The Washington Redskins quarterback situation is far from straight forward.
Robert Griffin III is the starter at the moment, only because of the great expense that the Redskins had to part with in order to draft him back in 2012 and the brief quality he showed as a rookie, rather than anything he displayed last year.
Behind Griffin are Colt McCoy and Kirk Cousins, two men who both saw the field last year during the quarterback carousel at FedEx Field and could well do this year this as well if Griffin struggles again.
The Redskins did have a fourth option however, after they brought in undrafted quarterback Hutson Mason as a camp arm and to see if he could push either of the two aforementioned backups, following Connor Halliday's decision to retire.
But, according to a report from The Washington Post, Mason's career with the Redskins seems over before it could even get off the ground as Jay Gruden and co. have decided to release the former Georgia Bulldogs quarterback.
The Redskins released Mason to make room for offensive lineman Bryce Quigley.
The Detroit Lions signed Quigley an undrafted free agent last year, but he was released in August. San Diego signed Quigley to its practice squad in Week 14, but released him last month.
Quigley started 38 games at San Diego State, including the last two seasons at left tackle. Quigley suffered a foot injury late in his senior season, though he put off surgery so he could play in a bowl game.
