The Washington Redskins have signed free agent safety Devin Holland, who previously played for Secondary Coach Raheem Morris when Morris was the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This is according to a report from Zac Boyer.
Holland, a 24-year-old who played his college ball at McNeese State and Tulane, signed with the Bucs in 2011 as an undrafted free agent. He played sparingly in Tampa in 2011, compiling four tackles in five games through the early part of that season.
Holland is an enthusiastic hitter who earned two fines worth a total of $15,000 in the 2011 preseason for hits on Danny Woodhead of the Patriots and a Kansas City Chiefs player.
The Redskins did not cut anyone to make room for Holland, instead using a week-long roster exemption to add him to the roster.
