The Washington Redskins signed third-round supplemental draft selection Jeremy Jarmon on Tuesday, leaving first-rounder Brian Orakpo as the club’s only unsigned pick.

Earlier this month, the Redskins surrendered their third-round pick in the 2010 draft to take Jarmon, a defensive end from Kentucky. He agreed to a four-year contract with a $755,000 signing bonus.

A 6-foot-3, 277-pounder, Jarmon started 31 of 39 games at Kentucky and posted 17.5 sacks, third-most in school history. He was ruled ineligible for his senior year by the NCAA after failing a test for banned substances. Jarmon said he took an over-the-counter dietary product.

Jarmon will start training camp as a backup at left defensive end to veterans Phillip Daniels and Renaldo Wynn but could play a role on special teams.

Seventy-nine players are expected to report to training camp Wednesday. Orakpo is one of 28 unsigned first-round picks.
