The Washington Redskins announced Wednesday that they’ve signed CB Lou Young to a contract and waived DB Shak Randolph.
- Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer first reported that the Redskins were expected to sign Young after he worked out for them Wednesday.
Young, 25, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech back in May of 2014. He lasted just a few months in Denver before he was waived during the final week of the preseason.
After brief stints with the Ravens and Jaguars, Young signed a future/reserve contract with the Panthers last year but has been among their final roster cuts in each of the past two seasons.
He was on and off of the team’s active roster last year. The Panthers ultimately elected to waive Young shortly after this year’s NFL draft.
In 2016, Young appeared in six games for the Panthers and recorded one tackle and no interceptions.
