Charlie Frye's days with the Browns have ended.
The Browns confirmed this afternoon that they have traded the former University of Akron quarterback to the Seattle Seahawks for an undisclosed draft choice, pending Frye passing a physical examination. The Browns also said they have signed free-agent quarterback Ken Dorsey to a one-year contract.
Frye started Sunday in the regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He completed 4-of-10 passes for 34 yards with one interception before leaving midway through the second quarter. He had been sacked five times in the game.
Last season, Frye started 13 games, compiling a 4-9 record. He completed 252-of-393 passes for 2,454 yards with 10 touchdowns and 17 interceptions for a quarterback rating of 72.0.
The Browns selected Frye in the third round (No. 67 overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. In three seasons in Cleveland, Frye appeared in 21 games (19 starts) and was 354-of-567 passing for 3,490 yards with 14 touchdowns and 23 interceptions for a 71.1 quarterback rating.
Dorsey was waived Sept. 1 when the Browns trimmed their roster after their final preseason game. He appeared in one game last year for the Browns and has appeared in 12 games, including 10 starts, during his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers and the Browns.
FOXSports.com football writer Jay Glazier reported that the Browns would receive a sixth-round pick from the Seahawks. The Seahawks have been seeking a backup quarterback so they can move current backup Seneca Wallace to other positions around the field, he said.
