A team coming off of a playoff season is unlikely to have a plethora of position battles, but some of the competition for back-up jobs can get interesting.
Presuming that Matt Schaub's surgically repaired foot allows him to open the season as the starter and presuming that T. J. Yates would have to have a miserable training camp to lose the back-up job, only one quarterback job remains open on the roster: the third spot behind Schaub and Yates. That competition is between undrafted rookie Case Keenum and veteran John Beck.
Beck had been with the Redskins, where Mike and Kyle Shanahan employ essentially the same offense used by Gary Kubiak. So a few days after Washington released Beck in April, he became a Texan.
"I spent the last couple of years watching a lot of Houston tape," said Beck. "I'm excited to be a part of it. I'm especially excited to see Matt when he gets back in training camp because I've watched him on tape and now I'll get a chance to watch him at practice."
