The Redskins reached a four-year deal with draft pick Colt Brennan on Monday, leaving them with only two unsigned second-round selections six days before their first training camp practice.

2008 Combine: Colt Brennan

Highlights from Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan's performance at the 2008 NFL combine.

Brennan, the third pick of the sixth round, is scheduled to make around $1.8 million over the four years of the contract, but the good news for Brennan and the team is the positive medical report he received. Last week, Brennan was cleared to practice and participate in camp, where he has a very good chance of becoming the No. 3 quarterback on the roster behind Jason Campbell and Todd Collins.

The former Hawaii quarterback had minor hip surgery to repair the labrum on April 8. Though some thought he might have to start camp on the physically unable to perform list, Brennan made a quick recovery. Through weight lifting, he is 220 pounds.

Tight end Fred Davis and wide receiver Devin Thomas are the Redskins' only unsigned draft choices.
