Washington knew it was going to need another pass-rusher on short notice, so a familiar face made sense.
After putting Brian Orakpo on season-ending injured reserve, they signed Everette Brown.
Orakpo was lost to a torn pectoral muscle last week.
Brown, a former second-round pick, was in camp with them this summer, but didn’t make it through final cuts.
He’s also spent time with the Panthers, Chargers, Lions, Eagles and Cowboys. He has some ability as a 3-4 rusher.
