The Redskins signed former Texans receiver David Anderson on Monday night, according to a report on NFL.com.
Having played for Houston since they drafted him in the seventh round in 2006, Anderson is familiar with the Kyle Shanahan’s offense as he was the offensive coordinator there in 2008 and 2009.
Anderson, 28, has 82 career catches for 895 yards and two touchdowns. His best season game in 2009 when he started eight games and caught 38 passes for 370 yards. The Texans released him earlier this season.
The Redskins will have to release a player to make room for Anderson. They have seven receivers on the roster already plus kick returner Brandon Banks, who also works out at the position, so it is a good guess that the player released will come from that group.
