Richard Sherman calls out the Redskins for passing on Colin Kaepernick

After Colt McCoy was their latest quarterback to go down Monday night, thrusting Sanchez into the starting role moving forward, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he didn't expect to the team to bring in Kaepernick.

When Kaepernick's case is eventually heard, that may be the external catalyst for teams to sign him, one that Sherman says they now lack.

"He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go in a different direction". Sanchez's experience in a prostyle offense helped out a lot. They didn't have a great reason for not bringing him in.

The Redskins signed Sanchez in part because their passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach Kevin O'Connell played with him in NY. 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. "If it was Week 1, there would be a better possibility".

He was the first player to kneel during the U.S. national anthem.

The Redskins signed Mark Sanchez in November and he is now the only QB on the roster. Sanchez went 13-of-21 for 100 yards and an interception without much knowledge of the playbook.

"It's about evaluating the skill set", Gruden said. He underwent surgery to fix his fibula Tuesday. He filed a grievance against the National Football League previous year, saying team owners colluded to keep him off rosters. The Redskins are 6-6 and have lost four of their past five games.
