That could prove to be true in the long run, but for now Beck looks like a long shot to even make the team. The No. 3 slot is slated to go to undrafted former University of Houston product Case Keenum.
"Keenum would have to blow up to not claim the No. 3 job, but it's a plus to have the journeyman Beck prodding from behind," Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle writes.
The NFL is a rough business. One year, you are the favorite to be a starting quarterback under a noted quarterback guru in Washington. The next year you aren't expected to beat out an undrafted free agent for a roster spot.
