The Redskins have signed Lance Lewis, who was with the team through the offseason and part of training camp last year before being released because of an injury.
Lewis, a 6-foot-2, 207-pound receiver out of East Carolina, was not taken in the NFL draft last year and subsequently signed with the Redskins. He sustained a groin injury a week into training camp and was among the first players cut by the team, but returned earlier this month for a tryout during rookie minicamp.
Washington waived Jason Thompson, an undrafted receiver out of New Haven, on Monday and he cleared waivers Tuesday.
