Former Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins signed a one-year deal with the Bears, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
#Bears have agreed to terms with DE Jarvis Jenkins on a 1-year contract. It will be official after he passes his physical later today.

Jenkins is the fifth Redskins unrestricted free agent to leave this offseason, following the departures of linebacker Brian Orakpo to the Titans, wide receiver Leonard Hankerson to the Atlanta Falcons, and running back Roy Helu Jr. signed with the Oakland Raiders. Safety Ryan Clark retired. Read the rest of this entry »
For the third consecutive season, the Washington Redskins will not receive any compensatory picks in the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft.
The NFL announced the 32 compensatory picks on Monday night, and not surprisingly Washington didn’t receive any. Last year’s signing of Jason Hatcher negated all losses.
Under the rules, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.
Here are the 32 picks: Read the rest of this entry »
The Redskins took another step in re-building their secondary today, and signed former Seattle Seahawks safety Jeron Johnson. He was with the Seahawks from 2011 until 2014, and backed up Pro Bowl strong safety Kam Chancellor.
Johnson tweeted the news early Monday afternoon, and the NFL’s Ian Rapoport confirmed and tweeted out the details of the deal – two years, $4 million.
It's official I found me a new home!! #HTTR

The #Redskins are signing safety & ST Jeron Johnson to a 2-year deal worth $4M, source said. He visited this weekend.
— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 16, 2015
Johnson only had one start in Seattle, but was a special teams mainstay. He appeared in 46 games, and had 43 tackles, and two forced fumbles. The Redskins don’t have the venerable Chancellor on their roster, or anyone like him, so Washington likely has every intention of giving Johnson a shot at starting. Plus, Scot McCloughan knows what he has in Johnson first hand, from his time in Seattle – he was a senior personnel executive when Johnson made the team as an undrafted free agent.
With last year’s starters gone (Ryan Clark retired and Brandon Meriweather was let go), Johnson isn’t likely the last safety addition that the Redskins will make. Despite his inexperience, he may prove to be the best one.
McCloughan’s fifth free agent decision, is his fifth defensive acquisition. All shrewd. All low key. All young guys. All guys that can help make the Redskins a better ball club.
Hail to the Redskins!

Hail to the Redskins.
The new Redskins General Manager Scot McCloughan wasted little time in getting active in free agency, by signing former Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois. The deal is reportedly a 3 year deal worth $9 million with $4 million guaranteed; but could be worth as much as $11.25 million with incentives, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Ricky Jean-Francois just signed a 3-year deal with the Redskins, per @RosenhausSports. Worth $9M with $4M guaranteed. Total value is $11.25M

Francois was released by the Colts on Monday, and the Redskins, 49ers, and Seahawks were rumoured to be interested. The 49ers actually drafted him originally, but it was McCloughan who was the GM in San Francisco at the time. It was actually the last draft selection he made there. Read the rest of this entry »
