The Redskins announced Thursday they have signed running back Jawan Jamison to his rookie contract.
The 5-foot-8, 203-pound Jamison was taken by the Redskins with the 228th overall pick last month. He left Rutgers after his redshirt sophomore season, when he ran for 1,075 yards and four touchdowns.
Mike Shanahan said when the Redskins drafted Jamison that they were not specifically looking to add another running back after drafting Chris Thompson out of Florida State in the fifth round, but that they had a higher draft grade on him than the seventh round.
The only three drafted players who the Redskins have left to sign are cornerback David Amerson, tight end Jordan Reed and safety Phillip Thomas<
