Holmgren: Quinn’s future ‘depends’ on Browns’ moves

It appears Brady Quinn is nothing more than the Browns’ last resort at quarterback.

At least that’s how general manager Mike Holmgren made it seem to the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Friday.

While Holmgren told the Plain Dealer that trade talk for Quinn is “a little premature,” he indicated that the former first-round draft pick’s future in Cleveland depends on whether or not the Browns acquire another QB.

“It all depends on what else we can do,” Holmgren said Friday. “We are continuing to look for and evaluate quarterbacks.”

The Browns already have acquired one QB this offseason, trading for Seahawks backup Seneca Wallace. The next day, they terminated Derek Anderson‘s contract.

A similar fate could be in store for Quinn if, say, the Browns acquire Jake Delhomme, which it seems Holmgren hopes to do. Delhomme visited Cleveland on Friday, but he’s scheduled to visit New Orleans as well.

“Delhomme is an ongoing discussion … he still is on radar,” Holmgren told the Plain Dealer. “But I did tell this to Jake: While you’re debating what you want to do, I’ve got to keep going. We’re not just sitting on our hands waiting for something to happen. I don’t want to be left standing at the altar.”
