Redskins Sign Former Cowboy Jason Hatcher, Three Others
- Updated: March 13, 2014
The first two days of Redskins free agency this year had several fans and analysts confused and wondering if the Redskins would in fact sign anyone to big money. Day three contained a flurry of moves including snatching one of the Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman.
The Redskins signed former Dallas defensive lineman Jason Hatcher. The four-year contract is worth $27.5 million, according to sources. It’s the biggest deal handed out this free agency by Washington, which sought to bolster its anemic pass rush.
I’m proud to say I will be joining the Redskins. God is good. Work time!!!!

The 6-foot-6, 299-pound Hatcher is coming off his best season (Pro Bowl year) with 11 sacks, but he will be turning 32 in July. In the Cowboys 3-4 front, he recorded a total of 8.5 sacks in 2011 and ’12. The Redskins will mix their fronts, using a 3-4 for their base. Hatcher will play end in the Redskins 3-4 scheme, according to a source.
Hatcher isn’t the only Dallas Cowboys player the Redskins are interested in as they are also trying to finalize a contract with defensive end Anthony Spencer as well.
The Redskins also signed former Raider cornerback Tracy Porter and former Texans inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton to deals on Thursday.
Porter will likely be the nickel-back corner covering the opposing teams slot receiver. Sharpton could end up making a serious push at starting alongside Perry Riley if he can stay healthy, which has been an issue thus far in his career.
Washington also reached agreement on terms with defensive lineman Clifton Geathers, who is the nephew of former Redskins player Jumpy Geathers.
