Redskins sign McDonough, cut Bridget

RICHMOND, Va. -- The Redskins signed defensive end Jake McDonough on Wednesday and cut cornerback Courtney Bridget with a waived/injured designation.

Bridget will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. If the former undrafted free agent does not get picked up by another team the Redskins could place him on injured reserve and bring him back next season. Bridget was a long shot to make the Redskins' roster, but at 6-foot-3 he has good length for a corner.

As for McDonough, he played at Iowa State, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Jets in 2013, but was cut in late July. He then played for Portland of the Arena Football League until being signed to Indianapolis' practice squad last December.
