Jay Gruden Says Redskins Considered Colin Kaepernick

It's Week 14 now, and the Washington Redskins have one quarterback able to play. Gruden said. "Do we want to go with a guy that's familiar with my terminology who we worked out last week. or go with a guy and teach, basically, a whole new kind of offense with new offensive linemen with a lot of the zone reads and all that stuff". His camp has been actively pursuing a collusion suit against the NFL owners, alleging that Kaepernick has had work opportunities closed off to him, due to his activism on the national stage.

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

Washington's starter Alex Smith is out for the season with a compound fracture in his leg. "Not a lot of time to really get a brand new quarterback, a new system installed and taught in a couple days of practice". Like at first it was, "Colin Kaepernick's stats weren't good enough" or 'he stopped playing at a high level, ' and then you see some of the quarterbacks that they picked up and you're like, 'Well, you know, if you're picking up Mark Sanchez, he's has some up and down years.' Colt McCoy's the same way. "When you're talking about a backup quarterback this late in the game you want someone with a similar skill set to the quarterback you have. That's why we went with Sanchez".


"This is a tough blow", Gruden said. Sanchez is 37-35 over the course of his eight-year career with 86 touchdowns and 87 interceptions.

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. That group included Kellen Clemens, T.J. Yates, EJ Manuel and Josh Johnson. The Redskins are 6-6 and have lost four of their past five games. Jonathan Cooper tore a biceps tendon and needs season-ending surgery; Tony Bergstrom will miss at least two games with a high ankle sprain.
