Jay Gruden: Redskins considered working out Colin Kaepernick but decided against it

Grant SmithDec 06, 2018

Sanchez hasn't taken an National Football League regular season snap since January 1, 2017 - the same day Colin Kaepernick made his last appearance in an National Football League uniform.

"He's been talked about and discussed", Gruden said of Kaepernick.

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.

"There's not a lot of time to get a brand-new quarterback and a system installed and taught in a couple of days", Gruden told reporters Tuesday. McCoy had replaced Alex Smith as the starting quarterback after Smith broke his right leg last month.

Mark Sanchez, who was signed two weeks ago - when Smith was lost for 2018, takes over as Washington's QB.

Against the Eagles, the 32-year-old Sanchez compiled a passer rating of 53.7, going 13 for 21 for only 100 yards with one interception and one fumble that he managed to recover.

"In order to utilize someone like Colin Kaepernick's skill set, you're talking about a whole new group of formations and run concepts", Gruden said. Here's a look at the type of offense we can expect to see from the Redskins with Sanchez at quarterback. The 31-year-old hasn't even had a work out with a team this season, while other QBs like T.J. Yates, E.J. Manuel and Mark Sanchez have gotten calls.
