Quick, 6-foot-3 and 218 pounds, has long been a tempting breakout candidate thanks to his fleet feet, but in his first two seasons he's tallied just 29 grabs for 458 yards and four touchdowns.
"[P]robably the most improved player I've seen is Brian Quick," Schottenheimer said. "He's doing a great job. Another guy that we're giving an opportunity to. He's competing for playing time.

Over two seasons Quick has 29 catches for 458 yards (15.8 avg.) and four touchdowns.
