Practice squad complete

← return to Redskins 360

Back here at Redskin Park where the first open locker room session of the season starts at 11:15 a.m., followed by practice at 1 p.m.

The Redskins completed their eight-player practice squad today by signing WR Onrea Jones and LB Darrel Young. They also announced the signing of QB Andre Woodson, which was completed Sunday.

Young was in camp with the Redskins and Jones was with the Arizona Cardinals this preseason.

Jones played at Hampton and is from Williamsburg. He’s bounced around, spending time with Arizona, Green Bay, Houston, Indianapolis and San Diego but as far as I can tell, never appearing in a regular season game.

The Redskins have gone local this year. Players from the region include Jones and J.D. Skolnitsky (Fairfax) on the practice squad and on the 53-man roster, Kevin Barnes (Glen Burnie), DeAngelo Hall (Chesapeake), Marcus Mason (Potomac), Will Montgomery (Clifton, Va.), Byron Westbrook (D.C.) and Edwin Williams (D.C.).

Young, an undrafted free agent from Villanova, impressed during the preseason so his inclusion on the practice squad isn’t a surprise.
