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.

How the Arizona Cardinals Defense Turned Cowboys Stars into Afterthoughts

Nov 3 2014 5:18pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

The defensive clamp placed on the Dallas Cowboys Sunday by the Arizona Cardinals during a 28-17 win will come with an asterisk for most. An asterisk named Brandon Weeden. Regardless of who was under center, we still saw a smothering performance from the Cardinals secondary. It was able to key on wide receiver Dez Bryant while the front seven repeatedly stuffed running back DeMarco Murray. A nearly complete shutdown re ...

Fantasy football stats: The sleepers of Week 9

Nov 3 2014 8:10am CST | Source: SBNation

What is a sleeper, exactly? When we're making predictions, a sleeper is someone who hasn't really produced yet, who we expect to rise in prominence in the games or weeks to come. There are any number of reasons why this might be the case -- a role could change, or a guy could just be getting better, or a guy in front of him could get hurt. But these are more reactive sleeper calls. Which means ...
