According to John Keim of ESPN, the Redskins have passed on signings undrafted Oregon QB Vernon Adams following his tryout this past weekend.
Adams reportedly mentioned that he planned to sign with the B.C. Lions of the Canadian Football League in the event he wasn’t signed by the Redskins.
“I could be like a Warren Moon or Doug Flutie,” Adams said. “All I need is a chance. … If they can stop looking at my height and give me a chance they’d get a teammate with a lot of energy and a great leader.”
The Seahawks also brought Adams in for a tryout a few weeks ago, but they too elected to pass on signings him.
Adams, 23, wound up going undrafted on Saturday and is currently among the more notable rookie free agents. It’s actually a little surprising that he’s being forced to try out for teams, but these are both interesting options for him.
In 2015, Adams totaled 2,643 yards passing while completing 64.9 percent of his passes to go along with 26 touchdowns and six interceptions for Oregon. He also contributed 147 yards rushing and rushing two touchdowns.
