Former Chiefs QB Alex Smith out for season with Redskins after injury

- National Football League quarterback and free agent Mark Sanchez has signed the Washington Redskins, according to reports. The former USC standout was drafted No. 5 overall by the New York Jets in the 2009 NFL Draft.

The insane play originally happened on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22) back in 2012. Redskins passing game coordinator Kevin O'Connell was a backup quarterback for parts of three seasons with the Jets during Sanchez's time there. In April, he was suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. He was the top quarterback there for four years, starting 62 games, throwing for 68 touchdowns and 69 interceptions.

Speaking in his postgame media conference, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said: "Alex has had a great career, obviously, without a doubt".

Redskin's offensive line coach Bill Callahan was in the same role for the Jets from 2008 to 2011. Washington's passing game coordinator Kevin O'Connell is also familiar with Sanchez and that's because he backed him up for two seasons in NY. One of those turnovers became known as the "Butt Fumble", a play in which Sanchez lost the ball when he slammed into a lineman's backside.

Maybe the Washington Post should've looked at their headline from 33 years ago to see what a proper post is supposed to look like.

Since then, he's made just 10 starts, all for Philadelphia in 2014-15.
