With all the rumours with Jay Cutler from the Broncos finally being put to rest when he went to the Bears, in comes more information about backup free agent Steelers QB Byron Leftwich. He did workout at Redskin Park on Friday and has been told that he will NOT be competing for the starting QB with Jason Campbell, but no official offer has been given. Last year Leftwich played in 5 games, completed 21-of-36 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns. I saw a few of those games and liked what I saw. This guy is tough.
I don't know where they're going to get the $ to sign him, but with him as a backup and Colt Brennan as third string, I'm liking where this could go.

Written by Mercedes Green
I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
