The Browns will not trade for a quarterback once the lockout ends, general manager Tom Heckert told multiple reporters Tuesday afternoon.

Heckert was speaking during the club's Cleveland Browns Foundation golf tournament, held Tuesday in Akron, Ohio.

Heckert reportedly declined to talk about whether the Browns would be interested in former Giants WR Plaxico Burress, who was released from prison on Monday.

The way we see it

Heckert's comments about the club's lack of interest in trading for a passer takes them off the list of possible suitors for Eagles QB Kevin Kolb, widely regarded as the best young signalcaller who could be available via trade. The Browns seem likely to enter 2011 with second-year pro Colt McCoy as their starting quarterback.
