According to ESPN's John Keim, Redskins' coach Jay Gruden is familiar with Johnson, having spent time with the former Alliance of American Football quarterback. "Not a lot of time to really get a brand new quarterback, a new system installed and taught in a couple days of practice". "He's been talked about, but we'll probably go in a different direction".
"We wanted a guy with a similar skill set with Colt", Gruden said.

In relief, Sanchez completed 13 passes for 100 yards, was sacked twice, and threw an interception with no touchdowns.
"For me to go in and play was in an emergency situation and those things happen".
"It's just going to be a matter of which way do we want to go?" he said, via the Washington Post.
Now, the Redskins are once again on the market for a quarterback, needing someone to come in and backup Sanchez in case he too goes down. The 31-year-old hasn't even had a work out with a team this season, while other QBs like T.J. Yates, E.J. Manuel and Mark Sanchez have gotten calls.
