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.

PITTSBURGH — James Harrison spent a decade as one of the NFL’s most feared players. What the five-time Pro Bowl linebacker fears now, however, is missing out on the childhood of his two young sons. Harrison announced his retirement on Saturday, saying the urge to squeeze in one more season no longer competes with the need to stay at home.

Blaine Gabbert remains the No. 2 QB for 49ers-Broncos

Aug 15 2014 5:45pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The 49ers backup quarterback position is in flux as far as fans are concerned. Maybe Jim Harbaugh has mostly made his decision at this point. The San Francisco 49ers head into their second preseason game with question marks surrounding the quarterback position. Not THAT quarterback position. While Colin Kaepernick is the starter for years to come, the backup spot is in a bit of a bind. Blaine Gabbert looked abysmal last Thursday ...

Jim Harbaugh says there's competition for Blaine Gabbert's backup QB spot

Aug 9 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: ninersnation

Blaine Gabbert, as it turns out, is not overburdened with job security. This isn't hot off the presses or anything, but just in case you missed it: San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said that the backup quarterback job is up for grabs, in so many words. That was following the brutal 23-3 loss at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, in which Blaine Gabbert stunk the place up something fierce. I was very surprised during Thursday's game ... not that Gabbert did ba ...

Patriots vs. Redskins: Score and Twitter Reaction from 2014 NFL Preseason

Aug 7 2014 9:40pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The hosting Washington Redskins dominated the New England Patriots 23-6 in both teams' preseason opener on Thursday at FedEx Field. As is often the case, much of the emphasis in this game went on second-stringers and, in particular, the No. 2 quarterbacks on each side. Washington's dynamic starting signal-caller Robert Griffin III got little work, putting the ball in the hands of his 2012 draft classmate Kirk Cousins. It appears as th ...
