Deal between Joe Mays and Redskins remains possible

The Washington Redskins remain in the running to sign free agent linebacker Joe Mays.

Mays visited the team Saturday but did not immediately complete a deal. According to a person familiar with the situation, the visit went well and an agreement remains possible but was not expected to happen Sunday. Mays was headed for Houston for a visit with the Texans, the person said.

Redskins players had Sunday off. The team is scheduled to resume its training camp practices Monday in Richmond.

Mays was released last week by the Denver Broncos. Signing him would bolster the Redskins’ depth at inside linebacker after reserve Keenan Robinson suffered a torn pectoral muscle last week.
