Let me preface this by saying as a person, I like John Beck. Nice down to earth kid. As an NFL QB? Completely different story. We all know the story, so there is no reason to rehash it here. After Beck left the Phins he hooked back up with draft pal, Cam Cameron in Baltimore but after a one year stint, Beck got the old heave-ho and signed with the Washington Redskins. O.k. a lot of players bounce around the league. But today, John Beck has to be grinning from ear to ear after the Washington Redskins elected to sign the traveling QB to a 2 year extension through the 2010 season.
The contract? An amazing 2.25 million dollars. Yes, I said million. An average of 1.15 a year or there abouts.
Sorry, but I don’t care if John Beck looked like the second coming this pre-season, the guy has shown nothing to warrant a multi-million dollar deal. But hey, I like the kid and I don’t like Washington so who cares if Dan Snyder just wasted more dough. I’m sure that he is more interested in the dough he wasted on Albert Haynesworth.
