Redskins Sign DB Jeremiah McKinnon, Release DB Lou Young III
The Washington Redskins made a minor roster move Saturday as the team released defensive back Lou Young III, who was given an injury designation and signed defensive back Jeremiah McKinnon to replace him on the 90-man roster.
McKinnon, 24, was originally signed last season as an undrafted rookie by the Dallas Cowboys out of Florida International University but also spent time with the Tennessee Titans as well.
