Jay Gruden ‘Skins Considering Signing Kaepernick … But Likely Won’t
Good news, Colin Kaepernick fans: Jay Gruden says the Redskins are seriously considering signing the QB!!!
Bad news, Colin Kaepernick fans: Jay Gruden says they likely won’t.
Just a day after losing their SECOND starting QB in less than a month … Washington’s coach says the team has discussed inking Kaep — but then revealed they probably won’t.
“[There’s] not a lot of time to get a brand new QB and a system installed and taught in a couple days,” Gruden said on a conference call with reporters Tuesday.
“He’s been talked about and discussed, but we’ll probably go in a different direction.”
Of course … the ‘Skins lost Alex Smith to a gruesome injury back on Nov. 18 — but passed on signing Kaepernick the following week in favor of adding Mark Sanchez.
But … on “Monday Night Football” — the Redskins lost yet another starter when Colt McCoy broke his fibula — and now say Kaepernick’s back in play.
Gruden says the team will have a workout with QBs later this afternoon … though it’s unclear if Kaepernick will be a part of those.
Back in November, after Smith’s injury … the ‘Skins reportedly worked out EJ Manuel, Josh Johnson and T.J. Yates before going with Sanchez.
