The Redskins are reportedly bringing Richard Crawford back to Washington

ProFootballTalk reported earlier that the Redskins were signing former Vikings safety Jamarca Sanford to fill one of their two open roster spots.  Now Grant Paulsen is reporting that the Redskins plan on bringing back CB Richard Crawford.  Crawford was drafted by the Redskins in the 7th round in 2012, and saw some action his rookie year at CB(Tony Romo Week 17 INT) and as a punt returner(Baltimore game).  He tore his ACL and LCL during a 2013 preseason game and missed the entire season.  He returned to the team during the offseason, but was cut during the final roster cutdown to 53 players.  Crawford was signed to the practice squad, but was released on September 9th.

DeAngelo Hall ruptured his Achilles tendon during last Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he was placed on injured reserve.  The team signed Chase Minnifield from the practice squad for depth.  The starting cornerbacks in Thursday's game against the Giants were 2nd year CB David Amerson and rookie Bashaud Breeland.  Breeland was replaced by Tracy Porter during the game, and E.J.Biggers has been handling the slot cornerback role.  Tracy Porter played for the first game of his Redskins career after missing over a month of playing/practice time with a hamstring injury, and was reportedly sore after the game.  The Redskins have a lot of inexperience and question marks at the CB position.  We'll see what role Richard Crawford will play on this team.
