Redskins Sign Three, Cut Two, Place QB Josh Woodrum On IR

The Washington Redskins announced Sunday that they’ve signed three players to contracts including QB Jalan McClendon, DB Dejuan Neal and LB Darrell Williams.

Washington also waived LB Garrett Sickels with an injury designation and cut WR T.J. Rahming.

Redskins QB Josh Woodrum was placed on injured reserve.

Sickels, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State back in 2017. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Colts cut him loose coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad.

Sickels had a brief stint with the Browns before signing on with the Rams in October. He returned to Los Angeles on an exclusive rights contract last year, but was waived with an injury designation and later reverted to the Rams’ injured reserve list. 

Los Angeles declined to tender qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent. The Redskins signed him to a contract a few weeks ago. 

During his college career at Penn State, Sickels recorded 94 tackles, 21.5 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks, a forced fumble, two recoveries and a pass defense over the course of 33 games.

Woodrum, 26, signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Liberty back in 2016. He lasted just a few days in New York before he was waived after the team signed QB B.J. Daniels to their roster. 

From there, Woodrum had brief stints with the Colts, Bills, Bears, Ravens and Browns before returning to Baltimore in 2017. Unfortunately, the Ravens cut him loose coming out of the preseason last year and he eventually signed on with the Redskins this past April.

During his four-year college career at Liberty, Woodrum threw for 10,266 yards while completing 63.9 percent of his passes to go along with 61 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. He also contributed 228 yards rushing and 16 rushing touchdowns.

McClendon, 6-5 219lbs, began his college career at N.C. State before transferring to Baylor for the 2018 season. He wound up going undrafted back in April before agreeing to a contract with the Ravens. 

Baltimore, unfortunately, cut him loose a few weeks later. 

For his career, McClendon threw for 977 yards while completing 58.7 percent of his passes to go along with four touchdowns and seven interceptions over the course of four seasons and 29 games played. He also rushed for 325 yards and four touchdowns.
