Nsekhe, 31, originally signed on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Texas State back in 2012. He lasted just a month with the Colts before he was claimed off of waivers by the Rams.

In 2016, Nsekhe appeared in all 16 games for the Redskins.
Painter, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2013. He lasted just over a year in Denver before he was waived and later signed to the Browns’ practice squad.
After a brief stint with the Giants, Painter signed on to the Dolphins practice squad during the 2015 and returned the team on a future’s deal. However, he was waived during the preseason last year and later claimed by the Redskins.
In 2016, Painter appeared in five games for the Redskins.
