Quinn holding out on Browns?

    Dan Patrick mentioned that Quinn might be hanging tough in negotiations with Cleveland. Is this a leak by the front office to gain leverage or is his agent really hoping to get him top 10 money?

    This will make his future failure even more yummy.

    What, a first-round NFL picking holding out? That never happens.

    Top 10 money is reserved for top 10 picks. Quinn wasn't a top 10 pick. As a Browns fan an season ticketholder I hated this pick. I think he was a product of the Notre Dame and ESPN hype machine. I am hoping for the best but expecting the worst like all Browns fans.

    the nfl should do what the NBA does with rookie salaries. have a system set up to where they are in a certain pay scale, depending on where they are picked. that is why NBA rookies are in camp, and NFL rooks bitch for months about 150 thousand.

    I remember a couple of years ago when someone was trying to hype a story about the possibility of Maurice Clarett holding out from the Broncos...like a third or fourth round pick ever held out. Hell, there was some fool on this site last year trying to hype a story that Reggie Bush was prepared to sit out the entire Saints season.
    Wake me up when Quinn doesn't show up for the first day of practice.....

    Couple observations:

    1. The Browns aren't running the most complicated offense in the league, so if the guy misses a week or two of training camp, so be it. I doubt it gets that far.

    2. Charlie Frye can play for a little while, but he's not a NFL quarterback. He spooks too easy. He won't be good until his legs slow down a little and he had to stay in the pocket. Derek Anderson is probably the better option.

    3. Enough of this Notre Dame hype machine nonsense. Quinn has a huge frame, the requisite coaching, decent mechanics...he'll be a pretty good pro guy.

    The first overall pick who is a QB will always get more than a DE or OT would get for being the first pick. Quinn might not get top 10 money, but he's going to want first-round QB money. That has to be more than DE or OT would get at 22. No?

    Agree, agree and agree.

    Who is anyone kidding? Quinn will be playing for a new coach next year. Crennel won't be around unless he pulls off a miracle.

    Frye can hold it down, but Quinn is by far the better player and should pass him without much of a fight. Anderson is a backup. That's about it.

    Quinn won't be a franchise QB, but put guys like Edwards and Winslow around him, Joe Thomas and that guy they signed from the Bengals (some guard?) protecting his ass; get him a RB and all of a sudden that offense looks pretty good.

    You're right, Crennel's done. Cleveland gets absolutely blasted by its division every year. Browns don't have the up-down talent the Steelers do, they don't have the athletes to cover the Bengals, and they can't score on the Ravens.
