Brady Quinn sells Cleveland-area home

LeBron James isn't the only high-profile athlete to leave Cleveland this year.

QuinnQuinnFormer Browns first-round pick Brady Quinn recently sold his Cleveland-area home this past May, a source tells the AFC North blog. The Avon Lake, Ohio, property was first put on the market in October, which caused a media firestorm because Quinn had just been benched in favor of Derek Anderson and was the subject of trade rumors.

It turns out Cleveland did trade Quinn in the offseason to the Denver Broncos. Quinn now is in a three-way tussle for playing time with quarterback Kyle Orton and Broncos first-round pick Tim Tebow.

Quinn's tenure in Cleveland didn't pan out as expected. After being drafted in the first round in 2007, he was thought to be the Browns' long-term solution at quarterback. But Quinn spent most of his career on the sidelines and later underperformed when his number was called.

After the Browns traded Quinn and released Anderson this offseason, Cleveland completely started over at quarterback by signing 12-year veteran Jake Delhomme in free agency.
