Multiple reports have said the Washington Redskins are prepared to go with John Beck as their starting quarterback for the upcoming season. Yes, Beck is the same guy who was drafted in the second round by the Dolphins and released shortly thereafter.
If you’re not too familiar with him, don’t worry — you’re not alone.
According to The Washington Post, Beck showed up to Redskins Park to be the first player at the facility once the lockout ended and was turned away. But that’s not the best part. Beck was not only turned away because players can’t report until Tuesday, but also because the security guard didn’t know who he was.
“I’m OK with that,” Beck said of not being recognized. “I haven’t done anything yet.”
We’ve heard of Tim Lincecum being turned away by security guards but that was from opposing teams and because he looks 12 years old. Beck plays for the Redskins where the city absolutely loves their football team. That just shows how unknown he is. It doesn’t mean he can’t become the team’s starting quarterback, it just shows us he has a long way to go.
