Quinn Signs, Minter Retires

Brady Quinn has ended his 11 day holdout and finally signs with the Cleveland Browns. He agreed to a five-year contract worth 20.2 million, with 7.75 million guaranteed.

Mike Minter, Carolina's career leader in games started and tackles, has decided to call it quits after 10 seasons.

"I thought about it long and hard," Minter said. "I don't want to be at 80 or 85 percent, but want to be remembered as a player who always played at 100 percent."

Minter has had trouble with his knees and wasn't sure his body could complete another grueling NFL season.
