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.
