Colin Kaepernick’s attorney weighs in on Redskins not working out his client
Colin Kaepernick’s attorney weighed in on the Washington Redskins not working out his client despite their quarterback needs.
Washington’s starter Alex Smith is out for the season with a compound fracture in his leg. Backup Colt McCoy suffered a broken right fibula on Monday night, though he has not been ruled out for the season. That has left Washington with Mark Sanchez as their starter, so they’re in desperate need of another QB.
On Tuesday, head coach Jay Gruden said the team had considered Kaepernick but decided against working him out. They didn’t have a great reason for not bringing him in.
Jay Gruden said QB Colin Kaepernick was discussed but said there's "not a lot of time to get a brand new QB and a system installed and taught in a couple days. He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go in a different direction."

Kaepernick’s attorney for his collusion case, Mark Geragos, seems to think it’s obvious that this coincides with the collusion issue, according to comments shared by The Washington Post’s Mark Maske.
Mark Geragos, Colin Kaepernick's attorney in his collusion grievance against the NFL and teams, on the QB-needy Redskins saying they considered inviting Kaepernick to a workout but decided against it for football reasons: "Isn’t it obvious what’s happening?"

Kaepernick still has not given up on his dream of resuming his NFL career even though he is not receiving interest from teams.
Washington is giving consideration to Ryan Mallett, Landry Jones and Josh Johnson.
