If he's your answer to the starting QB role, it's a chickenshit move. But if he's an acquisition in addition to your high-value QBOTF and a potentially top-shelf fallback, I think that's just smart football.
People wanna look and point at the Skins this year with Cousins and RGIII, but thats really not the way to go IMO.
Although now they are looking pretty good with RGIII going down I guess.
