The Washington Redskins agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Rob Johnson on Sunday.
Johnson was signed as a backup to second-year player Patrick Ramsey, whom coach Steve Spurrier has said will be the starter for 2003.
Johnson served as Brad Johnson's backup in Tampa Bay last season, going 57-of-88 for 536 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in six games with two starts. He also has played with Jacksonville and Buffalo.
The Redskins have been the most active team in the NFL in the first three days of free agency, having added a total of seven players. Johnson and kicker John Hall join defensive linemen Regan Upshaw and Brandon Noble, and guards Randy Thomas and Dave Fiore.
Washington also acquired running back Trung Canidate in a trade with St. Louis on Friday.
