A free agent quarterback with starting experience is staying put.
Colt McCoy will re-sign with Washington, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday.
McCoy, 28, connected on 91-of-128 passes for 1,057 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions last season for Washington. He saw significant playing time in two of the club’s four wins, including its upset of Dallas. A mid-December neck injury ended his season.
Washington coach Jay Gruden has named Robert Griffin III the starting quarterback entering 2015, which leaves McCoy and Kirk Cousins as the club’s top reserve options.
