Colt Brennan has been a fan favorite since he was drafted in 2008 with members of the fan-club going by the moniker “Cult of Colt.” He’s had his ups and downs since then (pre-season game, hip surgery, Grossman signing), but his following lives on. Where there’s intense Redskin talk, there’s talk of Brennan and what he can potentially do for the team.

Thanks to Jason Reid at The Washington Post, we have news.

New Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb is known for his “hell week” of intense workouts under the blazing Arizona sun. This year he’ll be taking receivers Devin Thomas, Malcolm Kelly and Santana Moss.

He’ll also be taking Brennan. The Cult of Colt continues.

McNabb and Brennan have been working together at Fischer Sports, studying the playbook and running similar drills and will now travel to Phoenix to presumably work on timing, conditioning and plays with the receivers.

Much was in question this off-season when the Redskins brought in Rex Grossman, who played under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Houston. Brennan’s chances of working his way up the depth chart became tougher, though working with the top receivers and starting quarterback in Phoenix could give Brennan a leg up on his competition.

I’ll do my best to keep you, the great readers of DMV Sports, up on the happenings of the Cult of Colt.

And again, thanks for reading.
