Jeff Brohm to help Cleveland Browns in season finale

Quarterback Jeff Brohm, the number one draft pick of the XFL's Orlando Rage, will join the NFL's Cleveland Browns for the team's season finale Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

The Rage, holding a weeklong, full-squad mini-camp at their Citrus Bowl training complex, announced Brohm's departure today.

"This is a great opportunity for Jeff and a move that will help the Browns get through the rest of their regular season," said Rage head coach Galen Hall. "We wish Jeff well with the Cleveland and look forward to his eventual return to the Rage."

Added Rage General Manager Tom Veit, "Jeff is a tremendous athlete and person and we felt it was in everyone's best interest for him to be able to take advantage of this opportunity. One of the XFL's stated goals is to create a place where football players can further their careers, and we wish Jeff well as he does just that. In the long run, we are certain that this experience will pay great dividends to all concerned."

"This is an outstanding opportunity for me to finish the season with Cleveland, but realistically, I have signed a one-game contract," Brohm said. "I fully expect to be back with the Rage in January and look forward to opening the season Feb. 3 against the Chicago Enforcers."

The fourth player selected in last October's inaugural XFL draft, Brohm is no stranger to the NFL. A former star at the University of Louisville, Brohm began his pro career with the San Diego Chargers, and was a member of the team's 1995 Super Bowl squad. He also served as backup to the San Francisco 49ers Steve Young for two years, spent a season on injured reserve with the Tampa Bay Bucs and was with the Denver Broncos in 1999.
