The Redskins on Thursday signed their seventh-round pick, former Rutgers running back Jawan Jamison. Rookie contracts last four years under the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement.

Jamison is widely regarded as well-suited for the one-cut zone running game Redskins coaches Mike and Kyle Shanahan are known for. He is expected to compete with third-year back Evan Royster for playing time behind starter Alfred Morris.
