Cleveland Browns Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-04


Cleveland Browns Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-04
Nothing has changed in the Browns' quarterback dilemma.


Despite all the wild speculation of the two months leading up to the draft, Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn are still on the roster and coach Eric Mangini is no closer to naming a starter than he was when he was hired Jan. 8.

Between now and the start of training camp in July, Quinn and Anderson will be on the field for three minicamps, but even after those sessions Mangini said he will not be ready to name a starter.

"Competition at every position is a good thing," Mangini said. "I've said it before. Who should be the starter will reveal itself through the competition. That's what's important to me - making the right decision and not putting a timeline on it."

Anderson and Charlie Frye were pitted in a quarterback battle in 2007. Frye won by default and then lost his job midway through the second quarter of the season opener.
