Reskins re-sign John Beck

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins have signed quarterback John Beck to three-year contract worth $3.35 million.

The deal is essentially a two-year extension and puts Beck under contract through the 2012 season. More importantly, it appears to solidify his spot on the roster as the third-string quarterback. He had been competing with Richard Bartel for the No. 3 spot behind Donovan McNabb and Rex Grossman.

Beck was acquired Aug. 2 in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens.

Beck was with the Ravens last year and previously sent two seasons with the Miami Dolphins, who drafted him in the second round out of BYU in 2007. He hasn't played in the regular season since his rookie year, when he appeared in five games.
