The Kansas City Chiefs called the Cleveland Browns last week and inquired as to whether the Browns would consider trading their backup quarterback, Brady Quinn. The Browns told the Chiefs that Quinn, whom they chose in the first round of last year's draft, isn't going anywhere.
The news, first reported by Jay Glazer on Fox (via PFT), calls into question whether the Chiefs have any faith in Brodie Croyle as their quarterback of the future, and whether the Browns have any faith in Derek Anderson as their quarterback of the future.
The Browns seem to believe that Quinn will be their starter some day relatively soon, even though Anderson is just 25 years old and had a Pro Bowl season in 2007. As for the Chiefs, they might already be thinking about the 2009 draft, which doesn't look like it's going to be a good one for quarterbacks, and wondering if they ought to make a move now that will prevent them from having to reach for a quarterback in April.
