Cleveland Browns

Frye off to Seattle

By Pat McManamon Published: September 11, 2007

Charlie Frye's days with the Browns appear to have ended.

WTAM, part of the the team's flagship radio network, reported this morning that the Browns are trying to trade Frye today. If he can't be traded, he might be cut to make room for Ken Dorsey. football writer Jay Glazier is reporting that the Browns have traded Frye to the Seattle Seahawks for a sixth-round pick. The Seahawks have been seeking a backup quarterback so that they can move current backup Seneca Wallace into other positions around the field.

The Browns made no comments as of early afternoon.

Other speculation concerning Frye had centered around a deal with either the Atlanta Falcons or New York Giants.

The Giants have lost starter Eli Manning for up to a month with a shoulder injury sustained in an Opening Day loss Sunday night at Dallas. The Falcons' quarterback situation has been in turmoil since Michael Vick was charged in connection with a dog-fighting operation this summer. Joey Harrington did not play well in Atlanta's loss at Minnesota.

Going to another team would be quite a turnaround for Frye, the former University of Akron quarterback.

Two days ago he was the team's starting quarterback in the season opener. He completed 4-of-10 passes for 34 yards in the Browns' 34-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Frye threw an interception and was sacked five times.
