Redskins Sign Justin Medlock

After completing the tryout tour with several teams around the league, former Chiefs kicker Justin Medlock has signed with the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins were expected to bring in place kickers to challenge Graham Gano in training camp, and it appears Justin Medlock could be among the group.

The team today announced the signing of Medlock, whom the Kansas City Chiefs selected in the fifth-round of the 2007 draft.  Kansas City released Medlock after the 2007 season opener.

The former UCLA All-American spent the 2008 offseason and training camp with the St. Louis Rams.  Medlock, 26, made 40 of 46 field-goal attempts, including a long of 52 yards, last season for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.

After the disaster that was his rookie season in Kansas City, Medlock seemed to find his groove up in Canada.  While playing for the Argonauts he made nearly 90% of his kicks and even had a long of 52.
