Ladanian Tomlinson signs 2-year deal with Jets; Browns trade Brady Quinn to Broncos

Fooch's Update: The New York Jets agreed to terms on a 2-year deal with Ladanian Tomlinson.  With Thomas Jones heading to the Kansas City Chiefs, Tomlinson will be battling Shonn Greene for playing time.  I'd imagine Greene will be the #1 guy, but LDT will certainly get a good number of carries.

And so we've had two high profile QB trades today (/sarcasm).  This isn't 49ers specific, but it does impact the 49ers, given that they'll face the Broncos in London in 2010.  The Broncos were in need of a long-term answer at QB and are hoping they've traded for that answer.  The Broncos have reportedly acquired Brady Quinn from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for FB Peyton Hillis, a 6th-round pick in 2011 and a conditional 2012 draft pick (no round specified).

The Broncos dealt Jay Cutler last offseason to the Bears in a deal that brought them QB Kyle Orton.  Orton had his moments last year, but was not a long term option.  Our Broncos blog, Mile High Report (link above), just got the news up and will surely have plenty of analysis in the coming days.

Thoughts on what this does for the Broncos and Browns for next year?  And also how it might affect the draft?
