The Washington Redskins have begun adding free agents to their roster for the 2016 season.

The team formally announced on Friday that it has signed big defensive end Kendall Reyes, who becomes Washington's first addition via free agency this year.

Reyes, 26, is a four-year veteran out of Connecticut and was taken with the 49th-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

In his four seasons with the San Diego Chargers, Reyes has totaled 126 tackles with 13.5 sacks, seven passes defensed and an interception.

He also has a connection to current Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry, as the two were together with the Chargers for three seasons (2012-2014).

Reyes made his NFL debut on Sept. 10, 2012, against the Oakland Raiders.

The 6-foot-4, 300 pounder would record his first career sacks as a professional on Nov. 18, 2012, when Reyes took down future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning twice.

In Week 16 that season, Reyes would record a single game career-high in sacks with 3.5 on New York Jets quarterback Greg McElroy.

His 5.5 sacks that season are currently a career-high, although he followed up his debut season with five sacks in 2013, including three in the last six games of the year.

Reyes would record his first career interception on Dec. 24, 2015, when he grabbed a one-yard interception off of Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.

He has yet to miss a game in his career, as Reyes has made 64 career appearances over his first four seasons.

At UConn from 2008-11, Reyes earned first-team All-Big East honors as a junior and senior. He finished his collegiate career having tallied 142 tackles, 11.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and two interceptions in 52 games played for the Huskies.

Reyes is set to join Chris Baker, Ziggy Hood, Ricky Jean Francois and Stephen Paea along the defensive line.

It has been reported that the Redskins are hosting Andre Branch, a fellow four-year NFL veteran, for a visit.
