Redskins coach Jay Gruden says team 'discussed' Kaepernick

Fans clamoring for Redskins to sign Colin Kaepernick after latest injury Redskins coach Jay Gruden says team 'discussed' Kaepernick
Frederick Owens | 05 December, 2018, 06:47

The Washington Redskins are once again in the market for a backup quarterback after Colt McCoy suffered a fractured fibula just two weeks after starter Alex Smith broke his leg.

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.

Gruden said that they would need to build a specific package of plays and formations to take advantage of Kaepernick's athleticism, and that doing so this late in the season wasn't realistic.

The Washington Redskins have two quarterbacks with a broken leg and a third named Mark Sanchez, but are still not interested in signing Colin Kaepernick.

"Not that Colin can't do some of the things I'm talking about".

Down to Mark Sanchez on their quarterback depth chart, the Redskins signed veteran Josh Johnson on Tuesday to serve as the backup QB the remainder of the season.

"It's just going to be a matter of which way do we want to go?"

Gruden added the team wants to bring in someone who has some familiarity with the team's offense and Kaepernick's "skill set" was too different from what the Redskins want. "Now it goes from contingency plan to game plan", Sanchez said. "It's very hard. Whoever the backup is, they have to have skill sets similar to Mark, that he can fit into the plays we're going to run vs. the Giants". Sanchez being with [offensive coordinator Matt] Cavanaugh helped out a lot.

Gruden also said McCoy might return this season.
