    Helmet Redskins Make Roster Moves - 10/26

    PRESS RELEASE



    For Immediate Release

    Oct. 26, 2011



    REDSKINS MAKE ROSTER MOVES

    ASHBURN, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed tight end Dominique Byrd and offensive lineman Jonathan Compas to their 53-man roster and signed running back Tristan Davis to their practice squad. The team also released guard John Malecki from their practice squad.

    Byrd (6-3, 255) was originally drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the third round (93rd overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft. Byrd has six career receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown in 15 career games. After two seasons with the Rams, he was released on April 29, 2008 before signing with the Arizona Cardinals on May 5, 2009 after spending a year out of football. He was released on Nov. 24 before resigning with Arizona to a reserve/futures contract on Jan. 21, 2010. He was released on Aug. 30 prior to signing a reserve/futures contract with the Seattle Seahawks on Jan. 21, 2011. He was released by the Seahawks on Aug. 13.

    Byrd played collegiately at Southern California from 2002-05, where he played his final two seasons with current Redskins tight end Fred Davis. In his time at USC, he appeared in 39 games and totaled 81 receptions for 968 yards and four touchdowns. In 2004, he was All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention.

    Compas (6-3, 300) originally signed with the Oakland Raiders as a college free agent on April 29, 2009 before being waived on Aug. 31. He was claimed off of waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sept. 1. He appeared in two games with the Buccaneers before being released on Sept. 24, 2010. He signed with the New England Patriots on Aug. 3, 2011 before being released on Sept. 2.

    Compas played collegiately at UC Davis (Calif.), where he appeared in 36 regular season games from 2005-08. Compas, who received starts at both right guard and right tackle during his college career, received first team All-Great West honors in his sophomore, junior and senior seasons.

    Davis (5-10, 212) originally signed with the Detroit Lions as a college free agent on Aug. 24, 2009 before joining the team’s practice squad on Sept. 6. He was released on Oct. 30 before joining the Miami Dolphins’ practice squad on Nov. 9. He was signed to the Dolphins’ offseason roster Jan. 6, 2010 before being released on Aug. 23. He signed with the Minnesota Vikings as a free agent on July 31, 2011 before being released on Sept. 2 and joining the New Orleans Saints’ practice squad on Sept. 21. He was released a day later, and was added to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ practice squad on Oct. 5 and was later released by the Steelers on Oct. 18.

    Following a redshirt year during Auburn’s undefeated season in 2004, Davis played collegiately at Auburn from 2005-08, seeing action at both safety and running back in addition to handling kick return duties. Davis appeared in 36 games, rushing 19 times for 253 yards and three touchdowns during his college career. He also amassed 1,455 yards and two touchdowns on 55 kick returns. In 2006, he totaled a then-school-record 756 kickoff return yards.

    Not sure about the other guys, but Dominique Byrd was a great player at USC when he was there. Another guy in the Fred Davis mold....big, but had speed and great hands. Really got down the field well. Could turn out to be a decent pickup.

    Wondering why Royster hasn't moved up.....hope he does.

    I imagine they are deciding who to cut/demote to PS? He will probably escape again, but Banks' lack of production so far this year has got to put a target on his chest.

    Sellers hurt his back and is in the hospital. Did it while lifting weights.

    Bad luck everywhere.

    The simplicity in me is complicated.
    I live in my own little world, but that's ok. They know me here.

    It's hard to believe that looking across the league with 32 practice squad units that an interior OL that was a 2011 draft choice wasn't available for us to bring in and look at.

    Compas has been around the NFL for 2 plus years and has already been around the block and had the tires kicked.

    At 6'3 and 300 he looks a bit small to be an NFL center, forget about right guard and tackle.

    Oh, but there was! His name was Maurice Hurt, 7th round pick of the Washington Redskins.

    Hurt was already activated last week before the Cooley move to the IR.

    I think Ryman and I are talking about additional moves outside the organization.

    A guy with a bit better size wouldn't hurt either.

    A report says that the Washington Redskins have released recently signed OL Jonathan Compas from the 53, as Brandyn Thompson replaces him. -via Chris Russell

    Well, looks like there was never any plans to hold onto Compas anyway, he was just a placeholder. Probably signed him because they've had an eye on him, just to see what he could do. Thompson up likely due to the D. Hall uncertainty.
