Browns QB Charlie
Frye to the Seattle Seahawks, Bryce Fisher leaves
The Browns quarterback Charlie
Frye was traded on Tuesday to the Seattle Seahawks, while the
Seahawks traded Bryce Fisher to the Tennessee Titans.
Cleveland Browns traded today quarterback Charlie Frye to the
Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick. Frye
started for the Browns during Week 1, taking the spot from Derek
Anderson, but after a bad first half against the Steelers in the
opener, he was pulled out for completing 4 of 10 passes for 34
yards and an interception, while being sacked five times.
Quarterback Derek Anderson will likely take the starter job at
Cleveland, although rumors have it that first-round draft pick
Brady Quinn have a deal in place with the Browns and may become
the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns.
Charlie Frye was a third round pick for
the Cleveland Browns in 2005, with a career quarterback rating
of 70.2. "This trade was ultimately good for everyone
involved. It gives us some clarity at the position and gives
Charlie a fresh chance in another place...This will change
Brady's preparation during the week. It will give him more reps
and continue to improve his development for the day he takes
over," Cleveland general manager Phil Savage said on

Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks
defensive end Bryce Fisher was traded to the Tennessee Titans.
The seven-year veteran DE will be replaced by Darryl Tapp, who
was second round draft choice of the Seahawks in 2006. The
Fisher trade was the second Seahawk-to-Titans move in just under
two months, after cornerback Kelly Herndon was snatched by
Tennessee in June. Bryce Fisher started his pro career as a
seventh-round pick of Buffalo Bills in 2001.
