Jake Christopher Delhomme (pronounced /dəˈloʊm/; born January 10, 1975 in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana) is an American football quarterback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League. Delhomme played college football at Louisiana-Lafayette, before being signed by the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 1997. After playing for the Saints and spending time in NFL Europe, Delhomme played as the Carolina Panthers starting Quarterback from 2003–2009. Following his release from the Panthers after a disappointing 2009 season, he signed with the Cleveland Browns in 2010.

Delhomme was born to Jerry and Marcia Delhomme, both Cajuns; the last name Delhomme translates into "of the man". Jake's grandfather bred horses, and Jake's father was a jockey who began racing at eight years old. Jake has called horses his "first love", and today he, his father, and his brother own and train thoroughbreds. Delhomme played both quarterback and defensive back for Teurlings Catholic; he made the all-state team in high school ironically not as quarterback, but on defense.

Delhomme played college football for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (then named the University of Southwestern Louisiana), his mother's alma mater. The only true freshman quarterback to start for a Division I school in 1993, his passer efficiency rating ranked second among NCAA freshmen quarterbacks. Playing on a team with future NFL wide receiver Brandon Stokley and offensive lineman Anthony Clement, the Ragin' Cajuns won the Big West Conference twice, and finished with three winning seasons. During his senior year, he led the Ragin' Cajuns to an improbable win over highly favored Texas A&M 29–22.
