2014 Redskins Undrafted Free Agents – Tommy Rees and Silas Redd: The Redskins have good depth at both quarterback and running back, but two undrafted free agents will get an opportunity to make an impression.
1. Tommy Rees, QB – Notre Dame – (6-2, 210): Rees became the full-time starter for the Irish as a Senior. Decent arm strength. Sort of a poor man’s Andy Dalton. The Redskins are pretty well stocked right now at quarterback, so it will be very hard for Rees to make the team. But sometimes you never know.
Rees played in a spread offense at Notre Dame, so it’s possible his skills will translate better to the pro-style offense that Jay Gruden will run with the Redskins. For now, Rees will operate as more of a camp arm, but if he can make a positive impression it may earn him the chance to be kept on the Redskins practice squad at the end of preseason.
2. Silas Redd, RB – USC – (5-10, 212): Redd is not a burner, but is more of a grind it out type of runner on the ground. Like Rees it will be hard for Silas Redd to make the Redskins final roster. They have a number of running backs on the depth chart above him, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he got caught up in the numbers.
But Redd played in a pro-style offense at USC, and if he can stay healthy he might be able to make some noise.
