We have been keeping track of all the reported undrafted free agent signings and tryouts since the draft has ended, and now the Redskins have officially signed some of those players. The team signed four Wide Receivers, 2 NTs, 1 RB, 1 TE, and 1 DB today. The most notable signings are 6'4", 223 lb WR Cody Hoffman from BYU, RB Silas Redd from USC, and NT Robert Thomas from Arkansas who dropped out of the draft after breaking his leg last season.
We tracked 36 players who were either offered contracts or tryouts for this weekends rookie mini-camp. That leaves 27 players who were either erroneously reported or were only offered a tryout. The Redskins cut two players this week, WR David Gettis and K/P Jake Rogers. This means that the Redskins now have 89 players signed and should have 1 open roster spot to fill for the maximum of 90 players in the offseason.

#Redskins are now at roster limit of 90. Look like they have too many safeties (9), C/G (10). Not enough OT (4), FB (1). #RedskinsTalk— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) May 15, 2014
The Redskins’ roster is balanced in one way. 42 on offense, 42 on defense. (6 specialists, two each PK, P, LS).— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) May 15, 2014
