Linebacker Terence Garvin took a couple of visits after free agency opened last week as he looked for a spot to play football during the 2016 season.

One of those visits was with the Redskins and it appears Garvin found what he was looking for in Washington. The former Steeler tweeted out a picture of a signed contract laying on top of Redskins gear on Thursday afternoon.

Garvin was not tendered by the Steelers as a restricted free agent, leaving him free to sign with any team without any chance for Pittsburgh to match the deal. Garvin joined the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2013 and has primarily seen action on special teams during his three NFL seasons.

His most notable NFL play came while doing special teams work. Garvin broke Bengals punter Kevin Huber’s jaw with a block during a punt return in 2013, ending Huber’s season and earning himself a $25,000 fine from the league.
