Redskins make a roster move: 

Did the Redskins fumble this one?

On Monday afternoon it was announced that Mark Sanchez was signing a contract with the Washington Redskins. The details of the contract were not released, but one has to think it was just for the remainder of the season.

None of this would even be considered, but, on Sunday the Skins’ lost their starting quarterback Alex Smith for the rest of the season with a broken leg. Sanchez, along with EJ Manuel and TJ Yates was just a handful of guys who got a workout offer from the Redskins.

Out of those three, the Skins liked what they saw from Sanchez.

In 2009 Sanchez helped lead the New York Jets to an 11-5 record and an AFC Championship appearance, however, the Jets lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 24-19. He spent five years with the Jets. Sanchez has a familiar sense in the NFC East as he’s played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys.

Fans weigh in on Sanchez signing:

Redskins fans for sure wanted Kaep to be on the roster, but, the truth is simple: Washington was not interested, and they likely were never interested.

Good news is the Skins’ play the Cowboys on Thursday, on Thanksgiving, with a backup quarterback in McCoy who last made an important appearance in 2014 on Thanksgiving against none other than Dallas … Washington won that game, too.
