Washington Redskins get QB Kevin Hogan from Cleveland Browns

The deal completes a quarterback overhaul by new general manager John Dorsey.

The Washington Redskins have traded for Quarterback Kevin Hogan from the and swapped sixth round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft with the Cleveland Browns. Starter DeShone Kizer was traded to the Green Bay Packers and backup Cody Kessler was dealt to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Hogan requested and received permission to seek a trade.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Kevin Hogan (8) scrambles before throwing a pass under pressure from Houston Texans defensive end Christian Covington (95) during an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017, in Houston.

After helping the Cardinal win three Pac-12 championships, Hogan was drafted by the Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. He was released by Kansas City in September of the same year and then signed by the Browns and put on their practice squad. The club has already acquired veterans Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton, and is widely expected to draft a QB with the first overall pick in next month's draft. He threw for 517 yards, 4 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on 75 attempts.

Hogan saw his fair share of action in relief of an injury-plagued Kizer previous year. His two year rating: 61.9.

Hogan will join Smith, Colt McCoy and Stephen Morris in Washington's quarterback room.

The Redskins only kept two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster last season and coach Jay Gruden has said he's comfortable doing that again.
