The Redskins have reportedly signed TE Matt Veldman. Washington Times' reporter Zac Boyer was the first to report the news, and he also noted that DE Doug Worthington was the only Redskins player not at this mornings practice. CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir also reports that Doug Worthington was the player cut to make room for Veldman.

Veldman(6'7", 255lbs) played college football at North Dakota State and went undrafted in 2012. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jacksonville Jaguars but spent his rookie season on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in the third preseason game. Veldman was also signed by the Detroit Lions and the Tampa Bay Bucaneers in 2013. He was on the Lions practice squad last season after being re-signed in December, and he was brought up to the 53-man roster for Week 17.
