New, comments

The Redskins announced their 8 man practice squad.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The final pieces of the roster were finalized today with Dezmon Brisco being placed on IR today after a second opinion on his should. The team announced its 8 man practice squad today and there were some tense twitter moments with regards to Chase Minnifield and the final spot on the PS roster.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Minnifield did indeed draw interest from other teams once he cleared waivers, I&#39;m told. But Minnifield preferred to return where he started.</p>&mdash; Zac Boyer (@ZacBoyer) <a href="https://twitter.com/ZacBoyer/statuses/374242933085462528">September 1, 2013</a></blockquote>

And the winners are:

· LB William Compton

· DL Dominique Hamilton

· RB Jawan Jamison

· OL Tevita Stevens

· OL Xavier Nixon

· WR Nick WIlliams

· CB Chase Minnifield

· WR Lance Lewis

The talent on this list is pretty much "homegrown:" Minnifield and Jamison were draft picks/ Compton, Stevens, Nixon, and Williams were all UDFAs 2013/ Hamilton and Lewis were UDFAs in 2012.
