Rex didn't play last year, and he's #3 at best.

For what it's worth, every guy in the poll was a free agent when the original post was made. They were also generally considered the best free agent QBs available. Rex is one of the least talented among them but he has more value for us than the other guys.

I guess the question now is, come opening day, which QBs will be active?

I'll take it one step further ....
OPENING DAY - my guess is that RG3 will be starting at QB, Kirk Cousins will be the #2 QB and Rex Grossman will be #3 QB and inactive for the game
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

RG3 will benefit from having a full off season to prepare and a better 'fit' at both HC and OC

I meant #2 behind KC (if RGIII had been out). He's been with the team long enough and helped the rookies come along nicely --- that's why I said he earned it. But since RGIII appears to be back, he'll take on the #3/non-active slot he had last year.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.
