Redskins Sign CB Kendall Fuller, G Wes Schweitzer

The Washington Redskins announced last month that they have signed cornerback Kendall Fuller and guard Wes Schweitzer. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Fuller is a four-year NFL veteran who entered the league as a third-round selection (84th overall) by the Redskins in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Fuller has started in 31 of the 55 regular-season games he has appeared in with the Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs. He has recorded 225 tackles (172 solo), six interceptions, 26 passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

As a member of the Chiefs, he appeared in five postseason games with four starts and notched 18 tackles (13 solo), one interception and three passes defensed. He registered four tackles (three solo) with one interception and two passes defensed to help guide the Chiefs to a victory against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

In Fuller’s last season with Washington in 2017, he appeared in all 16 games with six starts and finished the season with 60 tackles (42 solo), including two for a loss, 10 passes defensed and four interceptions, which is his career-high for a single season. At age 22, he became the youngest member of the Redskins to record at least four interceptions in a single season since Sean Taylor registered four interceptions in 2004 at the age of 21.

Fuller played collegiately at Virginia Tech and was named the ACC Rookie of the Year in 2013 along with earning Second Team All-American honors in 2014.

Fuller, 25, attended Our Lady of Good Counsel in Olney, Md. He was born in Baltimore on Feb. 13, 1995.

Schweitzer is entering his fifth NFL season after originally being selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the sixth round (195th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. He has appeared in 46 regular-season games with 36 starts.

For his 2018 campaign, he made 13 starts blocking for an offense that averaged 389.1 yards and 6.16 yards per play, the sixth-best mark in the NFL.

In 2017, Schweitzer started all 16 games and blocked for an offense that averaged 364.8 yards and 5.93 yards per play, the third-best mark in the NFL.

In postseason play, he has started the two games in which he has appeared.

Schweitzer played collegiately at San Jose State where he appeared in 38 career games. During his senior season, he was named one of four co-captains and was a four-time academic all-conference honoree.

Schweitzer, 26, attended Chaparral High in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was born Sept. 11, 1993.
