Ravens teammates will be happy to know Troy Smith will stick in Baltimore.
The popular third-string quarterback essentially won a position battle with John Beck on Monday when the Ravens decided to deal Beck to the Redskins, as first reported by Dick Harmon of the Deseret News.
The Ravens have since confirmed that Beck was dumped for cornerback Doug Dutch.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan recently said Rex Grossman was in a battle to be the team’s backup quarterback, and this trade indicates they may not love what they’ve seen from Sexy Rexy to this point.
Beck couldn’t make good with a second chance under Cam Cameron, which doesn’t speak well for the rest of his career.
