There’s a new backup quarterback in Washington.
Colt McCoy, the former Texas Longhorns star who was a third-round pick of the Browns in 2010, signed with Washington today.
McCoy hasn’t found much success so far in his NFL career. In three years with the Browns he started 21 games but struggled to find consistency as a passer. He spent the 2013 season as a backup to Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco.
Now he’ll get an opportunity to compete with Kirk Cousins for the right to back up Robert Griffin III.
