But they made a good one Sunday.
They acquired a potential franchise quarterback in Brady Quinn for essentially a ham sandwich. That's not to disrespect running back Peyton Hillis, the man the Broncos traded to the Browns to get Quinn. But let's face it: The asking price was reasonable.
The Browns also get a sicth-round pick in this year's draft and a conditional 2012 pick, which is probably late-round selection that can improve if Quinn becomes a starter.
If he does, the Broncos fleeced the Browns.
Quinn has had some tough moments with the Browns, but he's never really been given much to work with or been truly given the keys the car.
He will compete with Kyle Orton in Denver, and here's a guess that Quinn pushes Orton for the starting job.
The one knock on Quinn is that he didn't let it go last season, that he wouldn't make the chance throw. He has to do more of that. But once he gets around a better offense, I think he’ll do more of that.
I still can't believe the Browns are willing to play with Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace. Did they watch tape from 2009?
Unless they draft a guy in the first round, the Browns will be a disaster in 2010.
Delhomme and Wallace? How would you like to be stuck with that mess?
