Kosar thinks 'fresh start' may help Quinn
BEREA — Bernie Kosar says Brady Quinn might be better off elsewhere.
Kosar, the quarterback of three Browns teams that reached AFC title games in the 1980s, jumped into speculation swirling around Quinn in advance of today’s trade deadline.
“Multiple systems and multiple coaches haven’t worked out in Cleveland,” Kosar said on radio station WKNR. “Maybe a fresh start will help him out.”
Kosar’s opinions have been a staple of the Browns’ expansion era, but they carry more weight now that he is a team consultant.
Asked if Quinn will be traded before the deadline, Kosar hesitated.
"Ummm, you know what, I think it would be tough … It’s a tough spot for him right now,” Kosar said. “I personally like seeing that he’s unhappy not playing. You don’t want a young quarterback that’s happy being a backup.
