Redskins work out Darrell Green’s son, 17 other free agents Tuesday

The Washington Redskins on Tuesday worked out 18 players, including wide receiver Jared Green, the son of Hall of Fame cornerback Darrell Green.

Washington Redskins logoJared Green, who spent the 2012 season on Carolina’s practice squad, signed with the Cowboys this offseason but didn’t survive the final round of roster cuts.

The Redskins didn’t immediately sign any of the players that they worked out just after Tuesday morning’s practice.

Another notable player that worked out for the Redskins was fourth-year veteran Myron Lewis, a cornerback, who played for Washington defensive backs coach Raheem Morris when Morris served as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Morris and the Bucs selected Lewis in the third round of the 2010 draft out of Vanderbilt. Lewis appeared in 28 games from 2010-12 (starting one of them) and recording 19 tackles and three pass deflections. The 6-foot-2, 203-pounder spent the offseason with Detroit but didn’t make the Lions’ 53-man roster.

Another one of the more experienced players to work out for Washington on Tuesday was wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, who spent the last five seasons with the Cleveland Browns. The 6-2, 207-pound Massaquoi appeared in 54 games, starting 43 of them and recording 118 catches for 1,745 yards and seven touchdowns.

Also attending the workout were defensive backs Al Afalava (Oregon State), Jalil Brown (Colorado), Mario Butler (Georgia Tech) and Ross Ventrone (Villanova), center Kevin Kowalski (Toledo), tackle Jason Smith (Baylor), linebackers Justin Cole (San Jose State), Josh Hull (Penn State), Brian Rolle (Ohio State) and D.J. Smith (Appalachian State), quarterbacks Nick Stephens (Tarleton State) and G.J. Kinne (Tulsa), tight end Anthony Hill (North Carolina State) wide receivers Arceto Clark (Mississippi State) and Matt Willis (UCLA).
