The Washington Football Team announced Monday that they’ve promoted WR Jeff Badet to their active roster and placed WR Tony Brown on waivers.

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.
Badet, 26, wound up going undrafted out of Oklahoma in 2018. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Vikings, but was waived coming out of the preseason.
Minnesota re-signed Badet to their practice squad and brought him back on a futures contract last January. However, he was, once again, among their roster cuts at the start of the regular season.
Washington signed Badet to their practice squad in September and he’s been on and off of their roster.
In 2020, Badet has appeared in two games for Washington, but has yet to catch a pass.
