Brady Quinn wants one last crack at the NFL.
The Boston Globe reported Sunday that Quinn is making a comeback attempt months after starting a broadcast career with FOX Sports. The former Browns first-round pick — who played for five teams in a career that spanned from 2007 to 2013 — has been working out in Florida with former NFL quarterback Jeff Christensen.
Christensen has also worked with Jimmy Garoppolo (turning him from high school linebacker to a quarterback), Drew Stanton and Kirk Cousins, amongst others.
From an outside perspective, it’s easy to see why Quinn would get the itch to return. The free-agent market for quarterbacks is wildly unimpressive, and the 30-year-old Quinn must be thinking, “Hey, I’m just as good as half those guys!” And he might be right.
That said, it’s a hard sell to say Quinn can help a team as a player in 2015. His biggest hurdle is the first one, of course: Finding someone who will give him a shot.
