Cleveland coach Romeo Crennel had a conference call with Seattle reporters this morning, during which he was asked about Charlie Frye:
"I didn't decide he wasn't right for the team. I decided in those 20 minutes that we weren't playing well enough and I felt like the team needed a change so I changed quarterbacks and went to (Derek) Anderson. Then after that some trade possibilities arrives and came up and we decided to make the trade so we did and then we've moved on.
"Charlie is a great competitor. Charlie wants to win. He works very hard at his craft, it just didn't work out for him here. I know that he will do everything he can to be the best player he can there in Seattle."
