Finlay also stated that Redskins head coach Jay Gruden knows who will back up the Texas alum.
McCoy, 33, has been with the Redskins since 2014 playing primarily as a backup to Robert Griffin III. and Kirk Cousins in his time in Washington.
The Redskins added Case Keenum and drafted Dwayne Haskins in the first-round of this year’s draft to try and soften the blow of losing journeyman Alex Smith last season.
