The Redskins announced that they have signed center Kevin Kowalski to a futures contract.

A third-year pro out of Toledo, Kowalski spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. He appeared in 11 games as a rookie, but didn’t start any of them. The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder missed all of the 2012 season with an ankle injury and then was released by the Cowboys prior to the start of the 2013 season. Kowalski didn’t catch on with another team. 

The Redskins last week signed seven players to futures deals  meaning they control their rights during the offseason and that they can take part in offseason workouts and practices, but aren’t guaranteed to make the 53-man roster  and then added another, wide receiver David Gettis, on Tuesday.
