The Washington Redskins have signed former Samford defensive lineman Jeremy Towns.
He went undrafted this spring.
He tried out for the New York Jets at a minicamp, but wasn't signed.
Towns had 54 tackles and a forced fumble last season with 2.5 sacks.
He takes over the roster spot vacated when Jerry Rice Jr. was waived-injured.
