Brady Quinn almost joined the television ranks with Tim Tebow. He thought he was bound to appear on Sports Center as an analyst before he would be on Monday Night Football as a player. During a radio interview with Sirius XM, Quinn said that he was ready to move into TV when the Miami Dolphins called.

Quinn agreed to terms with the Dolpins on Monday and has arrived in Miami as the likely backup to starter Ryan Tannehill. Matt Moore, who was suspected to be Tannehill’s backup, has struggled with a shoulder injury in recent weeks.
He was a first-round selection of the Cleveland Browns back in 2007. He’s entering his 7th year in the league, but did not record a single stat in 2010, 2011 and 2013. During 2013, he was with the Seahawks, Rams and Jets. He has thrown for 3,043 yards, 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions during his career. While Quinn hasn’t had a particularly successful career in the NFL, he’s been around the block. He can provide a veteran presence. He commented on his struggles during the interview.
“I don’t think you realize the pressure right away of being 1st Round pick but you see it quickly from fans and media,” He said on Sirius XM.
