WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Less than a week after re-signing Rex Grossman, the Washington Redskins are planning to visit with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Johnson.

The 25-year-old University of San Diego Prospect will meet with the team on Wednesday according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network.

Johnson has also drawn interest from the San Francisco 49ers and head coach Jim Harbaugh. That interest is expected to continue despite the fact the team re-signed Alex Smith on Tuesday.

In Washington, Johnson may compete with Grossman for the backup role if Robert Griffin III is the Redskins starter in Week 1.

Johnson was a four-time I-AA All-American in college and a Walter Payton Award finalist in 2007.

In four seasons with the Buccaneers, the Oakland native appeared in 26 games with five starts, completing 96 of 177 passing attempts for 1,042 yards, five touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He has a career passer rating of 57.7.

Johnson is also the cousin of Seattle Seahawks running back, and noted Skittles fan, Marshawn Lynch.
