Sanchez will serve as the backup to Colt McCoy.
The Redskins brought in a group of five free agents quarterbacks for tryouts on Monday and it looks like Sanchez proved to be their best option.
It’s worth mentioning that Sanchez played for Redskins offensive line/assistant head coach Bill Callahan previously.
Sanchez, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Jets back in 2009. He spent five years in New York before signing on with the Eagles in 2014 after the Jets cut him loose.
Sanchez later returned to Philadelphia on a two-year contract before being traded to the Broncos in return for a 2017 conditional pick that wasn’t exercised. The Cowboys elected to sign Sanchez to a contract for the 2016 season and after one year in Dallas, he signed a one-year contract with the Bears last offseason.
Sanchez served a four-game suspension to open the season.
In 2016, Sanchez appeared in two games for the Cowboys and completed 10 of 18 pass attempts for 93 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.
