Just in the nick of time to celebrate the sixth anniversary of the world famous Butt Fumble, an National Football League team has given Mark Sanchez a job.

The Redskins on Monday signed the free-agent quarterback to an undisclosed contract in the wake of Alex Smith's season-ending injury, NFL Media reported.

The Redskins were in the market for a quarterback because Smith went down with a gruesome injury during Washington's 23-21 loss to the Texans on Sunday. Redskins offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh was the Jets' quarterbacks coach from 2009 to 2012.

"Without a doubt", Peterson said on Monday. If they win all three games, the Texans should clinch the AFC South division title. "I think this time of the year, you need somebody who's taken some meaningful snaps, [with] a lot of experience, and Mark's done that".


The Redskins have been one of the NFL's best teams at taking care of the ball this season, with only nine turnovers. He went on to have stints with the Eagles, Cowboys and Bears.

Kaepernick hasn't played since the 2016 season, when he got benched in favor of Blaine Gabbert despite having 16 touchdowns against four interceptions in 12 games that season.

Washington will play in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day with first place in the NFC East on the line.

Traded from the Kansas City Chiefs for a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller, Smith was expected to be the short-term option at quarterback.
