Redskins Welcome Back Jeff George!

New, comments


You can put the quarterback speculation to rest...

Last night, Dan Snyder secretly met with and signed former Washington starting quarterback Jeff George to a two-year contract estimated to be worth $8.75 million, plus incentives.  According to early reports, this includes $2.5 million in signing bonuses and a total of $3.75 million in guaranteed money.  This contract is contingent on George passing a team physical.

We at HogsHaven couldn't be any happier about this move.  George is a self-avowed expert of the West Coast offense, making him is a great fit for the Redskins' finesse running and dump pass style of play, and the price couldn't be any better (what a steal!).  Kudos to Snyder for finally addressing this unspoken gap in our roster over the past couple of seasons at third-string quarterback.  In our view, he couldn't have found a better veteran to fill this role.  Adding to his 12-years of NFL experience is his fresh, injury-free body, having not thrown a pass since the 2000-2001 season.

Anwaan Randle-El will continue in his role as the Redskins' 4th string emergency quarterback.
