Of this group, the Redskins signed Reynolds to their practice squad.

Jackson has worked out for the Texans, 49ers and Rams since he became available.

Jackson, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2014. He signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Falcons back in 2014 and was set to make a base salary of $3.5 million over the next two years when the Falcons released him back this past March in a move that freed up $2.65 million of available cap space.

In 2016, Jackson appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and recorded 13 tackles, no sacks and a pass defense.

Sutton, 25, was taken in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft by the Bears. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2,851,068 contract and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2017 season when the Bears recently cut him loose back in May.

The Vikings quickly signed Sutton to a deal, but decided to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit.

In 2016, Sutton appeared in eight games and recorded 15 tackles and no sacks for the Bears.

Robinson, 27, is a former fifth-round pick by the Jaguars in the 2013 NFL Draft. He finished his four-year rookie contract and has been exploring the open market since March.

The Cowboys hosted Robinson for a tryout back in July but did not sign him to a contract.

In 2016, Robinson appeared in 13 games for the Jaguars and recorded 144 yards on 41 attempts (3.5 YPC) and no touchdowns. He also finished with three receptions for 22 yards.
