The Washington Redskins have signed free agent tight end Mike Caussin. Caussin signed as an undrafted free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2010. He was placed on the Jags practice squad but was signed off the practice squad by the Buffalo Bills. Caussin spent the past three seasons with the Bills as a reserve tight end and special teams player until they relesased him on July 16, 2014.Caussin now adds more depth to a Redskins tight end unit led by second year star Jordan Reed. Caussin won’t be expected to come in and challenge for any primary pass catching duties, but more likely as a special teams player. The Redskins have been upgrading their special teams all offseason, and Caussin can come in an compete for the third tight end position behind Reed and Logan Paulsen, but primarily as a special teamer.
The Redskins released long snapper Kyle Nelson in order to make room on the roster to sign Mike Caussin. He has 5 career receptions for 41 yards. Caussin spent the last two seasons with the Bills on injured reserve.
