The Washington Redskins continued to add depth to the defensive line on Friday by signing former San Diego Chargers defensive end Kendall Reyes.

The 26-year-old Reyes played the last four seasons with San Diego and had 126 tackles and 13.5 sacks in 50 starts. Last season, the 6-foot-4, 300-pound defensive end had 32 tackles, two sacks, four pass deflections and an interception. Reyes was drafted in the second round in 2012, making him the highest pick for a defensive lineman in UConn history.

The signing was the Redskins‘ first since the 2016 free agency period began on Wednesday at 4 p.m. Washington retained quarterback Colt McCoy, inside linebacker Mason Foster and veteran nose tackle Kedric Golston, but has been otherwise quiet. The Redskins also signed veteran defensive end Ziggy Hood in February to add depth to their front.

On Monday, the Redskins cut defensive end Jason Hatcher and informed free agent nose tackle Terrance Knighton that he would not be re-signed.
