The Cleveland Browns simplified the question of which of their three quarterbacks to start—by trading starter Charlie Frye to Seattle. Frye, who won out over backup QB Derek Anderson during the preseason, threw for 34 yards with one interception and five sacks last weekend against Pittsburgh. Cleveland parted with Frye for a sixth-round draft pick, the AP reports.
The trade bumps Anderson to the starting position and brings first-round draft pick Brady Quinn to no. 2 in the depth chart. The Browns also re-signed free-agent quarterback Ken Dorsey to serve as emergency backup and help groom Quinn for the starting job. Cleveland GM Phil Savage says that Quinn could play "at some point during this year."
