The Washington Redskins continued to tinker with their roster yesterday, signing cornerback Eric Joyce and receiver Jamin Elliott.

Joyce, who has been on practice squads in Chicago and Miami, played in the final two games for the 2002 Bears. Elliott played in those same two games for the Bears and one for New England in 2003 after spending time on their practice squads.

Joyce was granted a roster exemption in place of injured fellow NFL Europe veteran James Bethea. Undrafted rookie receiver Pedro Holiday was cut to make room for Elliott.

The Redskins also announced that fans are invited to eight practices during the first 11 days of training camp beginning Aug. 1. Though admission is free, fans are encouraged to print out invitations on redskins.com in order for the organization to know how many will be attending each practice at Redskin Park.

Subject to change, the practices open to the public are at 4 p.m. on Aug. 1, 2 and 4; 4:30 pm. on Aug. 8 and 9 and 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 3 and 11. Fan Appreciation Day will be Aug. 5 and will include appearances by the cheerleaders and the marching band as well as a post-practice player autograph session. The time for that practice has yet to be announced. Parking lots will open at 7 a.m. for morning practices and 3 p.m. for afternoon practices.

Meanwhile, former Redskins standouts Ken Harvey, Mark Moseley, Brian Mitchell and George Starke are preparing for an alumni flag football game against a team of ex-Philadelphia Eagles on July 24 at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Center in Landover.
