Washington Redskins have waived long snapper Kyle Nelson and have signed former Bills tight and Mike Caussin, according to the NFL’s daily transaction report.

Nelson played in 11 games for Washington last season after Nick Sundberg was lost for the season because of an injury that required surgery.

The two competes for long-snapper duties during the offseason. Sundberg remains on the roster.

Caussin played for James Madison University before joining the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2010. But his stay in Jacksonville was brief. Caussin signed with Buffalo the following year, but didn’t play in a game. Last season, he recorded five catches for 41 yards in six games.
