The Washington Redskins signed former Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colt McCoy on April 3.

The Washington Redskins signed former Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colt McCoy on April 3. 

Andrew Walker of the Redskins' official website wrote,"The Washington Redskins announced today they have signed unrestricted free agent quarterback Colt McCoy. Terms of the deal were not disclosed." 

Rich Tandler of CSN Washington weighs in on the McCoy acquisition: 

"One thing is that the signing of Colt McCoy would appear to be the end of the line for Rex Grossman, at least in a Redskins uniform. In four years in Washington, Grossman started 16 games but he has not taken a snap in the last two years as he has been the third QB behind Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. He is currently a free agent. 

"While the door isn't completely closed to a Grossman return until he signs elsewhere, he probably doesn't want to be in a situation where he is competing with McCoy for a spot on the off chance that Jay Gruden decides to go with three quarterbacks on the roster. 

"In any case, many are wondering if the acquisition of McCoy is a precursor to the team trading away Cousins. Dealing Cousins has been talked about almost since the team drafted him in the fourth round of the same draft they took Griffin second overall. 

"The presence of McCoy might make that easier should another team come up with an offer the Redskins can't refuse." 

As for Grossman, The Washington Times' Zac Boyer says he is being linked to McCoy's old team, the Cleveland Browns

"Rex Grossman, the third quarterback the last two seasons, is an unrestricted free agent. He has been linked to the Browns and their offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan, who joined the team in January after being fired after four seasons along with his father, Mike Shanahan, and several other assistant coaches in December." 

McCoy was drafted by the Browns in 2010. He spent parts of his first two years in the league as Cleveland's starting quarterback, throwing for 20 touchdowns and 20 interceptions during that span. 

He eventually became Brandon Weeden's backup in 2012 and was traded to the 49ers the next season to play that same role behind Colin Kaepernick, per Boyer. 

McCoy made a name for himself with the Texas Longhorns during his college days from 2006-09. Walker notes McCoy set a record for most career wins (45) by a starting quarterback in NCAA history at one point. 

More specifically, Walker says,"McCoy was the only quarterback in history to win at least 10 or more games in each of his four collegiate seasons." McCoy was twice named a Heisman Trophy award finalist and was the Big 12 Player of the Year in his senior season. 

For his four-year NFL career, McCoy has amassed 4,401 passing yards and 21 touchdowns for a passer rating of 74.9, according to ESPN stats.

Robert Griffin III is Starting Against Minnesota, According to a Report

Oct 29 2014 4:36pm CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Robert Griffin III is back! According to a report from NBC’s Dianna Russini, RGIII  will return to the field for Washington Sunday in Minnesota. Griffin, the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL draft, injured his ankle in week two against Jacksonville, and hasn’t been active for a game since. It seems like a risky move to bring back RGIII so quickly – especially given that the Redskins have a bye the following week – after Colt McCoy played so well Mond ...

Robert Griffin III to start against Vikings, per report

Washington will have the 2013 Rookie of the Year for Week 9. When Washington takes on the Minnesota Vikings this weekend, they'll do so with Robert Griffin III under center, per a report by NBC's Dianna Marie Russini. Griffin's return has been the subject of considerable conjecture and debate since a dislocated left ankle sidelined him in Week 2. For a time, Kirk Cousins outperformed the 2013 Rookie of the Year, leading to speculation that head coach Jay Gru ...

An ode to a puppy, and a player, named Champ

Oct 29 2014 8:04am CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

There’s no great story behind it. When I decided to call my dog Champ Bailey it was because I liked the name. It was late 2003, more than 150 months ago, but looking back it doesn’t feel a day more than 145. Bailey- the perennial pro-bowl cornerback, not the canine- was a star on the Washington Redskins, my adopted NFL team. Though I was still in the early days of regularly following the Goliath football league (the CFL had been my bag until then) I, ...
