CB Crezdon Butler Finalizes Washington Redskins 53-Man Roster

After an active NFL Cut Day on Friday, the Washington Redskins were left with just 52 men on their roster, one short of the league's maximum of 53 players.

On Saturday, head coach Mike Shanahan announced the addition of that final player, cornerback Crezdon Butler.

Via 106.7 the Fan's Redskins beat report Grant Paulsen:

Butler played his college ball at Clemson, and was selected in the fifth round of the 2010 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Due to injury, he has played in just five games in the NFL since being drafted, but if healthy should add depth to a Washington secondary a bit depleted after the loss of safety Tanard Jackson, who was suspended for a year by the NFL on Friday.
