The Washington Redskins have signed quarterback Colt McCoy, the team announced.

The former Cleveland Browns starter and University of Texas standout played last season for the San Francisco 49ers.

Last year, the Browns traded McCoy and a 2013 sixth-round pick to the 49ers in exchange for the 49ers'  2013 seventh-round and fifth-round picks.

He has passed for 4,401 yards, 21 touchdowns and 20 interceptions for a 74.9 passer rating.
