The Washington Redskins have signed CB Tye Smith to their practice squad on Tuesday, according to his agent Sean Stellato.
The Redskins will need to make a roster move as they’re currently at the 10-man limit. Here’s how their practice squad looks right now:
- OT Isaiah Williams
- WR Maurice Harris
- LB Jason Fanaika
- WR Kendal Thompson
- TE Wes Saxton
- OL Vinston Painter
- RB Mack Brown
- LB Amarlo Herrera
- DE Bobby Richardson
- C Ronald Patrick
Smith, 23, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in May of last year. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2.446 million contract and set to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season when the Seahawks cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
Seattle later signed him to their practice squad before cutting him loose in recent weeks.
In 2015, Smith appeared in four games for the Seahawks and recorded one tackle and no interceptions.
