BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Once Eric Mangini picks a starting quarterback, the new Cleveland Browns coach intends
to stick with him.
Mangini said Sunday that he will not rotate his QBs, that he has no timetable on picking between Derek
Anderson and Brady Quinn and that he envisions both players staying on the Browns’ roster once the
regular season begins.
Mangini, who will spend the bulk of training camp evaluating them, shot down any thought of switching
starters on a weekly basis. He also said that once he declares Anderson or Quinn as the No. 1
quarterback, he intends to stay with his choice.
"Once you make that decision and go with that decision, then at that point you’re moving forward
with that group," Mangini said.
There’s a chance the Browns could be approached by other teams looking for a quarterback later this
summer, but Mangini also sees both Anderson and Quinn staying with the team for the foreseeable future.
"In my mind, Brady and D.A. will both be here," Mangini said.
Anderson and Quinn are expected to split playing time and practice reps over the next few weeks. The
Browns play their first preseason game Aug. 15 in Green Bay.
On Sunday, Anderson appeared to make better passes than Quinn during practice. Mangini said the twosome
came into camp in a dead heat for the starting job.
