Jake Christopher Delhomme is a professional football player, who played as a quarterback for the team of Cleveland Browns of the NFL. After playing his NCAA ball for Southwestern Louisiana, Jake Delhomme went undrafted in 1997. He was signed by the New Orleans Saints that same year.

Delhomme ended his college career at Southwestern Louisiana ranked 22nd in all NCCA history in passing yards and 28th in total offense.

He was with the Saints from 1997 through 2002. In 1998 and 1999, he played for NFL Europe. In 1999, he made his NFL debut with New Orleans. He played sparingly until he signed with the Panthers. In 2003, he joined the team and became their starting QB. On 5th March 2010, he was released by the Panthers team.

For the first three seasons with Carolina, Delhomme did not miss a game. In 2005, he was selected to the Pro Bowl. In 2006, he saw action in 13 games and in 2007, due to injury, he participated in just three contests. In the third game of the season, he suffered an elbow injury that sidelined him for the rest of the year.

In the NFL, Delhomme has played in 70 games, completing 59.7-percent of his passes for 14,591 yards. He’s thrown 100 touchdowns and 64 interceptions. His QB rating stands at 85.2.

On 13th March, 2010, he signed a two year deal with the team of Cleveland Browns and won the starting quaterback position over Seneca Wallace.

Delhomme has excellent field vision and is a proven leader who can make big plays when in the clutch. The six-foot-two, 215-pound quarterback uses a compact throwing motion and quick release. He’s good at working the ball into tight openings and his drop is good. At times, he makes poor decisions, which can be detrimental when under pressure. He can be inconsistent and streaky. Delhomme needs to refine his mechanics in order to become more consistent.
