Since controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick began protesting during the National Anthem as a member of the San Francisco 49ers, hysteria has ensued. Team after team has passed on Kaepernick when they needed either a starting or backup quarterback, and everyone knows it's because of the controversy attached to him.

Alas, the truth is a decaying value in today's society. The Redskins will be no different. And the rest of the league likely won't be any different in regards to signing Kaepernick.
Good luck with Mark Sanchez, boys.
