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. Quinn, a first-round draft choice of the Browns in 2007, hasn’t been subtle in his criticism of Watson, who has been out with a shoulder injury for two games and was yanked after a quarter against the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday.

He said this on his Fox Sports Radio show, according to reports: “Everyone with a medical opinion has cleared Deshaun Watson. The situation is almost similar to a kid getting a $230 million trust fund. You ask them to get a job and they have no incentive to do it.

” Deshaun Watson injury:Kevin Stefanski awaiting 'all results' as Browns take QB's injury 'day to day' That didn’t sit well with Watson’s personal quarterback coach and friend, Quincy Avery, who replied on X: “Brady, I’m a be real. You don’t know what the f**k you are talking ‘bout, and sit behind a microphone gossiping like a little high school chick. ” Quinn ended the conversation quickly by referencing massages and…ANYWHOO…the sports world has its latest soap opera.

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. .
