Veteran quarterback Jake Delhomme agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.
Delhomme, who visited with the Browns on Thursday, is going to be given every chance to be the starter, reports La Canfora.
Delhomme was released by the Carolina Panthers last week after seven seasons.
The Browns have been actively shopping for a quarterback, a position they haven't been able to adequately fill since their NFL expansion return in 1999. Earlier this week, the team acquired backup Seneca Wallace in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks and released Derek Anderson, who took a swipe at Cleveland fans on his way out of town.
The Browns' interest in Delhomme seems to indicate a reluctance to hand the starting job back to Quinn, who has struggled as a pro. Quinn is just 3-9 in 12 career starts with Cleveland, but some of the former Notre Dame star's inconsistency probably can be attributed to the Browns' lack of talent, as well as coaching and front-office changes in recent years.
