Darryl Clark Joins The Qb Carousel [POLL]


The Jason Campbell era is no more, but there is a new quarterback in town.

Penn State signal-caller Darryl Clark tells the Daily Collegian that he has signed with the ‘Skins as an undrafted free agent.

Also on the depth chart are Donovan McNabbRex GrossmanColt Brennan, and Richard Bartel.  Campbell was shipped to the Raiders on Saturday.

This summer will prove to have an interesting storyline with the 5 quarterbacks. I do not expect this team to go with more than 3, but who is on the roster on opening day will be up for debate.

Rex Grossman-Was brought in, mainly because he is a system guy, I think.  He played behind Matt Schaub in Houston, but knows Kyle Shanahan’s playbook. I think he has the best shot at being the back up guy.  He is not the most coveted quarterback, but did quarterback a team into the Super Bowl (Bears in 2006). He is also an experience starter, and despite his personal achievements, or lack thereof, this gives him a head up over anyone else.

Colt Brennan-Only in his third season, he is now the longest tenured Redskin quarterback on the roster. He is a fan favorite, and local folk hero.  However, that will not do him much as he needs to work on his mechanics.  Last pre-season, he was out played for the most part by Chase Daniels. Brennan must win out the back up role, without a doubt over Grossman in order to stay in town. He is getting too old to remain a project third quarterback.

Richard Bartel- Signed on as a practice squad player, he will have his work cut out for him.  Should Brennan not win the back up role, I think Bartel may squeeze his way into that third spot for the Sunday night contest versus Dallas.
