Browns Sign Free-Agent QB Thad Busby

July 30, 1999

BEREA, Ohio (AP) _ The Cleveland Browns, looking for another quarterback after John Dutton broke his foot in training camp this week, signed free-agent quarterback Thad Busby on Friday.

Busby was signed by San Francisco as an undrafted free agent last year but was cut during training camp.

Busby, 24, was the Atlantic Coast Conference offensive player of the year in 1997 at Florida State. He ranks fourth in school history with 411 completions.

Dutton, who was competing for the team’s third-string quarterback spot, broke a bone in his left foot during drills and will be in a cast for four weeks.
