The Colin Kaepernick-to-Washington news cycle doesn’t seem to end.

Yahoo Sports columnist Charles Robinson reported Sunday that Kaepernick will play for any NFL team that offered him a job, including the Redskins, with whom he’s been linked by some who badly want to see it happen.

The Redskins are a special case among teams, because their nickname has drawn more criticism in recent years and because owner Dan Snyder is against players kneeling for the national anthem, a movement Kaepernick started.

Two sources in Kaepernick’s camp told Yahoo that the quarterback would play for “any NFL team,” including Washington, even though there is no sign the Redskins want Kaepernick.

Despite losing both Alex Smith and Colt McCoy to leg injuries, the Redskins are going forward with Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson. They were humiliated 40-16 by the Giants on Sunday, but it’s too early to tell if that will change the team’s feeling about adding Kaepernick.

Jay Gruden previously said the team had “internal discussions” about Kaepernick but thought it would be a better possibility if they needed to add a quarterback at the start of the year, rather than December, due to scheme fit and Kaepernick’s style.

It was reported earlier Sunday that no team has given Kaepernick a call this season. There are just three weeks left until the playoffs, a time when most every team has its quarterback situation intact.
