FRIDAY, 2:53pm: The Redskins have officially signed Hatcher, the team announced today (Twitter link).
THURSDAY, 5:20pm: Former Cowboy Jason Hatcher is signing with the Redskins, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter). Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the contract is a four-year deal (via Twitter), with Todd Archer of ESPN.com adding that the total worth of the contract is $27.5MM (via Twitter).
The defensive lineman was a valuable member of the Cowboys this past season, after recording 19.5 sacks as a defensive end and defensive tackle over the past three years. However, the team’s cap situation kept them from competing to retain his services. Hatcher will be the latest addition to the Redskins defense this afternoon.
