7:44am: Washington and quarterback Colt McCoy have agreed on a new deal, a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). McCoy, of course, will serve as the backup to Kirk Cousins in 2016. McCoy’s deal is for three years, but can void to two, a source tells John Keim of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The new pact gives him a little more security than he had on his last deal.
For his career, McCoy has appeared in 34 games while making 25 starts for the Browns, 49ers, and Washington. Over the last two years with Washington, the Texas product has taken the field six times and started four games, all of which came in 2014. Late last month, head coach Jay Gruden indicated that he wanted to keep McCoy, and Washington got it done today.
