The Washington Redskins signed seventh-round draft pick Jawan Jamison.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Jamison was the 228th player taken overall.
The running back played at Rutgers University from 2010-12, and started 20 games. In his career, he rushed for 1,972 yards on 486 carries with 13 touchdowns.
Jamison is expected to compete with third-year veterans Evan Royster and Roy Helu and fellow rookie Chris Thompson (a fifth-round pick) to earn carries as Alfred Morris' backup.
