    Browns rookie Brady Quinn is mouthing off about how much he should be paid. I didn't think 22nd picks could call shots like this.

    It's because he's got an agent whispering in his ear that he's still a top three pick and should get paid like a top three pick.

    He should get paid less than the No. 21 pick and more than the No. 23 pick. That shouldn't be hard to figure out.

    All he's going to end up doing is pissing off some of his teammates and fans.

    I think he's already on that road. I didn't think THAT much of him as a collegiate quarterback.

    One Brady Quinn thread is plenty when it's just about the same subject.

    He's already done did piss everyone off. And you're right, just STFU and sign your contract pretty boy.

    If and when Quinn helps the Browns win games, this will all be forgotten. Fans don't care about holdouts and money if their team wins. If the Browns lose and Quinn sucks shit, well, then he has a problem.

    If I were a football player, I would squeeze every last cent out of every contract negotiation I could. The NFL doesn't hesitate to throw players away when they are finished with them.

    True. But he's the 22nd pick. He's not even in the top 10. Plus, the Browns are used to throwing away money at draft picks and free agents. For Quinn not to get a contract done must mean his agent is ask for a phat contract and the only set of keys to the Dawg Pound.

    There's only one word which can describe Brady Quinn's holdout, and it's the same word that can be said of Quinn in all facets of life:

    Courageous.

    Well, he has to go out in public with his hair looking the way it does. That takes a set of balls.

    Clearly the Browns, like the rest of the league, don't fully appreciate the depth of Quinn's courageousness.

    I saw Quinn on ESPN News today, and he was saying the holdout was not over money, but over incentives that would allow him to be "paid like a starting quarterback" if he does indeed become the starting quarterback.

    If true, and that's a big if, I don't have a problem with that. If he's holding out for No. 3 pick money, however, then he's as much a d-bag as he looks.
