Officially Official

The Redskins made the Treyvon Hester signing official over an hour after it was reported. They also announced that they have completed their 10-man practice squad by signing OLB Chris Odom, who was cut by the Falcons.

The Redskins had two open spots in their 53-man roster after placing RB Shaun Wilson and OLB Jordan Brailford on IR yesterday. They have filled one of those spots by signing former Philadelphia Eagles DT Treyvon Hester. The Redskins previously only had 5 defensive linemen on the roster, and two of them[Tim Settle (knee) and Caleb Brantley (Lisfranc)] have been dealing with injuries during the preseason.

Hester (6'2", 300lbs) was a 7th round pick for the Raiders in 2017. Hester has been rostered for 28 games, starting one game for Oakland in 2017, and one for the Eagles last year. His claim to fame is tipping the Cody Parkey double doink FG miss against the Bears in last year's playoffs.
