plans to be more than a one-year fix at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns.
Dilfer, acquired in a weekend trade from the Seattle Seahawks, signed a four-year contract Tuesday with Cleveland, taking over a position the Browns
haven't gotten right since coming back to the NFL in 1999.
Dilfer, who turns 33 Sunday, brings a Super Bowl
ring and considerable experience to Cleveland after enduring personal and professional
hardships during his career.
"I feel like I've got a lot of football left," he said.
Dilfer came to the Browns with one year left on his contract at $1.2 million. The Browns, though, decided to invest more time into Dilfer, seeing him
as not only a proven veteran, but as someone who can win games and tutor young quarterbacks Luke McCown
and Josh Harris.
Hmm, I dont think Dilfer is the answer to anyone's QB problems. He has a SB ring, but you have to thank that Raven defense for that. Maybe he will be
able to help with the progress for the younger QB's though, like Parcells tried with Vinny last year.
