The Redskins have re-signed safety Deshazor Everett to a multi-year deal, per a team announcement. Everett was scheduled to be a restricted free agent.
Everett stepped up into a larger role for the Redskins this year amidst injuries in the secondary. Appearing in 14 games (eight starts), Everett set new career highs in tackles (52), passes defensed (5), and forced fumbles (1).
This year, the original round tender is set at $1.907MM. The Redskins feasibly could have applied the tender to Everett to have the first right of refusal, though they would not have received any draft compensation for the former UDFA if he signed elsewhere.
In related moves, running backs Dare Ogunbowale and Kenny Hilliard and tackle Kevin Bowen have been waived.
