Redskins sign four players to futures contracts

The Washington Redskins on Tuesday signed three of their 2011 practice squad players and one other player to futures contracts.

The team inked quarterback Jonathan Crompton, running back Tristan Davis and safety Travon Bellamy — all of whom had been on the team’s practice squad — as well as guard Nevin McCaskill.

By signing the players to the futures contracts, Washington controls their rights through the offseason, and the players will be able to take part in OTAs.

Crompton spent the entire season on Washington’s practice squad while Davis served two different stints with the Redskins. Bellamy was added to the practice squad late in the season.

McCaskill, a former Hampton University standout, has been with nine teams since entering the league in 2007, but he has appeared in only one game. He spent time with the Steelers and Jets this season.
