Former Notre Dame star Brady Quinn attempting comeback



The NFL career of Brady Quinn is no more. potentially alive again.

According to NFL Media’s Dan Hanzus, Quinn has been working with former NFL quarterback Jeff Christensen, who has also worked with the likes of Drew Stanton and Kirk Cousins in the past.

Remember, he never made an official retirement statement. Yes, he made the decision to join Fox Sports last year; hanging up his cleats and picking up a microphone.

“Obviously, nothing compares to playing quarterback, but I am looking forward to this next career challenge and the tremendous opportunity it affords me to remain close to the sport I love at both the collegiate and professional levels,” says a quote attributed to Quinn last summer right before he joined FOX Sports as a college football and NFL studio and game analyst.


The St. Louis Rams signed Quinn last October. To make room on the active roster, the Rams released offensive lineman Brandon Washington and place starting quarterback Sam Bradford on injured reserve. It didn’t work out though, as Quinn never through a pass in St. Louis.

Brady Quinn was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the first round (#22 overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, and New York Jets. Brady Quinn is best known for his unprecedented slide on draft day. He was considered a sure-fire top ten pick, possibly #1 overall. Many thought he’d go #3 to Cleveland, but he went to the Brownies at #22 instead.

Brady, who threw for just 12 TD passes in his entire NFL career, with a QBR of 64.4.
