Collins Officially Named the Skins Backup QB for 2009

The Washington Post reports that once again Todd Collins will serve as the backup for the Skins for the 2009 season:

For the fourth consecutive season, Todd Collins will be the Redskins’ backup quarterback, and Colt Brennan is in a battle with rookie Chase Daniel for the No. 3 job, Coach Jim Zorn said today after practice at Redskins Park. When camp began, Brennan supposedly was competing with Collins for the right to be starter Jason Campbell’s primary backup. But Collins, who will be in his 15th season, solidified his standing when he went 8 for 11 with 70 yards in a preseason-opening loss to the Baltimore Ravens. “We saw that Todd was not willing to kind of bow down and give up his No. 2 spot,” Zorn said. “So the competition is for the No. 3 spot, and Chase is making a statement about that.”
