On a day that includes blockbuster trades left and right, the Redskins quietly signed former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Stephen Paea.
The four-year veteran was the 53rd overall pick out of Oregon State in 2011. His addition, along with Ricky Jean-Francois, adds youth to the Redskins defensive line.
The news first came out over the last few days but has come to fruition with the new league year beginning at 4 p.m. today.
Paea’s stats peaked at the right time. He made a career-high 33 tackles and six sacks in 2014.
