The Redskins lost starter Alex Smith when he broke his leg in November and back-up quarterback Colt McCoy broke his leg against Philadelphia Eagles on Monday. With only four weeks left in the season, Gruden said the Redskins did not want to go in that direction. 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. America's Steve Christakos joins Scottie Nell Hughes to discuss.
We can all say with certainty that Sanchez did not run into the posterior of his offensive lineman with that answer.
"We wanted a guy with a similar skill set with Colt", Gruden said. He said if it had been Week 1 of the season, Kaepernick would have been a better possibility of joining the team.

Now, from the start of 2020 all tickets will be abolished, saving on the collection of fares and the policing of ticket purchases. In order to fund the initiative, a percentage of the cost will be covered by removing a tax break for commuters.
Either that's a awful excuse for why they didn't want to sign (or even seriously consider) Kaepernick, or the Redskins are just a really bad team who can't do what the Baltimore Ravens have managed to do for several weeks.
Gruden said the fear with Kaepernick is that the team would have to "teach a whole new offense with a lot of zone-reads".

On Wednesday, Notley announced Alberta would increase crude-by-rail capacity by an additional 120,000 bdp, starting in late 2019. Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said in a statement that the province isn't considering following Alberta's example.
The Redskins also worked out quarterbacks before signing Sanchez after Smith's injury.
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman believes teams are now more willing to fumble away their playoff chances rather than sign free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick. "I think running the ball will be key obviously and some play-actions getting him outside the pocket can be very beneficial and then the drop back concepts that we have will be things that he is comfortable with". And he has thrown for more interceptions (87) than TDs (86) in the NFL. He underwent surgery to fix his fibula Tuesday. Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the National Football League in October of 2017, alleging an organized effort to keep him off a roster as a result of his protests.
