Colin Kaepernick's attorney weighs in on Redskins not working out his client

McCoy is scheduled to undergo further testing Tuesday, but he's expected to be out for the rest of the season, Gruden said.

Gruden said the fear with Kaepernick is that the team would have to "teach a whole new offense with a lot of zone-reads".

This isn't the first time that Kaepernick's name has been brought up around the league as a possible addition, but the Redskins could become a realistic landing spot for the quarterback at this point. "But we will probably go a different direction". He has spent time with the San Francisco 49ers, Sacramento Mountain Lions, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders.

Gruden told reporters during a conference call Tuesday that would there have been "a greater possibility" of considering Kaepernick if the Redskins were in need of a QB in Week 1 rather than at this stage of the season now.

"It's about evaluating the skill set", Gruden said. But they're still alive in the playoff race, trailing Dallas by one game in the NFC East.
