Report: Tom Compton Will Not Return To Redskins

Posted Mar 9, 2016

After four seasons with the Redskins, Tom Compton, a restricted free agent, will not be returning to the team that first brought him into the NFL, according to reports.

After four seasons with the Redskins, Tom Compton, a restricted free agent, will not be returning to the team that first brought him into the NFL, according to reports.

The Washington Redskins appear to be going in a different direction from Tom Compton, as CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Tarik El-Bashir reported on Wednesday that the tackle will be moving on from the team that drafted him.

Compton, 26, was selected with the 193rd-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft out of South Dakota.

The 6-foot-5, 308 pounder spent the majority of his rookie season on the practice squad before being signed to the active roster before Week 13 that year. He was active for the Redskins’ Week 16 27-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on December 23 but did not record any game action.

During the 2013 season, Compton appeared in 15 games and made his NFL Debut against the Eagles on Sept. 9. In an overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 13, Compton appeared on four offensive snaps, three of which resulted in Darrel Young touchdowns including a four-yard score in overtime for a victory.

Compton would once again see his reps increase during the 2014 season, as he not only played in all 16 games, he would start the final nine games including his first career start against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football on Oct. 27.

But with the team first drafting Brandon Scherff with the idea he’s instantly be the team’s starting right tackle, followed by Morgan Moses’ inclusion in the starting lineup for all 16 regular season games, Compton was used as a backup tackle and also as an extra blocker in the team’s “giant” package.

In total, Compton appeared in 212 offensive snaps during the season along with 96 special teams snaps.

If this is the end of his tenure in Washington, Compton will have appeared in 44 games with 10 starts as a member of the Redskins.

The Redskins still have Trent Williams, of course, along with Morgan Moses and Ty Nsekhe returning at tackle along with Takoby Cofield, who spent the entire 2015 season on the practice squad after signing as a college free agent.
