Brady Quinn trades football for broadcast booth

Ahhh, remember when Brady Quinn fell so far in the first round ofthe 2007 NFL draft, and the Cleveland Browns supposedly got a steal with the 22nd pick? Well, the first 21 teams were proven right (and Johnny Manziel just went 22nd to the Browns after a first-round slide, if you believe in bad omens).

Quinn never become a functional NFL quarterback, but still ended up getting jobs through last season. He couldn't find another NFL team to pay him for this season, so Fox hired the former Notre Dame star as a studio analyst.
