Colt McCoy signs with the Redskins

Posted April 3rd, 2014


RGIII and Colt McCoy on the same team? It appears so as the Redskins have signed the former Texas quarterback to serve as a possible third-string quarterback behind Robert Griffin III of Baylor and Kirk Cousins.

Here is the following dispatch from the Associated Press…

ASHBURN, Va. — The Washington Redskins have signed quarterback Colt McCoy.


McCoy signed his contract Thursday, giving the Redskins a new potential No. 3 quarterback to replace Rex Grossman. Grossman is a free agent after playing behind Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins the last two seasons.

McCoy could also complete for the No. 2 spot if the Redskins decide to trade Cousins.

McCoy was a third-round draft pick in 2010 by the Cleveland Browns. He started 21 games his first two seasons but has since been a backup. He played last year with San Francisco, appearing in four games and throwing one pass.
