Redskins Sign Colt McCoy

The Redskins have added a quarterback to the roster, announcing today (via Twitter) that Colt McCoy has signed a contract with the team. McCoy had been an unrestricted free agent.

McCoy started 21 games with the Browns in 2010 and 2011 after being drafted in the third round in ’10, but has played a backup role over the last two seasons in Cleveland and San Francisco. In Washington, the 27-year-old will fall behind Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins on the depth chart, so he’s not likely to see any playing time barring injuries and/or a trade. The signing presumably also means free agent signal-caller Rex Grossman won’t be returning to Washington.

In 2011, a season in which he started 13 games for the Browns, McCoy threw for 2,733 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions, while completing 57.2% of his passes. He has attempted just 18 passes in the two years since then.
