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:
He’s not the greatest backup but he’s better than most of our choices

Good QB but I was hoping for better and see this Sanchez

Look how low we’ve sunk… Heaven forbid anything happens to Colt

Only time will tell…hopefully we don’t have to play a backup QB…but if we do, then the season is definitely over so it really doesn’t matter.

Cautiously optimistic with Colt running the offense. Redskins are in deep trouble if something happens to Colt though.

Best out of a lot of bad options considering his many connections to redskins offensive assistants especially on a short week. Also knows the cowboys offense and dak Prescott very well so might give a small edge there as well

he’s got good veteran presence and knows how to get to Championship games.

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.
