Report: Redskins Signing Former Giants WR Corey Washington to Practice Squad

The Redskins will reportedly add the 6'4" WR to their practice squad

The Washington Redskins will be signing former New York Giants wide receiver Corey Washington to their practice squad according to Jordan Raanan of NJ.com. Washington (6'4", 215 lbs) was an undrafted free agent out of Newberry College in 2014 that signed with the Arizona Cardinals following the draft.  He was waived shortly after and claimed by the Giants, and played well enough in the offseason and preseason to earn a spot on their 53-man roster. Washington appeared in 14 games last season, recording 5 catches for 52 yards and 1 TD. Washington injured his shoulder in the Giants' last preseason game this year and was released with an injury settlement.

Washington becomes an immediate favorite for next year's Mason/Brennan Hype! Awards if he stays on the roster after securing the Preseason MVP award in New York in 2014.  The Redskins have been lacking a big threat at wide receiver for a long time, and will continue to try out different options to fill that role.  Washington's addition to the practice squad has not been confirmed by the team, and their practice squad is already full at 10 players with only one WR*Colin Lockett) currently signed.
