Washington Redskins Pass on Colin Kaepernick

Washington Redskins Pass on Colin Kaepernick

Redskins coach Jay Gruden recently said that they chose to pass over Kaepernick because there was no time to get a new QB caught up on their system, or to install both a new QB and a new system.

The Washington Post reported the team worked out two quarterbacks Tuesday, the day after McCoy was injured in his second start after Alex Smith suffered a broken leg that ended his season.

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.

"There's some anticipation issues we're going through right now and that's to be expected, but I think come Sunday we'll have a pretty good grasp", Gruden said.

"There's not a lot of time to get a brand-new quarterback and system installed in a couple of days", he said. "He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go a different direction".

The Redskins have lost their two senior quarterbacks to injury.

Gruden insisted it was purely a sporting decision, adding: "Just football, strictly football".

O'Connell did coach in San Francisco for one season when Kaepernick played for the 49ers. He said if it had been Week 1 of the season, Kaepernick would have been a better possibility of joining the team.

Johnson, who besides the Bucs and Bengals has spent time with the Browns, 49ers, Colts, Bills, Giants and Texans, was the first player selected last week in the Alliance of American Football's inaugural quarterback draft.

Last week the goal was to get Colt McCoy ready for Monday Night Football in Philadelphia with a playoff spot on the line. He went 13/21 for 100 yards and an interception and was largely ineffective in the 28-13 loss to the Eagles. The Redskins are 6-6 and have lost four of their past five games. His collusion grievance, as well as his position on kneeling during the anthem to protest social injustice, is going to continue to keep him from getting a job in the NFL.
