Redskins sign LB Jared Norris

Recommended Posts

Special team's depth never hurt nobody. 

In both 2017 and 2018, Norris ended up on Injured Reserve for the Panthers. And despite signing a two-year extension with the squad in March of 2019, he didn’t make the Panthers roster. He was waived as part of the team’s final cuts in late August. He simply wasn’t able to beat out some of the younger linebackers on Carolina’s squad for a spot.

Still, Norris does provide some value on special teams. With the Redskins lacking linebacker depth, signing him to compete for a spot on the roster makes sense. And it’s worth noting that some of the best teams in the league tend to have great special teams units and specialists on the roster that primarily play on those units. So, maybe Norris can be that if he can stay healthy.

They just need competition, most likely he's get beat out by the young guys we already have a LB or acquire this offseason.
