Brady Quinn shares online jabs with Deshaun Watson's personal QB coach
Akron Beacon Journal Some might call it quarterback-on-quarterback violence. Former Browns signal caller Brady Quinn has stepped into the fray regarding Deshaun Watson and his inability to stay on the field.

But the reality of the situation is Quinn hasn’t said anything that that hasn’t crossed the mind of others given Watson’s $230 million guaranteed contract. Some will argue that he’s out of pocket and he very well might be given his lack of success in the NFL. Players talk about being brothers on the field, but to a certain extent that changes after – especially when a former player goes into the media.
They’re being paid for their opinions and expertise. In other words, it’s business. .
