Redskins Sign Four

Yesterday, CSN Washington announced that the Washington Redskins signed four players to reserve/future contracts.

Three of the four players were on the teams practice squad this past season. The team signed cornerback Travon Bellamy, quarterback Jonathan Crompton, running back Tristan Davis, and guard Nevin McCaskill.

By no means do any of these players expect to be critical parts for the Redskins this coming fall. The Redskins have basically claimed these players for their franchise next season.

Cornerback Travon Bellamy spent this past fall on the Redskins practice squad. He was originally cut by the St. Louis Rams after training camp.

Quarterback Jonathan Crompton also spent this past season on the Redskins practice squad. Crompton was originally selected in the 5th round of the 2010 draft by the San Diego Chargers. Before coming to Washington, Crompton spent time on the practice squads for San Diego, New England, and Tampa Bay.

Running back Tristan Davis was signed onto the Redskins practice squad this past October. He has been on the game squads for Detroit, Miami, Minnesota, New Orleans, and Pittsburgh but did not make any appearances in games.

The fourth player that the Redskins signed is guard Nevin McCaskill. He was signed to the Bills practice squad as an undrafted rookie free agent from Hampton in 2007. He has also spent time with the Eagles, Titans, Packers, Jets, Dolphins, and Steelers.
