The Washington Redskins officially signed seven players to future/reserve contracts on Monday including DB Al Louis-Jean.
The other players signed to contracts includes: RB Mack Brown, WR Laron Byrd, OT Takoby Cofield, DT Anthony Johnson, C Austin Reiter, and LB Lynden Trail.
Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and training camp.
Louis-Jean, 22, signed on with the Bears an an undrafted free agent out of Boston College last year. He was unable to make the team’s final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but he later signed to the team’s practice squad and wound up appearing in a number of games last season.
The Bears elected to re-sign Louis-Jean to a two-year contract back in February, but he was unfortunately among their roster cuts at the start of the season.
The Redskins signed him to their practice squad last week.
In 2014, Louis-Jean recorded nine tackles and a pass defense over the course of nine games for the Bears.
