    Redskins sign Josh Johnson

    Still no Kaep. Is this really the best Washington could do?

    too risky, if everyone was like me though, kareem hunt would probably scooped up by now. the media, protesters, and moral cops/self righteous people would be all over the franchise.

    Lawsuit or no. Kap will never be signed. America is just backwards like that.

    Redskins have no issues picking up linebackers that beat women but apparently speaking up/taking a knee to raise awareness for injustice is a big no no in this league. I get the whole "pissing off the fan base/unwanted negative attention" argument but it goes right out the window when they picked up Ruben Foster.

    The redskins still have a shot at the post season, you would think they would try to go out and sign the best player available to possibly have a shot at competing for the playoffs. Kap has not played in a while, yes but neither had Sanchez and Josh Johnson. Kapernick is a better player and would give the Redskins a better winning chance then Sanchez/Johnson.

    I'm normally on the side of teams not signing Kaep. He hasnt played in 2 years, would be a media nightmare, and the NFL would absolutely screw him over on calls/iffy plays (imo they've done it to Eric Reid all year), but above all its usually a team that's irrelevant and looking towards next year; the Redskins were 6-3 when Smith went down, there's no excuse that they've hired Sanchez and Josh ****ing Johnson over Kaep.

    Do we know Kap is the best player available? Do we know if he is in game shape?

    Even Sanchez, who has been in the system for just three weeks, barely has any knowledge of it. The QB coach was assigned to create a small playbook and work with Sanchez on memorizing and working on his knowledge of just that small section of plays. When McCoy went out, our head coach let the QB coach call plays.

    If anything, signing Kaepernick right now would set him up for huge failure. No one has the time to effectively learn the system and play at their best right now. Add into it that Kaepernick would be a huge media attraction, and has an ongoing discrimination case against all of the owners, and it's just not the time to bring him into any team.

    I've addressed the other points, but here is another one to consider- Kaepernick has an active discrimination suit against the NFL, which includes all 32 owners. If you break ranks with the owners, how ostracized do you think that team and owner would be right now? Potentially at risk of losing their franchise. Snyder and Jerry Jones got hit hard during the uncapped year when they restructured contracts, and that was a business move. For Kaepernick to even be considered, he would have to drop the suit.

    That's what happens when your offensive line has too many players out with injuries -- the quarterbacks get broken legs. A Redskins QB is more likely to get a broken leg than a guy who borrows money from loan sharks. Hopefully Mark Sanchez can stay healthy.

    Also true- Trent Williams has a broken thumb. Both starting guards at the beginning of the year are out with injury, and we lost both replacement guards in the game Monday night. It was so bad a defensive lineman was learning field goal protection on the sidelines.

    However, McCoy's injury was a pivot, and was non-contact out of the pocket. Alex Smith's was broken protection.

    Between Kap, Sanchez and Josh Johnson, Kap is the best player. As for game shape? Josh Johnson hasn't played a game since 2011, if "game shape" was a big concern they shouldn't have signed Johnson.

    I get the playbook/system argument but what good is that when you have Sanchez, who naturally sucks.

    Of all the places that might sign Kaepernick, some of you think Trump's back yard would be a good choice?

    Do we even know he WANTS to be signed at this point? Do we know no team has even contacted his agent recently? Granted Josh Johnson is a DEEP reach.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Bingooooo.... owners decided to penalize us for spending too much money in an uncapped year.. how do you think they would feel if we signed a guy that's got a lawsuit against all of them?

    Yeah, Johnson is a deep reach. I don't get that one, but I don't get adding Kaepernick either. He was pretty bad his last season too.

    I only use the playbook thing as an example, because a veteran QB who was brought in like this doesn't have time to learn the whole playbook. They would be extremely limited. If anything, it sets Kaepernick up for failure if he were to come in and play for Washington.

    His discrimination suit against the NFL would indicate that he doesn't want to be signed at this point.
