The Redskins on Tuesday announced the signing of Cody Booth, an unrestricted free agent.
Booth, 24, spent parts of the past two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears after going undrafted in 2014.
He’s appeared in five preseason games over the last two years but has yet to appear in a regular season game.
Booth spent his collegiate career at Temple, where he appeared in 39 games from 2010-2013.
As a senior in 2013, Booth started 11 games at left tackle and even appeared at right tackle against Louisville after packing on 30 pounds to make a successful transition from tight end to tackle.
He was nominated for the Brian Bulsworth Award, given to a former NCAA walk-on who has made the most of his opportunity while playing football.
During his junior season, Booth started 11 games at tight end, catching 17 passes for 137 yards and four touchdowns.
He would secure his first touchdown – a nine-yard reception – in a victory over South Florida.
During the 2010 and 2011 seasons, Booth would appear in 18 games with four starts.
With the addition of Booth, the Redskins now have 12 offensive linemen on their roster. They also re-signed center/guard Josh LeRibeus this offseason.
