Why the Redskins discussed and rejected Colin Kaepernick

McCoy expected to miss rest of season

Philadelphia Eagles' Doug Pederson, left, and Washington Redskins' Jay Gruden meet after an NFL football game, Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, in Philadelphia.

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.

"He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go in a different direction".

"Most of the time when you get down to third quarterbacks, you're going to struggle quite a bit anyway", Gruden said.

Of course. the 'Skins lost Alex Smith to a gruesome injury back on November 18 - but passed on signing Kaepernick the following week in favor of adding Mark Sanchez. Backup Colt McCoy suffered a broken right fibula on Monday night, though he has not been ruled out for the season.

"In order to utilize someone like Colin Kaepernick's skill set, you're talking about a whole new group of formations and run concepts", Gruden said.

"This is a tough blow", Gruden said. "That's why we went with Sanchez".

Now, the Redskins are once again on the market for a quarterback, needing someone to come in and backup Sanchez in case he too goes down.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Washington worked out E.J. Manuel, T.J. Yates and Mark Sanchez, before opting to move forward with Sanchez. Jonathan Cooper tore a biceps tendon and needs season-ending surgery; Tony Bergstrom will miss at least two games with a high ankle sprain.
