OconRecon Posted December 15, 2008 Report Share Posted December 15, 2008 http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/pgStory?conte...p;photo=8919664 Quarterback: Derek Anderson, Browns If the Browns part ways with general manager Phil Savage, his handling of Cleveland's quarterback situation will be a contributing factor. Anderson entered the off season as a restricted free agent with considerable trade value following a 29-touchdown effort in 2007. Savage instead decided to keep Brady Quinn on the bench and re-sign Anderson to a three-year contract extension that paid him $8 million for this season. Big, big mistake. Anderson had completed just 50.2 percent of his passes and lost his starting job to Quinn before landing on injured reserve with a knee injury. The Browns are expected to trade Anderson during the off-season but won't receive anywhere near the same compensation were he dealt earlier. -- Alex Marvez I'm not sure DA deserves to top the list, but most agree this decision didn't work out. The most troubling part of this story is headlines like this further decrease his marketability. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
