The Redskins completed the signing of defensive tackle Cedric Killings on Friday, the team has announced. On March 15, head coach Joe Gibbs had announced that Killings had agreed to terms, but the deal wasn't official until two days later.
Killings, 6-2 and 290 pounds, is a three-year veteran out of Carson-Newman. Last season, he played in 10 games with one start and recorded 17 tackles (10 solo).
Killings entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the San Francisco 49ers in 2000. He recorded 18 tackles (12 solo) and three sacks as a rookie.
During his NFL career, Killings has also spent time on the rosters of Carolina and Minnesota as well as a stint in NFL Europe with the Rhein Fire.
Killings joined the Redskins for the 2004 training camp but was released before the start of regular season. He resigned with the team in December 2004.
For his career, Killings has played in 28 games with 10 starts and has logged 37 tackles (24 solo) and three sacks.
