Redskins Fill Holes Left By Cooley, Hightower, Lichtensteiger
Terrell Owens isn’t the only currently-out-of-work player auditioning for an NFL roster spot.
Dozens of players have been working out for dozens of teams throughout the season, and this week has been no different. Up until this point, however, the Redskins didn’t have any glaring holes to fill.
Times have changed.
They signed offensive lineman Jonathon Compas and tight end Dominique Byrd to the active roster, and running back Tristan Davis to the practice squad.
Compas is a former undrafted rookie (2009) out of the University of California-Davis who can play both guard and center.
Byrd was drafted in the third round (2006) out of USC by the St. Louis Rams and has had several stints with NFL teams. He will compete with Mike Sellers for the third tight end spot.
Tristan Davis was also undrafted (2009) and played his college ball at Auburn. He went to the practice squad so my guess is he’ll compete with Evan Royster for the third running back spot on the active roster.
