Listen: Washington Redskins, Alex Smith And Colt Mccoy discussed on CBS Sports Radio
"CBS. This like old news now. But it's news case keenum traded to the Washington Redskins. It won't be official until the new league year starts, but the Broncos get a twenty twenty draft pick in exchange for him. Keenum has already got the big slap in the face. I mean, he was already shocked to win the Broncos traded for Joe flacco, but at twenty twenty draft pick welders keenum did rework his deal. And now has just this one year with the Redskins, but Denver saves a ton of money by trading him as opposed to cutting him. So there's going to be a much larger cap hit and penalty. If the Broncos didn't find a trade partner and this works for the Redskins too. Although here's the and Rappaport again, busy guy. He said this is not keenum's job. He's going to have to compete with Colt McCoy. Cole McCoy has been there. A long time. Jay Gruden likes him for his ability. Liked him. Because he knows the system. All that's great. He's been in the NFL long time. And I say if you can continue to earn a paycheck is a backup quarterback in the NFL more power to you. There are only so many and Colt. Mccoy's been around for a while. Now. But for the Redskins. The bigger issue is not having Alex Smith back more than likely the injury that he's recovering from the broken leg. It may keep him out for all of two thousand nineteen it may end his career. I hope that's not the case. But the Redskins have no choice, but to find a stopgap until they know what's happening with Smith until the decide if they wanna go and draft someone young. Obviously he'd be young that was brilliant, Amy as a Friday morning piece of brilliance right there. They want to draft someone old. This is more about bridging the gap until they know specifically what's happening with Smith. But also what they wanna do in the future with their depth chart. So keenum to the Redskins. He'll be as third team in three years. We mentioned this just at the end of last hour, but Tom Seaver the great baseball hall of Famer who won three hundred eleven games and struck out thirty six hundred forty batters was a World Series champ with the Mets and sixty nine. Nicknamed the franchise. He's been diagnosed with dementia and will be retiring from public life. So I'm glad we got so much of his life. The neat thing is this. He's going to continue working at his vineyard in California. So he gets to do what makes them happy while he lives out the rest of his years with his family. All right again, you can find me on Twitter also on Facebook. Buffalo was pointed to as the destination for Antonio Brown by NFL network's Ian Rapoport, it's been disputed, but you're still weighing in. I gotta think it would be the the right match the right marriage. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. NBR's San Francisco. A Cumulus station. Gary, and Larry, nobody cares when you have a lot of type A personalities and everybody can live in their social media bubble where it's gigantic numbers of people just kissing people's. But I think teams grow apart. You know, one instance on the field or one tweet one tax and"
