Rex Grossman QB CLE Feb 14 '78
Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed that Rex Grossman will have to hold off Kirk Cousins to be the Redskins' backup quarterback coming out of training camp.
Grossman has a significant leg up on Cousins because of his knowledge of the offense and close friendship with OC Kyle Shanahan. The Skins also won't want to enter the season with two rookie quarterbacks. Should Robert Griffin III be injured or struggle out of the chute, Grossman would get the nod over Cousins.
