The Washington Redskins signed defensive tackle Trevyon Hester on Monday — making him the second former Philadelphia Eagle to join the squad in as many days. 

Hester, a 6-foot-3, 291-pound lineman, had 13 tackles in 12 games last season. He was waived Saturday by the Eagles, who play the Redskins next Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. 

Washington also added former Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood to its 53-man roster on Sunday. Per ESPN, Smallwood received the most waiver claims out of any player available after cutdown day.

With Hester’s addition, the Redskins now have six defensive linemen on the roster.

Washington still has room to add one more player as its roster stands at 52 players. The Redskins had opened two roster spots Sunday by sending Shaun Wilson and Jordan Brailford to injured reserve.
