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.

College Football Lacks Concussion Policy, Could Lead to Tragedy

Oct 1 2014 1:08pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The video is tough to watch. Shane Morris staggers after taking a direct hit to his helmet. He collapses, reaching for his teammate to keep him upright. Immediately, his teammates begin waving to the sidelines. Instead of an athletic trainer, Morris, a QB for Michigan, is met by Brady Hoke, the head coach.  Morris was sent back into the game moments later, despite appearing woozy and blinking slowly. Hoke was close enough to notice this, and he sent Morris back out anyway. Hoke ...

Jay Gruden says Washington's loss wasn't on Kirk Cousins

Sep 26 2014 7:54am CDT | Source: SBNation

Despite a horrific performance from Kirk Cousins, the first-year head coach is laying blame on the entire team. Washington was humiliated by the New York Giants at FedEx Field on Thursday Night Football, beaten 45-14 to drop their record to 1-3. Perhaps the most embarrassing performance goes to Kirk Cousins, who threw four interceptions and lost a fumble in defeat. After the game, head coach Jay Gruden refused to lay blam ...
