Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk reports that, per a league source, quarterback Brady Quinn has been getting “roughly half” of the first-team reps at quarterback in practice this week.
It’s not known if the Broncos are planning to use Quinn instead of Tim Tebow as a change-of-pace quarterback or if they’re preparing for the possibility of pulling Tebow. It’s also possible this report stems from a source leaking misinformation meant to distract the Steelers, though Florio says his report comes from a “league” source, not a “team” one.
This notion has been floating around the Denver Post all week. I, like Rodney Harrison in Florio’s report, thought it was utterly ridiculous. Not so ridiculous anymore.
