The 29-year-old McPhee spent the past three seasons in Chicago. The Bears waived the linebacker last month. McPhee compiled 14 sacks and 90 tackles the past three season.
If healthy, McPhee can boost a Washington pass rush that lost Trent Murphy in free agency. Staying injury-free was McPhee's biggest problem in Chicago. He missed 12 games the past three seasons, including ending 2017 on IR with a shoulder injury.
