Texans Sign Former Redskins QB John Beck
John Beck was dumped by the Redskins after Washington decided to draft Kirk Cousins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft (along with Robert Griffin III in the first round). But he didn't last long as a free agent, and he was reportedly signed by the Texans on Wednesday. That's according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, who correctly points out that Beck makes sense in Houston given his familiarity with the system that Gary Kubiak runs. Kubiak is a Mike Shanahan protégé and recently employed Kyle Shanahan as his offensive coordinator. Beck's not the type of guy you want starting for your team (see: the 2011 Washington Redskins), but he's potentially a capable backup to the backup in Houston.
