The 2018 National Football League (NFL) season is fast approaching, and the Washington Redskins are putting the finishing touches on their roster in hopes of fielding a competitive team during Head Coach Gruden’s fifth season. To posture the team for a bright 2018 season, here are a few of the Redskins’ most recent signings:
– Geron Christian. A 6-foot-5-inch, 298-pound tackle, Christian was the team’s third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and the last of its eight selections to sign a rookie contract. While Christian is expected to serve as a backup this season, the organization has high hopes for him. Christian will have the opportunity to learn from accomplished veterans, such as Trent Williams.
– Garrett Hudson. Adding to the eight college players the Redskins selected in the 2018 NFL Draft, the team signed free agent Garrett Hudson on May 30. The 6-foot-4-inch, 245-pound tight end recorded nine touchdowns on 65 receptions for 1,001 yards in 39 games with the University of Richmond.
– Shawn Lauvao. Washington improved its depth at the left guard position on June 25 as the team announced it had re-signed Shawn Lauvao. A favorite of offensive line coach Bill Callahan, Lauvao will likely start at left guard in 2018, although he may have competition from Ty Nsekhe.
– Jarmarcus King. Hoping to add depth at the cornerback position, Washington signed another undrafted free agent, Jarmarcus King, a 6-foot-1 inch, 185-pound cornerback from the University of South Carolina.
– Adonis Alexander. By means of the supplemental draft, and costing the Redskins a sixth round pick in the 2019 draft, the Redskins recently drafted the 6-foot-3-inch, 193 pound cornerback from Virginia Tech.
