CSN: Will McCoy leave the Redskins and return to Texas?

Mar 8, 2016, 4:23 PM EDT


The Redskins would like to have Colt McCoy back as their No. 2 QB. But he may be looking for greener pastures (and more playing time) elsewhere. Tandler takes a look on

    Colt McCoy will take anything to get out of DC and stop riding the pine behind ‘average joe’ Kirk Cousins.
    McCoy is a hero back in the Texas and he would make a great backup for Tony Rhomo.
    There is no future for anyone in DC. When it boils down to it could you ever see Jay Gruden and Kirk Cousins hoisting the Lombardy?! No Way. Jay Gruden is not going to win a superbowL.

      Gary Kubiak. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

      Colt is a worn out retread and nothing more than a career backup, like your recently released hero. He was replaced by Weeden, who was replaced by Manziel. He wasn’t all that in 2014 either. Were he all that he would have gotten the nod over Kirk when Robert showed he was not the guy.

      Why not? We saw Gibbs hoist 3, with 3 different QBs.

      Your blinded by your love for RGme!

    I can’t blame Colt for wanting a chance to start somewhere (possibly his last), but I don’t think Dallas is the answer. I doubt if Houston is looking for someone his age as their savior, either.

    Ideally (for us), we keep him and draft a 3rd day development QB.

    Sheesh and they called me a Gruden hater! Sounds more like his agent is leaking reports or casting interest. There is the obvious TX connection so why not? It’s why Johnny, Robert and any other QB from TX are always linked to the Cowboys. Now yeah, Romo misses time regularly but would he really want to sit and wait for a chance when he can go into Texans camp and possibly win the job for himself? The article only references a beat writer so maybe it’s not the agent trying to drum up some interest for his client but it wouldn’t be surprising if that’s what it turns out to be. Maybe just a slow news day in TX. So many other teams have bad QBing situations that about the only place I’d rule him out of is Cleveland.

    By the way, Rich, from what I understand on the interwebs, this is the 4th year of the 2013-2016 salary cap period.

    To make it simple: NFL teams don’t have to spend 89% of their salary cap. The salary cap floor does not apply to any single season, only to the entire 2013-2016 period. That means that not being in compliance in any single year is not going to be a problem for any team. Only if a team has so chronically underspent that they managed to still be below 89% over the entire four-year period, will they be held accountable.

    What this means is the Raiders and Jaguars have TONS of money to spend, and if they don’t, it will just go straight to the players union.

    Obviously a very bad year to be competing for the few quality free agents available. And it means even the 2nd tier are going to be pricier than they should be.

    Rich, with Dashon Goldson, Jason Hatcher, RGIII, and Jeron Johnson gone, there are now needs at FS, DE, Backup QB, and Backup SS. The Redskins now have about $26 million to spend, who else will they cut, how are the Redskins going to fill their needs, are they going after any big name free agents, and if they are looking at certain free agents who may they be.

    Maybe Matt Hasselbeck would be a good 2nd if McCoy leaves. A veteran Qb like him could help Cousins.

    • John - Mar 8, 2016 at 11:22 PM

      He’s OK but he’s a 100.

    • James McFullan - Mar 8, 2016 at 11:42 PM

      So if the Redskins get the same deal on Hasselbeck that the Colts got, 1 year $3,000,000, but now the Redskins have about $17,699,005, but the Redskins still need a Middle Linebacker, a Free Safety, a Nose Tackle, a Running Back, and a Center, and possibly a Left Guard, I left out Defensive End because of Chris Long visiting with the Redskins. They could cut Lichtensteiger, Lauvao, DHall, and Perry Riley Jr. That would put the cap space up to about $31,699,005. They could resign Mason Foster and Will Blackmon for $3,000,000 a year each. That lowers the cap space to $25,699,005. Minus whatever they sign Chris Long for. So that makes the cap space about $20,000,000. Get Lamar Miller for $6,000,000 a year, Tashaun Gipson for about $4,000,000 a year, and Damon Harrison for about $6,000,000 a year. That leaves $4,000,000 in cap space and they can then draft the BPA in the 1st round, Tyler Boyd in the 2nd round, and Nick Martin in the 3rd round.

      Per Adam Schefter on Mike & Mike this morning, hassle back has said he won’t be playing this year. Retiring. Archives
