12, 2014 1:13 AM

    Fox should probably not remove him from the company email directory. He’ll be back soon.

  55. ningenito78 says: Aug 12, 2014 1:27 AM

    And Tim Tebow continues to not have a job in the NFL. Yeah yeah yeah. I’m just sayin’…

  56. dcapettini says: Aug 12, 2014 8:59 AM

    Maybe if the Dolphins would shore up their O-line and get some decent receivers, one of the guys would turn out to be a franchise QB. I don’t think that they have passed on any HOFers, but the way the revolving door has been spinning in Miami pretty much precludes them from giving anyone a real opportunity.

  57. urbusted2 says: Aug 12, 2014 9:38 AM

    Brady Quinn is a good guy and also the king of the check down.

  58. miamismyteam says: Aug 12, 2014 12:48 PM

    Just in the way Tebow carrys himself and pure positive attitude should he land a roster spot somewhere.. The kid is a winner.. Would have been a better choice the Quinn..
