Texans Ink QB John Beck

Quarterback John Beck has a new football home, as reports say the 30-year-old former Redskin is joining the Texans.

The free agent started three games for the Redskins last season, going 80-for-132 in pass attempts for 858 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions before he was replaced by Rex Grossman.

The Redskins used the No. 2 overall pick on quarterback Robert Griffin and added quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round, prompting the club to release Beck.

Originally selected out of BYU in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, the 30-year-old Beck has completed 140-of-239 pass attempts for 1,417 yards with three touchdowns and seven interceptions during his nine-game career.

Beck already has an understanding of Gary Kubiak’s offense and will compete with 2011 fifth round pick T.J. Yates for the No. 2 job behind Matt Schaub.
