Redskins release John BeckApr 28, 2012 - 11:37 PM Ashburn, VA (Sports Network) - The Washington Redskins have released quarterback John Beck, who became expendable when the club elected to select Kirk Cousins in the fourth round of the NFL Draft.
Washington had already selected Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick of the draft on Thursday. Cousins, who set numerous passing records at Michigan State, was then chosen with the 102nd overall pick.
Beck started three games, all losses, for the Redskins in 2011 and appeared in one other contest. He completed 80-of-132 passes for 858 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions.
The five-year veteran from BYU spent two seasons in Miami, starting four games in his rookie year of 2007, and was a backup in Baltimore in 2009 before joining the Redskins the following year.
