Browns Release Anderson

The Cleveland Browns terminated the contract of QB Derek Anderson Tuesday, opening the door for Brady Quinn to become the QB of the future for the Browns. Anderson was signed by Cleveland off waivers in 2005 and has been with the team ever since. He started 34 games during that time, including all 16 games of the 2007 season when he threw for 3,787 yards and 29 touchdowns.

"I want to thank Derek for everything that he gave to the Cleveland Browns organization over the last five years," said head coach Eric Mangini. "He did everything we asked of him and it was a pleasure to coach such a competitive person. I want to wish him all the best in the future."
