In a stunning move, the Cleveland Browns have traded away Charlie Frye, their starting quarterback, to the Seattle Seahawks for undisclosed draft picks.
Browns starting quarterback Charlie Frye, benched before halftime in the season opener, was traded to Seattle for an undisclosed draft pick on Tuesday, a stunningly swift move as Cleveland clears the way for rookie Brady Quinn.
Frye was dealt less than 48 hours after playing poorly and being pulled in the second quarter by coach Romeo Crennel for backup Derek Anderson in the Browns’ 34-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Browns said Frye must pass a physical for the trade to be completed. Cleveland also signed free agent quarterback Ken Dorsey, cut 10 days ago by the club, to a one-year contract.
Amid the changes, the Browns have not identified a starter for Sunday’s home game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The team has several options, including allowing Quinn, the former Notre Dame four-year star, to make his NFL debut.
Amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this happen. Trading your starting quarterback? After one game?!
As a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, who hold Cleveland’s pick in the first round next year’s draft, I’m quite pleased.
