Former Washington Redskins General Manager Charlie Casserly joined the Junkies on Monday and was positive about Rex Grossman re-signing with the Redskins.

“To me you want to have a veteran quarterback there, who understands and knows the system that Griffin can look to him and model himself after as far as work habits and understanding the system.” Casserly said.  “You don’t want the pressure of playing the guy on opening day.”

Casserly also mentioned that Rex brings more to the team than John Beck. “You have John Beck, I’m not sure anybody in your office or me have any in faith or belief John Beck is the answer at quarterback. I think Grossman’s a better quarterback than Beck.”

“So from a simplistic point of view, if you want a veteran, let’s sign Grossman back to a one-year-contract cause he’s better than Beck.” Casserly said. “We all know where we’re going to end up. Griffin is going to start at some point, but we don’t want to have the pressure of having him start from day one.”
