Brady Quinn Thought About Playing Baseball During NFL Lockout

"Now starting in right field for the Colorado Rockies, No. 9, Brady Quinn!" It's not something we'll ever actually hear while at Coors Field, but fans in the lower levels of the minor leagues could have heard it, possibly in Casper or Tri-City, had the NFL lockout never been resolved.

In Mike Klis' article on Brady Quinn's development as a quarterback during the lockout, the man under center mentions that he thought about a baseball tryout. And the Colorado Rockies' Bill Schmidt likely would have given Quinn one. I have a feeling, though, that Quinn wouldn't have wanted to travel on buses to the small towns of the Pioneer and Northwest leagues, the lowest levels of the Rockies' stateside minor league teams.

It's better to be the No. 2 quarterback on an NFL team than to travel to the middle of nowhere in a crowded bus with a bunch of kids in the minor leagues, right? Right.
