Redskins Claim OT Xavier Nixon Off Waivers From Colts

The Washington Redskins claimed OT Xavier Nixon off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts on Friday, according to the NFL transactions release.

Nixon, 24, actually signed on with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Florida back in 2013.

The Colts later signed him off of the Redskins’ practice squad before waiving him earlier this week.

Last year, Nixon appeared in four games for the Colts. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 99 snaps to go along with poor ratings in both run and pass-protection.
