The Washington Redskins announced that they’ve signed former Jaguars first-round pick DL Ziggy Hood to a reserve/future contract on Wednesday.
Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and training camp.
Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan reports that the Redskins have signed DE Ziggy Hood to a one-year contract.
Washington recently brought Hood in a for a workout, so he was clearly on their radar.
Hood, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Steelers back in 2009. He played out his rookie contract with the Steelers before signing a four-year agreement with the Jaguars in March of last year.
However, the Jaguars elected to release Hood from injured reserve a few months ago. The Bears later signed him to a contract after they released veteran DT Jay Ratliff before cutting him loose close to a month ago.
In 2015, Hood appeared in two games, but didn’t record a single statistic.
