Trent Dilfer update

It looks like the Browns are trying to trade Trent Dilfer to San Francisco, but they will not release him:

Backup quarterback Trent Dilfer has not asked the Browns to release him or to trade him, he said Monday.

“I have not asked for anything,” Dilfer said, adding he is very happy playing for the Browns.

Dilfer was responding to reports that the Browns tried to acquire quarterbacks Joey Harrington and Marques Tuiasosopo during draft weekend.

General Manager Phil Savage emphatically stated that the team would not release Dilfer if another backup for Charlie Frye was acquired, adding he only wanted to strengthen the team.

This will be a good move if they can get at least a fourth round pick, maybe a fifth. That said, going after Marques Tuiasosopo is a joke. He’s terrible.

Update – The Browns have completed a trade with the Niners, sending Dilfer to San Fran in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick and Ken Dorsey. Buckeye fans have fond memories of Cee Grant sacking Dorsey to clinch the 2002 National Championship. Frankly, I have no idea whether he would be an adequate backup to Charlie Frye. Savage probably needs to find another veteran QB.
