Redskins Sign Balmer, Anderson, Johnson

Posted Nov 8, 2011

The Redskins tweaked their roster on Tuesday, adding defensive end Kentwan Balmer, a 2008 first-round draft pick. The team also signed wide receiver David Anderson, a 6-year vet, and cornerback Domonique Johnson.


The Redskins have signed defensive lineman Kentwan Balmer, wide receiver David Anderson and cornerback Domonique “D.J.” Johnson, the team announced on Tuesday.

Balmer may be the most recognizable name because he was a 2008 first-round draft pick (29th overall) of the San Francisco 49ers. He played in a 3-4 scheme for the 49ers.

The 6-5, 315-pounder played two seasons with the 49ers before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks in August 2010 for a sixth-round draft choice.

Overall, Balmer has played in 43 games, with 11 starts, and totaled 83 tackles. Last year in Seattle, he played in all 16 games, recording a career-high 43 tackles.

Balmer, who played college football at North Carolina, was waived by the Seahawks on Aug. 24. He had a brief stint with the Carolina Panthers in preseason but was released again on Sept. 1.

Balmer is a native of Weldon, N.C.

Anderson is a 6-year veteran who has played the majority of his career with the Houston Texans. He was tutored by current Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

Anderson, 5-10 and 193 pounds, has caught 82 passes for 895 yards and three touchdowns. He also has three kickoff returns for a 30.0-yard average and five punt returns for a 5.2-yard average.

Anderson was released by the Texans on July 30. He had a brief stint with the Denver Broncos but was released again. He rejoined the Texas for two games but was released a third time on Oct. 12.

Last year, Anderson caught 11 passes for 117 yards. He posted career highs with 38 receptions and 370 receiving yards in 2009.

Anderson originally joined the Texans as a seventh-round draft pick (251st overall) in 2006. He played college football at Colorado State, leaving the school as the program’s all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards.

Anderson is a native of Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Johnson, 6-1 and 191 pounds, has played in 10 career games, all with the New York Giants. He has posted three tackles on defense and six special teams tackles.

He made his NFL debut on Dec. 21, 2009 in a game against the Redskins.

Johnson joined the Redskins from the Minnesota Vikings practice squad. He has also had NFL stints with the Broncos and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Johnson played college football at Jackson State from 2007-08. He transferred there from Missouri.

He is a native of Texas City, Tex.
