The Redskins didn’t waste much time filling the roster spot vacated when the team waived Brandon Jenkins over the weekend. According to John Keim of ESPN.com (via Twitter), Washington’s new 90th man is veteran defensive end Everette Brown, who has signed with the team.
Brown, who will turn 27 in August, was selected 43rd overall by the Panthers in 2009, and recorded 47 tackles, six sacks, and three forced fumbles for the team as a part-time player during his two years in Carolina. Since then, the Florida State product has seem limited regular season action with the Chargers and – most recently – the Cowboys.
As Zac Boyer of the Washington Times notes (via Twitter), new Redskins outside linebackers coach Brian Baker was on Carolina’s staff in 2009 and 2010 when Brown was a Panther.
