Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel both won three Super Bowls as coordinators for the Patriots and now Weis is telling his friend Crennel, who is the head coach of the Browns, to trade up from the 3rd position to draft Brady Quinn.
“I’ve met Brady, and he’s a fine young man,” Crennel said Friday at the NFL scouting combine. “I know the guy who coaches Brady, and Brady has had a lot of success since he’s been in their system. I know that Brady is a good quarterback. Charlie told me that he’s really good, and we should trade up to get him.”
You have to love the job Weis does in promoting his kids to NFL teams. Some people like to try and downplay Weis’s NFL connections (like Ron Zook), but his connections to the NFL definitely shouldn’t be overlooked and if the Browns do end up taking Quinn 4th overall I can’t help but think it would be a major help in recruiting.
“Hey five star wide receiver, did you notice that Brady just got drafted by my close friend Romeo Crennel with the 3rd pick in the draft? Or that Corey Mays and Dan Stevenson ended up in the Patriots camp last year after being undrafted?”
