Redskins sign linebacker Quan Sturdivant

Streeter Lecka

The Redskins add depth at a position of need, and fill a roster spot vacated by Wednesday's release of Devery Henderson.

The Redskins added depth to the inside linebacker position Thursday morning and announced the signing of former Arizona Cardinal Quan Sturdivant.

Sturdivant was a sixth-round pick out of North Carolina in 2011 but was cut by the Cardinals during camp the following year. Since then, he had stints with the UFL's Sacramento Mountain Lions and the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad. He has yet to play a regular-season snap in the NFL.

Because wide receiver Devery Henderson's contract was terminated on Wednesday, no corresponding roster move needed to be made to accommodate Sturdivant's signing. He will compete for a reserve role with Nick Barnett, Roddrick Muckelroy and Bryan Kehl among others.

Sturdivant started 38 of his 46 games at North Carolina and recorded 309 career tackles (192 solos), 27.5 tackles for a loss, seven sacks and two forced fumbles.
