Every one of Washington’s eight draft picks is now under contract.
The lone holdout was third-round pick Geron Christian Jamaal Williams Jersey , but the team announced on Thursday that he has agreed to a four-year deal. The other seven picks, including first-round defensive lineman Da'Ron Payne, all signed over a month ago.
Christian spent his college days protecting Lamar Jackson as Louisville’s left tackle and he made 39 starts at that spot before heading to the pros this year.
Trent Williams expects to be ready to go for camp after knee surgery, right tackle Morgan Moses is back and Washington re-signed Ty Nsekhe to provide depth behind them Lyle Alzado Jersey , so Christian should have time to develop if all goes according to plan up front.
The Los Angeles Chargers signed tight end Virgil Green to a three-year contract and kept safety Adrian Phillips with a one-year deal on Wednesday.
The team also extended tenders to receiver Tyrell Williams and defensive end Chris McCain.
Green spent the last seven seasons with the Denver Broncos, starting all 16 games last year and winning a Super Bowl ring in February 2016. While largely serving as a blocker, the Tulare, California Chad Henne Jersey , native also has 71 career receptions for 807 yards and four touchdowns.
The Chargers haven't announced publicly whether they will bring back 37-year-old tight end Antonio Gates, who hopes to extend his record-setting career for at least another season.
Phillips played a key role in his fourth season with the Chargers, starting four games and making two interceptions with 47 tackles. He played extensively down the stretch while Los Angeles rallied to a 9-7 finish.
Williams started 15 games for the Chargers last season, catching 43 passes for 728 yards. The former undrafted free agent had a standout season in San Diego in 2016 Joe Montana Jersey , catching 69 passes for 1,059 yards and seven scores.
Williams was tendered at the second-round level, which means he would make $2.941 million next season. The Chargers have the right to match any deal offered by another club to Williams or McCain.
Williams could be attractive to teams seeking to acquire a receiver from the Chargers, who already have Pro Bowl star Keenan Allen Xavien Howard Jersey , first-round pick Mike Williams and dependable veteran Travis Benjamin returning to one of the NFL's best passing offenses next season.
McCain got increased playing time in his second NFL season, recording five sacks and 20 tackles.
