Washington has re-signed QB Colt McCoy to keep him with the team through 2015 along with fellow QBs Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins, though he will not compete for the starting job.
QB Colt McCoy is re-signing with Washington, per source. So it’s RGIII, Kirk Cousins and McCoy back together again.

Originally the 3rd-string QB for Washington at the season’s start, McCoy went 91-of-128 passing for 1,057 yards with four TDs and three INTs last season in relief of RGIII and the primary backup Kirk Cousins . He saw significant playing time in two of Washington’s three wins, including its upset of Dallas. A mid-December neck injury ended his season.
A third-round pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2010, McCoy started 21 games in his first two seasons with the team before the Browns drafted Brandon Weeden in 2012 to be their QB of the future. He spent all of 2013 as a backup in San Francisco before signing with Washington in 2014 and getting a chance to start once again.
On Monday Night Football on October 27 this past season, McCoy led Washington to a 20-17 upset road win over the Dallas Cowboys in McCoy’s home state of Texas, where he led the Texas Longhorns to a National Championship appearance in 2009
