Jay Gruden Says Redskins Considered Colin Kaepernick

Jay Gruden Says Redskins Considered Colin Kaepernick

The Redskins entered the season with two quarterbacks, and when Smith went down, they signed Mark Sanchez to be Colt McCoy's backup. Simple algebra tells us that Jay Gruden's scheme would be very similar to Harbaugh's, in that case, meaning that Kaepernick (who played under Harbaugh) would indeed be familiar with the Washington offense. "But we will probably go a different direction".

Kaepernick has filed a collusion suit against the National Football League, arguing that owners have colluded to keep him off any National Football League roster since he hit free agency in 2017. McCoy hasn't been placed on injured reserve yet, and Gruden went as far as to say that he wouldn't, but with only four games left, the prospects of McCoy's 2018 Cinderella story playing out are not promising. But it's hard to deny that based on his resume alone, he would have been a better choice than either Mark Sanchez, who was called in to be the back-up for QB Colt McCoy, or Josh Johnson, who was signed to be Sanchez's back-up after McCoy broke his fibula. The Redskins are bringing in two free agent quarterbacks for a workout late Tuesday afternoon, and will compare them to the group that worked out after Alex Smith suffered a season-ending leg injury November 18 against the Texans.

"It's just going to be a matter of which way do we want to go?" Not that Colin can't do some of the things we've talked about, but we want someone with a little more familiarity. He said if it had been Week 1 of the season, Kaepernick would have been a better possibility of joining the team.

The custom-painted unit incorporates the colors of the Air Force One used during Bush's years as president, from 1989 to 1992. Jim McGrath, spokesman for the Bush family, tweeted out a photo on Sunday night, captioning it "mission complete".

Gruden said the fear with Kaepernick is that the team would have to "teach a whole new offense with a lot of zone-reads".

We can all say with certainty that Sanchez did not run into the posterior of his offensive lineman with that answer. Sanchez being with [offensive coordinator Matt] Cavanaugh helped out a lot.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman believes teams are now more willing to fumble away their playoff chances rather than sign free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
