Not that competition at a critical position is always a bad thing, but there's a much better sense of assurance when you head into training camp with an established depth chart at quarterback. And for the Washington Redskins—in otherwise atypical fashion—their situation at quarterback doesn't posses much drama heading into 2014.
After finishing a magical 2012 season with a torn ACL, Robert Griffin III has yet to look the same as he did when he took Washington by storm as a rookie. As Griffin looks to get his career back on the fast track, new head coach Jay Gruden will focus on making Griffin a legitimate threat from the pocket.
Backing up Griffin is Kirk Cousins, who saw regular-season action late last year as the Redskins decided to rest Griffin and give their other guys a run. Despite offseason chatter about the possibility of trading Cousins, general manager Bruce Allen says he never came close to dealing the former 2012 fourth-round draft pick, according to Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com.
And rounding out the position is Colt McCoy, who the Redskins signed in early April to be the team's No. 3. McCoy comes to Washington after spending his first three years with Cleveland and last season as the backup in San Francisco.
Let's look a bit further into each quarterback heading into next season.
