Washington Signs CB Aaron Colvin To Practice Squad

Aaron Colvin opted against lingering in free agency ahead of the 2020 season. The veteran slot cornerback — a Washington cut Saturday — agreed to stay in the nation’s capital, joining Washington’s practice squad.

A four-year Jaguars cog, Colvin signed a lucrative deal to join the Texans in 2018. He spent a season as Houston’s slot cornerback, but after the Texans’ final-seconds loss to the Saints in Week 1 of 2019, the team made Colvin a scapegoat and accepted a dead-money hit to cut him.

Washington claimed Colvin on waivers and used him in six games. This season’s Washington squad, however, did not include the 28-year-old cornerback. He will work as an emergency player and as one of the team’s veteran P-squad staffers.

Former 49ers first-round guard Joshua Garnett, a late-offseason Washington addition, also opted to avoid another long-term free agency stay. He signed with the Washington practice squad. Given the injury trouble Washington has experienced on its offensive line in recent years, Garnett may end up seeing game action for the first time since 2018.

Here is Washington’s practice squad, as of Sunday afternoon:

Sunday NFL Transactions: NFC East

Listed below are the Sunday roster moves for the four NFC East teams. Following the 53-man roster cutdown deadline yesterday, many teams will make slight tweaks to their rosters, claiming players off waivers or signing guys who clear waivers. Those transactions for the Cowboys, EaglesGiants, and Redskins are noted below.

Additionally, teams can begin constructing their 10-man practice squads today. You can check out our glossary entry on practice squads to brush up on those changes, as well as all the other guidelines that govern the 10-man units, whose players practice with the team but aren’t eligible to suit up on Sundays.

Here are Sunday’s NFC East transactions, which will continue to be updated throughout the day.

Washington Redskins

NFL Draft Pick Signings: 5/1/19

Today’s draft pick signings:

  • The Redskins have signed seventh-round defensive end Jordan Brailford, according to his agents at DEC Management (Twitter link). Brailford, the second-to-last pick of the 2019 draft, should ink a four-year deal worth roughly $2.595MM, per Over the Cap. In his final season at Oklahoma State, Brailford appeared in 13 games and posted 38 tackles (17 for loss) and 10 sacks), but Lance Zierlein of NFL.com says he lacks the size and speed needed to play in space. Brailford will likely compete for backup and special teams duties during his rookie campaign.
