    Browns deal Frye to the Seahawks

    It has not taken the Browns long to make a QB change after Sunday's game. Charlie Frye has been traded to the Seahawks. Not sure who is starting against the Bengals on Sunday.

    Just one game into the season, the Cleveland Browns will make a change at quarterback, as the team on Tuesday afternoon dealt third-year veteran Charlie Frye, who started Sunday's regular-season opener but was benched early in the game, to the Seattle Seahawks.

    It is believed that the Browns, who spent much of Monday seeking a trade partner for Frye, received a draft choice in return.

    There is no word yet on who will start for Cleveland in next Sunday's home game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The departure of Frye could pave the way for the Browns to turn the starting job over to first-round draft pick Brady Quinn of Notre Dame, but general manager Phil Savage on Monday cautioned that it might be too early for the former Notre Dame star to be elevated to that status.

    Savage cited the 1999 season when, after a blowout loss to Pittsburgh, the Browns benched starting veteran Ty Detmer and moved first-round pick Tim Couch, the top overall selection in the draft that year, into the lineup. Cleveland finished 2-14 that season, and Couch, clearly not ready yet to start, struggled throughout the year.

    There had been rumors following Sunday's lopsided loss to the Steelers that Frye might be traded or released. Frye completed only four of 10 passes for 34 yards and an interception in the game -- a QB rating of 10.0 -- and was replaced by Derek Anderson at 6;34 of the second quarter. Anderson did not fare much better, going 13-of-28 for 184 yards.

    Those rumors gained some steam Monday when journeyman quarterback Ken Dorsey, who had been a mentor to Quinn in training camp, arrived at the Browns' complex. The team is expected to re-sign Dorsey, a four-year veteran, on Tuesday afternoon.

    Frye, 26, was a third-round choice in the 2005 draft, and the former Akron star moved into the starting lineup in the final month of his rookie campaign. He started the first 13 games in 2006, then missed the final three outings of the year with a wrist injury.

    In camp this summer, Frye competed with Anderson for the top job on the depth chart, and was named the starter the week before the opener. But the loss to Pittsburgh was disastrous and the Browns decided to make a quick change.

    In his three-year career, Frye has completed 354 of 568 passes for 3,490 yards, with 14 touchdown passes and 24 interceptions, for an efficiency rating of 70.2. He has started in 19 of his 21 appearances.

    With the Seahawks, Frye will be the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart, behind starter Matt Hasselbeck and primary backup Seneca Wallace, who recently signed a contract extension. The Seahawks have been seeking another veteran quarterback since releasing David Greene in the final cutdown to the 53-player roster.

    It looks like a big day for a Bengals defense that may be returning to their opportunistic form of 2005.

    You probably mean Anderson, because the only Derrick Johnson I know plays linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Yeah, whatever his name is...

    :

    It could be Doug Johnson and it wouldn't be any better for Cleveland....I doubt Derrick could help them either


    Tim Couch anyone?

    I like this move. Frye is a much more mobile QB than Anderson. Mobile QBs drive the Bengals nuts. I doubt Quinn gets much action because he hasn't had much practice time. He must be hurting where reps and knowing the playbook are concerned.

    What a mess the Browns organization is in...

    trade your starter and re-sign a guy you just released 10 days ago.

    Talk about a directionless franchise.

    There's a baseball team in southwestern Ohio that the same could be said about.

    They are looking for an excuse to start Quinn.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Re: Browns deal Frye to the Seahawks

    How in the world can anyone have confidence in decision-makers who publicly say Frye (Crennell, Savage) won a preseason competition, then can the winner halfway through the opener? I don't know if directionless or clueless are strong enough adjectives. I feel for Browns fans, having been through Mike Brown's mismanagement. I'm sure the days of Brian Sipe, Bernie, Bynar, Cardiac Kids, Jim Brown, Leroy Kelly, et al seem like something you'll never see again. Been there, done that, it ain't fun.

    Hopefully Quinn doesn't start and murder/destroy us. Probably unlikely, but you never know.

    Brady Quinn will crap his pants when he sees Justin Smith and Robert Geathers.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Just moving Quinn up the depth chart. And getting a pick in the process.
