Why the Redskins discussed and rejected Colin Kaepernick”

Good news, Colin Kaepernick fans: Jay Gruden says the Redskins are seriously considering signing the QB!

Gruden, who said that the decision to not bring Kaepernick in for a workout was made for football reasons only, said Kaepernick had been "discussed, for sure", but that his skill set didn't match what they needed in a quarterback being picked up five days before the team's next game. Sanchez's experience in a prostyle offense helped out a lot.

Grassley vowed to usher the deal through Congress, saying it'll benefit the USA economy and bolster agriculture interests in the Midwest.

Gruden said the Redskins wanted to add a quarterback who either knew his system already - Josh Johnson, who worked out for them two weeks ago, played one year with Gruden in Cincinnati and was with him in Tampa in 2008. He has spent time with the San Francisco 49ers, Sacramento Mountain Lions, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders.

"Gruden said if it were Week 1, there would be a "great possibility" of signing Kaepernick".

Mr McAleenan added: "As the events unfolded, quick, decisive and effective action prevented an extremely unsafe situation". "We will close the Border permanently if need be", he added .

Against the Eagles, the 32-year-old Sanchez compiled a passer rating of 53.7, going 13 for 21 for only 100 yards with one interception and one fumble that he managed to recover. The injury ends McCoy's season. The Redskins are 6-6 and have lost four of their past five games. His camp has been actively pursuing a collusion suit against the NFL owners, alleging that Kaepernick has had work opportunities closed off to him, due to his activism on the national stage.
