LANDOVER, Md. – The Redskins have signed offensive tackle Vinston Painter, an alumnus of Norfolk’s Maury High School.

Originally selected in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, Washington is Painter’s fifth team. In stints with the Broncos, Browns, Giants and Dolphins, Painter has played in just three NFL games – all in 2014 with Cleveland.
