Kellen Clemens to Sign With Washington Redskins

Kellen Clemens will sign with the Redskins.

Former Jets backup QB Kellen Clemens, almost traded and later almost released last year, agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday with the Redskins, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.


Clemens was a major disappointment for the Jets. At one point, he was supposed to be the man of the future. He struggled as a starter in 2007 and never showed much improvement in limited work after that. He still looks like a rookie. With all of the quarterbacks on the roster, it seemed like his time here was up. The Jets had made moves for Brett Favre, Mark Sanchez, and Mark Brunell the past few years to knock Kellen down the depth chart. Now Greg McElroy finally knocked him off.

I am not the biggest fan of Mike Shanahan as a head coach, but I think this is a good spot for him. If there is one thing Shanahan does well, it is get quarterbacks to play really well. He got big seasons in Denver out of mediocre guys like Brian Griese, Jake Plummer, and Jay Cutler.

I guess the score is 1-1. The Jets kept Santonio Holmes from going to Washington, but they lost Clemens. It doesn't feel like an even split, though.
