Colt McCoy signed with the Redskins on Thursday, the team announced.

McCoy started a total of 21 games from 2010-11 for the Browns before becoming a full-time reserve in 2012. Last season, he was Colin Kaepernick’s backup with the 49ers. 

McCoy (6-1, 215) will presumably be the Redskins’ No. 3 quarterback behind Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. Cousins is open to being traded but head coach Jay Gruden said recently that the Redskins had not been contacted by another other teams.

As for McCoy, he has a career 58.3-percent completion rate and has thrown 21 touchdowns and 20 interceptions in 28 contests. His arrival likely signals the end of Rex Grossman’s four-year tenure in Washington.
