Browns, Delhomme agree to 2-year deal

CLEVELAND, OH - CLEVELAND (AP) - Free agent quarterback Jake Delhomme has agreed to terms on a 2-year contract with the Cleveland Browns.

The QB's agent, Rick Smith confirmed Delhomme's agreement with the Browns, who have been busy trying to fix a troublesome position. Delhomme,35, was released last week after seven seasons with the Carolina Panthers.

He had been scheduled to visit the New Orleans Saints, his hometown team, but canceled the trip. Delhomme visited the Browns on Thursday but left without a deal.

Delhomme is expected to compete for Cleveland's starting job with Brady Quinn. Earlier this week, the Browns acquired backup Seneca Wallace in a trade with Seattle and released Derek Anderson.
