Proven Capable, Redskins Would Like Colt McCoy Back

Posted Mar 6, 2016

Even though he spent the majority of the 2015 season as the team's backup, the Redskins would like to bring pending free agent Colt McCoy back onto the roster.

Even though he spent the majority of the 2015 season as the team's backup, the Redskins would like to bring pending free agent Colt McCoy back onto the roster.

Yes, Kirk Cousins is now entrenched as the Washington Redskins' starting quarterback, but there may still be a spot on the roster for Colt McCoy as well.

McCoy, 29, is set to become an unrestricted free agent next week. But if there is mutual interest from his side, then he may return to Washington after completing the second of two consecutive one-year deals in 2015.

“He’s a good quarterback,” Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said at the NFL Combine. “You can never have too many good quarterbacks in your building. We’ve said that when we had three last year. Obviously, we probably won’t have that luxury this year. But you’ve got to have two at least. It’s a very physical game and quarterbacks have been lost for long periods of time, short periods of time. You need another one to come in and compete and do well. And Colt’s a guy that can do that and proven he can do that.”

The University of Texas legend spent the entire 2015 season backing up Cousins as he powered the Redskins to an unexpected NFC East title.

McCoy would see action in two games including the Week 17 finale against the Dallas Cowboys, connecting on seven of his 11 pass attempts for 128 yards and a touchdown.

While his action was limited during the year, the 2010 third-round pick was, at times, the team’s best quarterback during the 2014 season.

After he replaced Cousins at halftime of the Redskins’ Week 7 game against the Tennessee Titans, McCoy went 11-of-12 for 128 yards and a touchdown while leading Washington to a last-second victory.

The next week on Monday Night Football, McCoy showed a national audience he’s still capable of leading an NFL offense as he completed 25 passes for 299 yards and a two total touchdowns in an upset victory over Dallas.

“I haven’t really put a lot of thought into [free agency],” McCoy said at the conclusion of the season. “I think that over time, over the next month or so, we’ll see. I know I’ve had good conversations with people here, but you never know.”

McCoy will likely test the market to see what ideas other teams might have for him.

While he’s enjoyed his time in Washington, every quarterback wants to be the one leading the team come game days.

“I love what we do here, I love the guys in this locker room, Sean [McVay], and Jay, they dial ‘em up for you and it was fun to watch Kirk play this year,” McCoy said. “I thought he did a really nice job this year, but as a competitor you want to play too, so we’ll see what happens. You never know.”
