LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA – The Washington Redskins announced today that they acquired quarterback John Beck from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for cornerback Doug Dutch.

Beck (6-2, 215) served as a backup in Baltimore last season following two years in Miami. The Dolphins drafted the former BYU standout in the second round (No. 40 overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft. Beck appeared in five games as a rookie, with four starts, accounting for all of his regular season NFL action to date. In those contests, Beck completed 60-of-107 passes for 559 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. He also rushed nine times for 12 yards and a touchdown.

Beck was a four-year letterman and a three-year starter at BYU, where he finished his collegiate career with 885 completions on 1,418 attempts (62.4 percent) for 11,021 yards, 79 touchdowns and 34 interceptions.

Beck was born Aug. 21, 1981, and attended Mountain View High School in Mesa, Ariz.

Dutch spent the final seven weeks of the 2009 season on the Redskins’ practice squad.

The cult had a good run, but they'll need a miracle to stick around now.

It's a crowded spot now with McNabb, Grossman, Bartel, Colt, and now Beck. Preseason playing time will be precious for guys trying to stick or to make an impression for other teams.

Typical Bruce Allen move, stocking up the back end of the roster, creating more competition. Don't like what they see thus far in camp, move to make it better. I like it, though it's tough to know just how much so without knowing what was given up.
