Washington Redskins: David Canter
The Redskins added a second punter Tuesday when they signed Blake Clingan, the team confirmed Tuesday. Clingan joins Robert Malone as the only punters on the roster. Washington released Sav Rocca earlier this offseason.
Clingan has never punted in the NFL, though he was in Detroit’s camp last summer only to be released in the final cuts. He had earned a contract after a spring tryout. Clingan also had a tryout with Miami in the fall of 2011 as well. Clingan averaged 39.9 yards per punt from 2007-10 at Central Florida.
Malone has NFL experience with 157 punts and 44.5-yard average. But his net of 37.8 reflects his inconsistency with hang time. Redskins special teams coach Ben Kotwica worked with Malone when both were with the New York Jets in 2012 and for two games in 2013.
