7. Trent Dilfer
The year after Jeff Garcia departed Cleveland on his one-year deal, Trent Dilfer entered as the Browns quarterback, signing a three-year deal with the team. Dilfer was brought in to be the bridge quarterback to Charlie Frye and started 11 games during the 2005 season.
Dilfer led the Browns to a 4-7 record during his 11 starts with the team while completing 60% of his passes. Opposed to some other quarterbacks on this list, these are stellar numbers. He threw 11 touchdowns and 12 interceptions as well.
Dilfer was shipped off to San Francisco only one year into his three-year deal for Ken Dorsey and a 2007 draft pick. He wound up starting six games for the 49ers in 2006 and called it a career following that season.
6. Colt McCoy
Colt McCoy was drafted by the Browns in the third round of the 2010 draft and started 21 games over three years. Throughout his time in Cleveland, he showed glimpses that made the city of Cleveland believe he had what it took to become the franchise quarterback that was sought after for so long. However, he showed even more negative attributes that led to the Browns moving on from him after just three seasons.
McCoy managed only six wins in his 21 attempts. Known for his accuracy in college could only muster a completion percentage of 58 percent during his time as the Browns signal-caller, however, he managed to throw more touchdowns than interceptions with 21 scores and 20 picks.
Following the 2013 season, McCoy was traded to San Francisco, ending his time as a Cleveland Brown. He played only one year for the 49ers before heading to the nation’s capital, where he is still on the roster in Washington.
