In need of a quarterback, the Redskins have agreed to a one-year contract with Kellen Clemens, who has spent his previous five professional seasons with the Jets. The news was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Clemens, who has started only one game over the past three seasons, is expected to compete for a backup job behind Washington starter John Beck. According to reports, the Redskins will be trading last year's starting quarterback, Donovan McNabb, to the Vikings in exchange for draft choices.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Redskins agreed to a deal with WR Donté Stallworth in another move to bolster their offense.

The way we see it

Sources say the Redskins still plan to bring back Rex Grossman as a backup, so we'll have to see if this is how it works out. Clemens likely would be the No. 3 QB, but he could be cut in camp if a younger option emerges. The Redskins still plan to go forward firmly with Beck and in no way envision Clemens competing for the starting job in camp.
