Redskins release QB John Beck

The Washington Redskins have released QB John Beck. This should not come as a surprise to anyone for two reasons:

  1. Beck finished last season with 80 completions out of 132 attempts, 858 yards, two passing touchdowns and four interceptions.
  2. The Redskins just drafted two QBs, No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III, and Kirk Cousins from Michigan State.

The Skins are obviously looking for a fresh start and considering all the QB issues they’ve had over the past few seasons I think it is a good idea. Some people are saying that since Cousins won 27 games as a starter for three years at Michigan State that drafting him as the backup QB could be setting the stage for another QB controversy. I get the sense that the Redskins front office, and the fans, are ready to stick with one talented QB, Robert Griffin III, and watch him develop over several years.  I would say that RG3 would need to have a really terrible first year to bring on a QB controversy.
