Vinny a possibility

The Browns do not have a veteran quarterback on their roster but may take a look at an older, ex-Brown to back up starter Charlie Frye. Coach Romeo Crennel did not dismiss his desire to sign Vinny Testeverde, whose agent said he has not filed his retirement papers yet and that his client would love to come back to Cleveland.

“It certainly wouldn’t be unat- tractive to him to be reunited with [Cren nel],” Azzarelli said. “And there’s no rea son he wouldn’t return to Cleve land. He cer tainly had a good time there.”

Crennel still wants to give current backup Ken Dorsey an opportunity and will wait until after training camp to decide whether or not to bring Testeverde on board. Crennel believes once Dorsey gets a feel for the system and his teammates, he will be fine.

The Browns should go after Testeverde no matter how Dorsey progresses through camp. Although over the hill at 42 years old, Vinny provides veteran leadership at the backup QB spot and already possesses a strong knowledge of the system. Should Charlie Frye go down with injury early in the season, the Browns would find themselves in a huge hole by having to plug in Dorsey as the starter. He does not have the arm strength and I would not feel comfortable at all having him as our starter if Frye were to get hurt.
