11:56am: It’s a one-year deal for McCoy, tweets Albert Breer of the NFL Network.
11:17am: Free agent quarterback Colt McCoy has agreed to terms with Washington and will be returning to D.C. for the 2015 season, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (via Twitter). Specific details of the agreement aren’t yet known.
While Jay Gruden has publicly committed to Robert Griffin III as his starting quarterback heading into the 2015 season, there are still plenty of questions about whether the Washington head coach is committed to RGIII as his long-term quarterback. If Griffin struggles at all in the summer or early in the regular season, McCoy or Kirk Cousins could get an opportunity to play.
In 2014, McCoy earned four starts for Washington, and while he only won one of them, hs put up solid numbers when he got a chance to play. McCoy completed 71.1% of his passes for 1,057 yards, and recorded a 96.4 passer rating.
