Jake Delhomme Will Start Next Season

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Jake Delhomme isn't ready to be a backup.

The former Carolina Panthers quarterback says he signed a

two-year contract with the Cleveland Browns because of their strong

finish following a struggling start last year, plus the addition of

Mike Holmgren as team president.

Delhomme, 35, chose the Browns over his hometown New Orleans

Saints, where he would have been a backup to Drew Brees.

Delhomme acknowledges he didn't play well last season, adding

that his five-interception performance in a playoff loss in 2008

led to his difficult start last season.

Delhomme threw eight touchdowns and 18 interceptions last year

before Carolina released him earlier this month.
