Kevin Durant Wants The Redskins To Sign Colin Kaepernick

Kevin Durant Wants The Redskins To Sign Colin Kaepernick

Head coach Jay Gruden of the Washington Redskins looks on during the second half against the Dallas Cowboys at FedExField on October 21, 2018 in Landover, Maryland. After Alex Smith had his season ended by a gruesome leg injury they turned to backup Colt McCoy, who hadn't taken a snap in an National Football League game in years.

Outside of a 90-yard touchdown romp from Adrian Peterson, McCoy's replacement, Mark Sanchez, proved mostly ineffective in moving the Washington offense.

Washington lost Colt McCoy to a broken right leg in a 28-13 loss at the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night that dropped the Redskins' record to 6-6.

Now, the Redskins are once again on the market for a quarterback, needing someone to come in and backup Sanchez in case he too goes down.

"He's been discussed (internally) but I think we will probably go in a different direction", Gruden said, via the Washington Post. Or, he said, they want someone who is similar in style to Sanchez. Sanchez being with [offensive coordinator Matt] Cavanaugh helped out a lot.

"In order to utilize someone like Colin Kaepernick's skill set, you're talking about a whole new group of formations and run concepts", Gruden said. "If it was Week 1, there would be a better possibility".

It doesn't appear Kaepernick will get the same chance Sanchez did Monday - to play for the first time since the 2016 season. But they're still alive in the playoff race, trailing Dallas by one game in the NFC East.
