Redskins Sign DB Jeremiah McKinnon, Waive DB Lou Young III


The Washington Redskins announced that they have signed DB Jeremiah McKinnon and waived DB Lou Young III in a corresponding roster move.

McKinnon, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Florida International before signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Cowboys. He was set to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season when he was waived with the injury designation.

After reverting to the Cowboys injured reserve list, Dallas later waived him with a settlement back in September.

The Titans signed him to their practice squad before, once again, returning to the Cowboys. Dallas elected to waive him last week.

During his four-year college career, McKinnon recorded 104 tackles, a half sack, five interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, 14 pass defenses, four forced fumbles and two pass defenses.
