Halliday warming up to throw in front of NFL scouts at his Pro Day. -- Less than two weeks ago, former Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday signed as an undrafted free agent with the Washington Redskins. Now, it appears the Spokane native may be done with football.

Halliday was supposed to be one of more than sixty players vying for a roster spot during the two-day Redskins rookie minicamp in Loudoun County, Va. this weekend. When camp started on Friday the former Cougar did not appear on the team's 65-man camp roster, and the team confirmed that he was not attending and would no longer be apart of the team.

ESPN NFL Nation reporter John Keim, who covers the Washington Redskins, tweeted on Friday morning that "QB Connor Halliday is not at Redskins park for the minicamp. Was told that, For now, appears done with football." He added. "Halliday was always a long-term project, but skins could use someone to develop. If RG3 here in 2016, Cousins would not b. Need another QB."

While at Washington State, Halliday suffered a number of injuries that made him miss time on the field. The latest abruptly ended his career at WSU, after he broke his tibia and fibula in a game against USC last November. He also missed the Apple Cup in his redshirt freshman season in 2011 because of a lacerated liver he suffered in a game against Utah.

Halliday led the FBS with 430-plus passing yards a game last season and still finished the year with 3,873 yards passing and 32 touchdowns in 2014 despite missing the final three games of the year. The Ferris High School grad completed 67.3 percent of his passes in 2014 and 62.8 percent in 2013 when he threw for 4,597 yards and 34 TDs as a junior.
