Cleveland Browns: Jake Delhomme Participating in Workouts as McCoy Leads Team
Browns Looking To Push Forward In 2011
The Cleveland Browns are as hurt by outside factors as they are by their own front office missteps. The last year has seen another turnover in the coaching staff, so getting on the practice field is a must.
With the lockout in full force, the players are forced to organize their own workouts to build team chemistry.
The Brown, who gave Colt McCoy a playbook prior to the lockout and probably gladly paid the $50,000 fine, now sit back and watch as their young quarterback takes the leadership role.
McCoy has been organizing workouts, and former starting quarterback Jake Delhomme now is participating in them.
Quarterback Jake Delhomme and rookie tight end Jordan Cameron were among the new faces at the Browns' second player-organized minicamp being held this week at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea.
Rookie receiver Greg Little was invited but was unable to attend. Rookie fullback Owen Marecic was also believed to still be in classes at Stanford and unable to participate
Delhomme still is under contract for the 2011 season, and most likely is hoping to battle for the backup position at this point. Seneca Wallace also is under contract.
The Browns have had a revolving door at the quarterback position for the last several years, and there really never has been a franchise quarterback in place for the team since they came back in 1999.
Tim Couch held that designation briefly, but injuries and an emotional breakdown ended his career in Cleveland.
Since Couch, many quarterbacks have tried to be the savior for the Browns and none of them have had any real success.
Brady Quinn was drafted in the first round in 2007, but he was mismanaged and prone to injury. Team President Mike Holmgren and General Manager Tom Heckert traded Quinn to Denver for Peyton Hillis prior to last season.
It is safe to say the Browns got the better end of that deal.
Delhomme came in last year to be the starter but also fell victim to injuries. McCoy eventually became the starter and looked good in a limited amount of games after he became the third quarterback on the roster to suffer a high ankle sprain.
My feeling is McCoy will start, Wallace will be the backup, and the Browns will try and convince Delhomme to either take a paycut, or move him.
You do not pay a guy like Delhomme to be your third string quarterback
