QB Jonthan Crompton is re-signed by Redskins after release of Chris Cooley opens roster spot

A day after releasing him to trim their roster to the league-mandated 75-player limit, the Washington Redskins have re-signed quarterback Jonathan Crompton.

The former Tennessee standout was one of 15 players cut on Monday, but when the team released tight end Chris Cooley on Tuesday, a roster spot was opened up. The team used that spot to bring back Crompton, his agent Joel Turner said late Tuesday night.

Crompton spent all of last season on Washington’s practice squad. He hadn’t appeared in any of the team’s preseason games, but is expected to see roughly a half of action Wednesday night when Washington hosts Tampa Bay in the teams’ preseason finale.

Rookie Kirk Cousins will start the game and is expected to play the whole first half. Starter Robert Griffin III and veteran backup Rex Grossman will not play.
