I was present for all of these acquisitions, anyway. Really.
Browns' QB Brady Quinn gets traded to Denver, for FB Peyton Hillis. Hillis was barely used last year in Denver. He is a tough runner, a nice reciever, and a good blocker. Hillis should help the Browns with power running; he may develop into a much-needed offensive weapon... but this is a great trade for the Broncos (especially considering Hillis barely even had a role in McDaniels' offense).
IMO, Cleveland was much better off, standing pat, with the upside of Brady Quinn (or maybe even DA), rather than a skinny, decrepit, rag-armed signal caller (Delhomme). Yeah, then again, maybe they draft someone high... but most of the QB prospects this year are garbage (again, IMO). They should have made a greater commitment to the prospect they already had. This is changing for the sake of change. Same old Browns. Lots of action, but inevitably going nowhere.
Same with the Jets, who sign LT, after letting go of Thomas Jones. They also should have stood pat, right there.
That's some really convoluted football management. I must say.
