Our sources indicate that the Redskins, as has been their trademark under Daniel Snyder, will be bold in searching for their next quarterback. Club officials like Rex Grossman — as a backup — but feel they can find their next starting quarterback through the draft or via free agency or trade. The pie-in-the-sky wishes for someone like Peyton Manning, for instance, might be a long shot. Manning is a control freak, as is head coach Mike Shanahan, and the offensive scheme the Redskins run might not be Manning's first choice. Besides, the Colts might still want him back. The draft possibilities took a hit when USC's Matt Barkley returned to school, and they likely would have to make a big offer to move up into the Andrew Luck-Robert Griffin territory. Drew Brees isn't going anywhere, and Jason Campbell isn't coming back, so the options might be limited. One name to keep in mind: Green Bay's Matt Flynn, who seems almost certain to seek a starting chance elsewhere.
