Redskins Sign Two Cornerbacks
Just one day after the Washington Redskins released cornerback Tracy Porter, the team signed a pair of free-agent cornerbacks in Trey Wolfe and Tajh Hasson.
Some may remember Wolfe’s name as he was on the Redskins practice squad last season,
Hasson (6-1, 195 lbs), is an undrafted free-agent from UNLV who ran a 4.46 forty-yard dash at the combine. Hasson had two interceptions and 14 pass breakups in his final two seasons at UNLV.
The pair joins an already crowded secondary that includes Chris Culliver, DeAngelo Hall, Bashaud Breeland, David Amerson, Tevin Mitchel and Justin Rogers.
The Redskins website had the following to say about the duo:
Trey Wolfe — CB — 5-11, 193 pounds — Fort Valley State
Wolfe entered the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks as a college free agent Aug. 5, 2014, and was waived by the Seahawks a day later before re-signing with the team Aug. 10. He was signed to the Redskins’ practice squad Nov. 26, and re-signed with the team Thursday after being waived May 4.
