Jay Gruden Says Redskins Considering Signing Colin Kaepernick, But Likely Won't

There's plenty of history to peruse when it comes to the rivalry between the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants. "Not that Colin can't do some of the things that I'm talking about, but somebody with a little bit of familiarity".

Redskins starter Alex Smith broke his leg two weeks ago. "Not a lot of time to really get a brand new quarterback, a new system installed and taught in a couple days of practice". The Redskins will opt, instead, to go back to Johnson, who worked out for the team at the time it signed Sanchez to serve as McCoy's backup. Backup Colt McCoy suffered a broken right fibula on Monday night, though he has not been ruled out for the season.

Added Gruden: "You want to have somebody with a similar skillset to the quarterback you have". Sanchez went 13-of-21 for 100 yards and an interception without much knowledge of the playbook. "That's why we went with Sanchez".

The Redskins could very well continue to roll with Sanchez, but the possible addition of Kaepernick would provide them with a quarterback that could make more of an impact on the field with his arm and legs. The Redskins are 6-6 and have lost four of their past five games.

It's been two years since Kaepernick last touched the field in an National Football League game and it seems unlikely he will sign before the end of this season. Jonathan Cooper tore a biceps tendon and needs season-ending surgery; Tony Bergstrom will miss at least two games with a high ankle sprain.
