Kendall Reyes lands deal with Redskins

Defensive end Kendall Reyes crossed the country when he was drafted by the Chargers out of the University of Connecticut and he’ll be reversing that trip this year.

According to multiple reports, Reyes has signed a one-year deal to join the Redskins. Reyes is the first new addition to Washington’s roster since free agency opened on Wednesday.

Reyes was a second-round pick by the Chargers in 2012 and spent the last three seasons as a mainstay in their starting lineup. He flashed some pass rushing ability in his first two years, recording 10.5 sacks, but hasn’t been as productive the last two seasons.

He’ll join a Redskins line fronted by Chris Baker, Ricky Jean Francois, Kedric Golston and Stephen Paea. Nose tackle Terrance Knighton is a free agent and isn’t expected back with the team. The Chargers have signed Brandon Mebane as a free agent and will likely make other moves up front as they try to bounce back from a 4-12 season.

    Reyes never could handle starting as a Charger, but can help in spurts as a pass specialist. Glad the Chargers aren’t depending on him anymore.

    Won’t be a starter, but a good rotational piece and that’s needed considering we cut Hatcher

    Re-united with Joe Berry. This kid had his most productive years when Joe was coaching him in San Diego. Good player, good relationship, good fit.

    Joe Berry was the LB coach not the DC. Idk how you got the idea he was coaching him. Reyes is a mainstay on the D-Line. His last two years were horrendous. But at 26 he can turn the tables. Chris Baker (Breakout star) and RJF/Pea could be a good starting lineup. All they need is a Nose. Guess they want Billings in the draft or Pot Roast may want to be close to his phone and stay off social/TV for a while.

    Wow did this guy get beat all the team. Once he had hands on him he was done. I don’t know what happen to him going into year 3 and beyond. Telescope should have cut him when he got here or at least after year one. He kept us from getting someone better for two years. Oh lord ha lay Lu la.
