An industry source confirmed to ESPN.com that Quinn put his Avon Lake, Ohio, home up for sale Tuesday. Although the reason is unknown, the timing is very peculiar considering Quinn lost his starting job to Derek Anderson two weeks ago and the trade deadline is looming on Oct. 20.
According to the industry source, with the struggling economy it could take up to six months or a year to sell upper-end homes in the Cleveland area. The asking price is $775,000 for the five-bedroom, five-bathroom house, which is 4,561 square feet.
Quinn bought the Avon Lake property in June of 2007, just two months after he was drafted in the first round by Cleveland, the source confirmed.
Quinn entered this season as Cleveland's starting quarterback but was benched after 2½ games by Browns head coach Eric Mangini. Quinn threw for 400 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions as the Browns were 0-3 in that span. He has two years left on his current contract with the Browns.
