Twitter reacts to Redskins signing Mark Sanchez

The Washington Redskins have moved quickly to bring in a veteran backup after Alex Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury on Sunday, and the move they made is one that is sure to create a lot of buzz.

In fact, it already has.

According to numerous reports, the Redskins are signing Mark Sanchez. Since the former first-round pick played with the Dallas Cowboys in 2016, ESPN’s Adam Schefter notes that Washington believes he will be able to get up to speed quickly with an upcoming game against his former team on a short week.

Sanchez has appeared in just two games since 2016. The former New York Jets starter spent 2017 with the Chicago Bears, but he did not get on the field at all during the regular season. As you might expect, Twitter had a lot of fun with Washington’s decision to sign the man whose most noteworthy achievement in the NFL was “The Butt Fumble.”

There has already been talk about Washington’s search for a veteran backup being further proof that Colin Kaepernick has been blackballed by the NFL, and the signing of Sanchez will do nothing to dispel that notion.
