The Washington Redskins have signed former Georgia QB Hutson Mason, along with four other tryout players from this past weekend's rookie mini-camp.  In addition to Mason, the four other new Redskins are:

  • DL Daryl Waud (CFL)
  • LB Houston Bates (Louisiana Tech)
  • OT Tovar Allen (Alabama State)
  • LB Dasman McCullum (Southern Mississippi)

Last season at Georgia, Mason's stats were impressive: 67.9%, 2,168 yards, 21 TDs, 4 INTs.  He'll join RGIII, Colt McCoy, and Kirk Cousins as the QBs on the roster for OTAs and into training camp.

The Redskins also signed FA LB Alonzo Highsmith.  To make room for the new additions, the following players were released:

  • OT Brey Cook
  • LB James Gayle
  • QB Connor Halliday
  • DL LaKendrick Ross
  • WR Tyler Rutenbeck
