Washington show NFL teams would rather lose than sign Colin Kaepernick
Washington were pushing for the playoffs until two of their quarterbacks went down injured. But they have ignored a perfectly solid replacement
Colin Kaepernick will never play in the NFL again, that much was made clear this week. Washingtonâ€™s decision to sign the lightweight talents of Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson over Kaepernick, a week after claiming Reuben Foster â€“ a man arrested twice in the last year for domestic violence â€“ on waivers and announcing to the world that it was prioritizing winning football games above all else, is as shameful as it is predictable.
Washington plucked Johnson, who last threw a pass in the NFL in 2011, out of obscurity this week to back up Sanchez after Colt McCoyâ€™s season ended with a broken fibula. McCoy previously replaced Alex Smith, who is out for the season with a broken leg suffered in Week 11.
