Bad news for the gang at Don’t Draft Brady Quinn.com
: Sports Illustrated’s
Don Banks reported late yesterday the Browns “are locked in” on Quinn
with Saturday’s third pick. Banks says owner Randy Lerner has long favored the Notre Dame quarterback, and that Phil Savage and Romeo Crennel will listen, if only because it’ll help them keep their jobs.
Still, the news hasn’t deterred yet another online petition from joining the debate. Draft Troy.com
aims to “Help Put Troy Smith in Cleveland and Stop the Bleeding in BrownsTown.” More than 1,800 signatures have been posted, though not all of them are dying, exactly, to see Smith in a Browns uniform. “No,” reads one post. “Troy deserves better.” – Jason Nedley
