    Quinn pays visit to the Browns, his team of choice

    [size=13pt]Quinn pays visit to the Browns, his team of choice [/size]


    BEREA, Ohio (AP) Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn dressed in a light orange shirt for his visit to the Cleveland Browns. If he gets his wish, he'll soon have a matching orange helmet.

    Quinn, who grew up in Dublin, Ohio, has said he wants to play for the Browns, the team he rooted for as a kid. On Thursday, he spent a few hours touring the team's headquarters and interviewing with coaches.

    He arrived in Cleveland on Wednesday night and was taken to dinner by club officials.

    The Browns have the No. 3 pick in this month's NFL draft, and they could use it to select Quinn, regarded as the second-best QB prospect behind LSU's JaMarcus Russell.

    Russell visited the Browns on Wednesday as did Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson, another player who could wind up with Cleveland.

    Last month, Browns owner Randy Lerner, general manager Phil Savage and coach Romeo Crennel attended Quinn's workout in South Bend, Ind. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound Quinn, who didn't throw or run at the NFL Combine, was presumed to be the No. 1 overall pick. However, his stock began to fall during last season and he was bypassed in the eyes of most draft experts after Russell outplayed him in LSU's win over the Fighting Irish in the Sugar Bowl.

    Cleveland's quarterback situation is as uncertain as ever. Charlie Frye started most of last season before hurting his wrist. While he was sidelined, backup Derek Anderson played well enough that Crennel said Anderson had earned a chance to win the starting job in training camp this summer.

    Also, Savage recently inquired about the availability of Kansas City's Trent Green. The Chiefs are trying to trade the two-time Pro Bowler, who missed eight games last season after suffering a serious concussion on a hard hit in the opener.

    Quinn or Russell could fall to the Browns, depending on what Oakland and Detroit decided to do with the respective No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks.

    Crennel is likely to get a strong endorsement on Quinn from Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis. Crennel and Weis are good friends, having coached on Bill Belichick's staff with the New England Patriots.

    Well at least they can win some of the games that aren't so big.........

    It's a start in the right direction.

    PLaying for a professional team in the state of Ohio has always been a bad idea. Quinn must not have his head on right. I don't want him anymore.

    The same could have been said about the Colts and Petyon Manning when he was drafted....

    It would certainly make the vikings decision easier if he was gone.
