ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — The Washington Redskins have signed fifth-round draft pick Brandon Jenkins and sixth-round selection Bacarri Rambo.
They’re the first two players under contract with the Redskins from last month’s draft.
Jenkins played defensive end at Florida State but the Redskins plan to use him as a linebacker. He missed nearly the entire 2012 season after breaking his left foot in the opening game.
Rambo is a safety who failed two drug tests while playing collegiately at Georgia.
The Redskins also announced Monday that they waived New Haven wide receiver Jason Thompson, who signed as a college free agent on May 1.
