Redskins sign CB Justin Rogers

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins filled their final roster spot Wednesday, signing free-agent corner Justin Rogers.

He hasn't appeared in an NFL game in more than a year, but he does have experience. Rogers was a seventh-round choice in 2011 by Buffalo and earned seven starts over the next three seasons. He intercepted three passes and during that time he returned 15 kickoffs for a 28.5-yard average.

But he was cut midway through the 2013 season, then appeared in one game with Houston. Rogers played college football at Richmond.

On Tuesday, the Redskins signed linebacker Ja'Gared Davis off Kansas City's practice squad and promoted linebacker Trevardo Williams off their own practice squad and released three players: linebacker Steve Beauharnais, linebacker Everette Brown and corner Greg Ducre. They also signed running back Michael Hill and linebacker Justin Jackson to their practice squad. The Redskins might need to promote a running back to the active roster with Roy Helu out for Sunday's game at the New York Giants.

Last week, Washington signed defensive back Kenny Okoro.
