ASHBURN, Va. -- D.J. Hackett signed with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday, giving the team another option for the No. 5 receiver spot after Roydell Williams was waived with a finger injury.
Terms of Hackett's deal weren't disclosed.
"Hack knows the offense, he knows the terminology," Zorn said.
Hackett signed a two-year free-agent deal with the Panthers in 2008, but he caught just 13 passes for 181 yards. He was plagued by injuries, dropped on the depth chart and was cut after one season.
