Former Redskins great Joe Theismann says the team is set at quarterback:
If you were worried the Redskins might chase a starting quarterback in free agency, fret not, Theisman said. The lack of a traditional offseason means a new quarterback probably won't have time to report to training camp and master the new offense before Week 1.
"I think the Redskins are pretty much set at the quarterback position... They'll probably bring in someone, possibly a rookie, to be able to give you another arm in the limited amount of camp," he said.
That sounds right to me. I don't see how a new quarterback can get up to speed on the offense in time to be ready for the start of the season. The NFL lockout was already on during the Draft so if the Redskins planned to get a new starting quarterback this offseason they should have taken Blaine Gabbert when he fell to them in the first round. Having pointedly refused to take a quarterback at any time during the draft and facing the very real possibility - now a certainty - of a very short or non-existent free agency period, it would appear Head Coach Mike Shanahan never really intended to make a splash at quarterback this year.
