Need to get your football jones? Check out SI.com's Don Banks article Many teams added new No. 2 QBs, but who has best backup plan?. It is hard to believe that there are so many ex-Cleveland Browns serving in backup capacity elsewhere: Colt McCoy (49ers), Bruce Gradkowski (Steelers), Luke McCown, (Saints), Josh Johnson (Bengals) and Derek Anderson (Panthers). Can you believe that Brady Quinn and Seneca Wallace are still available? [Note: Quinn has now been signed by the Seahawks and Wallace by the Raiders. that means 7 teams, over 20% of the NFL, has an ex Brown as a backup quarterback. hat must be a record.]
