Trade Quinn if return is right

We are six games into 2009 and with each passing game it becomes more and more evident the quarterback of the future isn't in a Browns uniform. So the Browns should trade Brady Quinn before the 4 p.m. deadline today - but only if they get enough in return.

If Coach Eric Mangini can get a second-round pick for Quinn he should make the deal. Waiting until the draft next year could increase Quinn's value because so many teams need quarterbacks - the Bills, Rams, Panthers and Titans among others. Those teams could try to outbid each other. But the opposite could happen. If the Browns finish badly enough to get a top five pick in the draft they will be in position to draft Jake Locker from the University of Washington or Sam Bradford from Oklahoma - although Bradford's right shoulder is a red flag.

Quinn would be useless to the Browns if they take Locker or Bradford and his trade value would decrease. If they can get a second-round pick from one of the bottom feeders today, they should make the deal.
