Redskins Trade for QB Kevin Hogan

For the second time this year, the Washington Redskins have traded for a quarterback.

The Washington Redskins traded their sixth round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft (188th overall) to the Cleveland Browns, in exchange for QB Kevin Hogan and Cleveland’s sixth round pick (205th overall).

The probably indicates the Redskins have seen something in Hogan and believe he might possibly be a successor to backup QB Colt McCoy, who is entering the final year of his contract.

Hogan is entering his third NFL season after a college career at Stanford and his first two seasons with the Browns. In eight career games Hogan has completed almost 60 percent of his passes for 621 yards, 6.1 yards per pass attempt, four touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Hogan is a shifty and mobile quarterback, who has rushed for 176 yards in his NFL career, averaging almost 10 yards per carry.

Hogan was originally drafted in the 5th round (162 overall) by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016, but the Chiefs released him in early September that year and the Browns quickly claimed him off waivers.

Seeing a change coming in the Browns organization, Hogan asked the team for permission to seek a trade and today he got his wish granted.
