05:05 PM ET 06.26 | The general consensus among Redskins fans and the media covering the team is that the Redskins will go into the season carrying three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. It appears that Robert Griffin III will be ready to be the starter barring a setback to his rehab. Kirk Cousins is the No. 2. And Rex Grossman is the third string guy although there is a sliver of hope that Pat White will be able to put on a show in the preseason and steal that spot. So that is the way it will line up when the final cuts are made on Aug. 31. Unless it doesn???t. Mike Shanahan does not always carry three QB???s on the roster. He didn???t for most of the time he was in Denver. With the Redskins in 2011 he went with just Grossman and John Beck for 16 games. If possible, Shanahan would like to use that 53rd roster spot on something other than a player who is very unlikely to play. It looks like the Redskins may be making some plans for that spot. The night that the Redskins drafted Jordan Reed in the third round Shanahan talked about the advantages of carrying four tight ends on the roster. They carried three all of last year.

Rex Grossman [b]SHOULD[/i] be released if RG3 is healthy... or unhealthy... or picking his nose.

Rex holding a roster spot at this point in his career is a waste of cap space.

I'm sure the name Grossman is written above the locker in dry erase marker, making an easy erasing when the time comes.

LMAO................it's coming.

Grossman. What a joke.

I wonder if Rex can catch. I saw someone named B.Kraft just posted an opening for a TE on Craig's List

RG3 seems the type that's going to get hurt...a lot. Cousins looked real good back there, so dump Rex.

I wouldn't answer that ad, it sounds like prison lingo for something else.

You and I may not, but Rex would probably toss the clipboard to the wrong team. Might as well try a shot at something else (no pun intended).

Grossman still plays?

His career standing is somewhere between Tebow and Jamarcus Russell.

But when it's all sad and done Grossman will have a more accomplished career than Tebow and JaMarcus combined.

Granted JaMarcus likely counts for negative points.
