Should Rams Trade for Brady Quinn?

Let’s start some totally uniformed speculation.  The Rams are in need of a QB for the future.  The Browns have a young QB they refuse to play, even after the starter completed only 2 passes in the most recent game.  Of course, I am talking about Brady Quinn.

Brady Quinn has put his Cleveland-area home on the market and rumors are swirling that he is on the trading block with Cleveland.  Head Coach Eric Mangini has not been afraid to trade away any of the Browns big-name players in 2009.

Brady Quinn was highly touted coming out of Notre Dame and has prototypical QB size and arm strength.  He dropped to the 22nd pick in the first round and so he has a cap-friendly deal.  Both facts are perfect for the Rams.  Quinn makes $1.72 million this season and $2 million next season provided he does not take 70% of the snaps in 2009.  At this point, Quinn could be the best QB on the Rams roster for 2010 and beyond.  The Rams need a franchise QB and Quinn has the potential to be that QB.

Some problems working against the Rams here is the fact that the Rams are tight against the cap and have had to release players such as Chris Draft to save even $300,000.  Could they even add about $1.2 million dollars to their cap?  Also, Quinn is a free agent after 2010, so the Rams would have to lock up Quinn long-term as soon as they got him into the fold.  Also, Quinn is far from a proven NFL quarterback, but provided he was put into the right situation, he can still become a star.

Will the Rams be the right situation for Quinn?
