ESPN thinks Redskins will trade either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy
The Washington Redskins have one of the more intriguing quarterback situations in the NFL heading into 2019.
With Alex Smith likely sidelined for all of next season as he recovers from a gruesome broken leg injury, the Redskins entered the offseason with Colt McCoy at the top of the depth chart. Then, Washington added some competition for McCoy, as it went out and traded for Case Keenum.
But then, the Redskins made their biggest move of the offseason late last month, selecting Ohio State signal-caller Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.
So, now, Washington is going into the 2019 campaign with a heck of a race for the starting job under center, as Haskins, Keenum and McCoy will all be vying for the position.
But will the Redskins even hang on to all three quarterbacks going into the season?
ESPN’s Dan Graziano doesn’t seem so sure.
While Haskins will obviously be on the roster and is seen as the frontrunner to win the opening-day job, Graziano thinks that the Redskins will look to trade one of Keenum or McCoy, which makes plenty of sense.
Washington acquired Keenum earlier in the offseason because it was not sure if it would be even to land the quarterback it wanted in the draft, as most felt that Haskins would go in the top 10.
But now that the Redskins have their desired quarterback of the future, it wouldn’t make much sense to keep both Keenum and McCoy as their backup signal-callers.
