The Washington Redskins have signed two players to fill injury-induced holes on their
secondary special teams and another in an attempt to boost their secondary, according to multiple people with knowledge of the situation.
With special teams ace/linebacker Bryan Kehl and long snapper Nick Sundberg lost for the year with knee injuries, the Redskins have signed linebacker Josh Hull and long-snapper Kyle Nelson.
Hull is a fourth-year pro, who spent the first three years of his career with the St. Louis Rams, playing primarily on special teams.
St. Louis released Hull following the preseason.
Nelson is a second-year pro who was released by Seattle in September.
The team also signed safety Trenton Robinson, who had been on Philadelphia’s practice squad before getting released earlier this month. To make room for Robinson, the team released backup Jordan Pugh, who had played sparingly this season.
