WASHINGTON, D.C. (KHNL) - It's been quite the summer for former Warrior quarterback Colt Brennan. He spent a couple weeks back in the Island for a little R&R, but now he's back on the mainland and battling for the backup position on the Washington Redskins.

The 2nd year quarterback is listed as the third string QB right now, but he's competing with 15-year veteran Todd Collins for the backup role.

The position is listed as one of the big battles when camp opened Thursday, and getting his name penciled in that spot is all Colt is focusing on.

"It's a big deal for me because obviously I want to prove myself, I want to be in this league for a long time and this is kind of my first step towards that," said Brennan.

"Where do you feel that you are in terms of your status as a pro?" asked a reporter.

"Well, right now I would say that the first thing is the rhythm in my drop, my footwork. I mean when you throw the ball you just gotta get from point A to point B and people have talked about my release and what not, but I don't think I have a problem getting the ball from A to B, i'm just trying to progress and get better at the knowledge of the game," responded Brennan.

Washington's first preseason game is on Thursday August 13th against the Baltimore Ravens.
