Description: The Redskins have released quarterback John Beck.
Insight: This move allows the Redskins to keep the QB trio of Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins (drafted in the fourth round on Saturday) and Rex Grossman. Beck was ineffective in his four starts last season (all losses) so if the 30-year-old catches on elsewhere in 2012, it will almost certainly be as a backup.

Description: Exit Rex Grossman; Enter John Beck. The Washington Redskins announced Wednesday that John Beck will start under center in Week 7 ahead of last week's starter Rex Grossman. SOURCE: WASHINGTON POST
Insight: Not a major surprise, but also not a move that's going to make the Redskins any better. Beck has a decent arm, but he doesn't bring anything to the table fantasy-wise, so this move doesn't impact our industry nearly as much as some of the other recent NFL QB changes/moves.

Insight: "When (Beck) came out in 2007 ... he was by far my No. 1 guy." Shanahan would be better off wining and dining Donovan McNabb and trying to smooth things over with him rather than going with Beck. Beck hasn't thrown a pass since his rookie season with the Dolphins back in 2007. But with McNabb on the outs and Rex Grossman set to hit free agency, Beck is the only player left right now.

Description: The Ravens have traded QB John Beck to the Redskins for DB Doug Dutch. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: The trade tells us that Rex Grossman may not be doing all that well as the backup to Donovan McNabb. And given his inconsistent career, it wouldn't surprise us in the least. It looks like Troy Smith now has sole possession of the No. 3 spot behind Joe Flacco and Marc Bulger. Dutch could be a desperation move for a team with a very decimated secondary.

Description: Aaron Wilson of National Football Post reports, via Twitter, that the Redskins have acquired Beck from the Ravens.
Insight: Beck could become a contender to be Donovan McNabb's backup in Washington. (Rapid Draft.com)

Description: John Beck and Troy Smith are expected to compete for the Ravens' backup quarterback job.
Insight: Beck is just not talented enough to play second fiddle in this offense. Expect Smith to win the job handily. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Ravens re-signed restricted free agent QB John Beck to a one-year, $1.101 million contract.
Insight: It would take a miracle for Beck to have any fantasy value at this point. (SportsBuff.com)
