The Washington Redskins have reportedly signed a quarterback, just not the 2011 NFL free agent you might expect. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the team has signed former Jets backup Kellen Clemens to a one-year contract. That leaves them with John Beck and Clemens, with Rex Grossman likely to be re-signed and Donovan McNabb about to be dealt to Minnesota.
Clemens is a former second-round pick that never really panned out for the Jets. The 28-year old has thrown five touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 25 games (nine stars) in five seasons. The Oregon product was selected with the 49th overall pick in 2006.
Clemens is likely to be a backup or third-string quarterback when it is all said and done, though he does have more starting experience than Beck.
