Redskins coach Jay Gruden says team has discussed bringing in Colin Kaepernick

The team needs to sign another quarterback after losing Colt McCoy to a season-ending leg injury on Monday night.

The Redskins could very well continue to roll with Sanchez, but the possible addition of Kaepernick would provide them with a quarterback that could make more of an impact on the field with his arm and legs.

"It's just going to be a matter of which way do we want to go?" he said, via the Washington Post.

"He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go in a different direction".

"Isn't it obvious what's happening?" Clearly, a player's character isn't an issue when making a signing, so what is holding them back from bringing in Kaepernick?

But on Tuesday, Gruden said McCoy could miss 2-4 weeks - which would even give the 32-year-old a chance at returning this year. "Somebody to come in in a pinch and function a little bit".

"For me to go in and play was in an emergency situation and those things happen". Sanchez's experience in a prostyle offense helped out a lot. "That's why we went with Sanchez".

Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance, hasn't played since the 2016 season, when he began kneeling during the national anthem as a way to protest police brutality and social and racial injustice.
