Chris Broussard and Rob Parker react to Jay Gruden's comments regarding whether the Washington Redskins have considered signing Colin Kaepernick due to the team's current quarterback crisis.
Redskins reporter, Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post wrote that Gruden said the following regarding Colin Kaepernick:
Gruden, who said that the decision to not bring Kaepernick in for a workout was made for football reasons only, said Kaepernick had been “discussed, for sure,” but that his skill-set didn’t match what they needed in a quarterback being picked up five days before the team’s next game.
“It’s just going to be a matter of which way do we want to go?” Gruden said. “Do we want to go with a guy that’s familiar with my terminology who we worked out last week . . . or go with a guy and teach, basically, a whole new kind of offense with new offensive linemen with a lot of the zone reads and all that stuff. Not a lot of time to really get a brand new quarterback, a new system installed and taught in a couple days of practice.”
Gruden added: “He’s been talked about and discussed, but we’ll probably go in a different direction.”
Chris and Rob think that the stat comparisons speak for themselves when it comes to the personnel that the Redskins have considered for the quarterback position so far. They also think it'd be foolish not to consider Kaepernick especially if they have a chance to reach the playoffs.
