Redskins bring back Pugh

The SportsXchange

The Washington Redskins re-signed free agent safety Jordan Pugh just a week after he was released, the team announced Wednesday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Pugh played in 16 regular-season games and one playoff game in 2012 and 2013 before his release on Oct. 15 as part of the Redskins' push to upgrade their special teams. He has seen action in three games this season but does not have a tackle.

Re-signing Push reflects the the Redskins' uncertainty at safety this week because of a two-game suspension that Brandon Meriweather faces and the status of Reed Doughty (concussion).

The 5-foot-11, 210-pound Pugh was drafted in the sixth round out of Texas A&M by the Carolina Panthers in 2010 and was cut before the start of the 2012 season. He then signed with the Redskins.
