Substandard field general Brady Quinn is reportedly rehabbing and continuing to search for work in the NFL.
The 29-year-old Quinn, who underwent microscopic lumbar discectomy surgery on November 26, is currently a free agent without any suitors.
Quinn has been employed by six organizations since being taken by the Cleveland Browns 22nd overall in 2007.
Prior to pocketing checks a professional, Quinn established the quarterback record for weightlifting at the combine by benching 225 pounds an astounding 24 times.
Roughly two years later, the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Quinn was featured on the October 2009 front cover of Muscle & Fitness magazine.
In the article, titled “The NFL’s Hardest Working Quarterback,” Quinn spoke about blending strength and agility exercises to prevent becoming too bulky to perform as a signal-caller.
However, Quinn’s exhaustive workouts have proved to be counterproductive and the muscleman has completed an atrocious 53.8 percent of his passes for 12 touchdowns, against 17 interceptions, in 24 games.
The greatest quality a signal-caller can possess is accuracy and Quinn lacks even a shred of touch on the pigskin.
Over the past quarter-century, the eight most prolific passers are generally considered to be Joe Montana, Dan Marino, John Elway, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Brett Favre.
All of the above superstars had ample strength and managed to flourish in the collision sport known as football.
Still, not one of those players was ever excessively built to the degree that the former leader of the Fighting Irish is.
For the Lou Ferrigno wannabe to have any chance to resurface in the league, Quinn must shed a decent portion of mass and become leaner.
Contrary to the thoughts of some onlookers, teams are not going to shun Quinn because of his balky back.
In actuality, NFL franchises will ignore Brady Quinn because he’s ballooned and incompetent under center.by
