A day after getting released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe was claimed off waivers from the Washington Redskins on Friday.
The transaction was reported by NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk, citing TheSidelineView.com.
Briscoe had 35 catches for 387 yards and a team-high six touchdown catches for the Bucs last season.
The Redskins have remodeled their receiving corps by adding Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan to the roster and releasing Jabar Gaffney. Leonard Hankerson and Santana Moss are the favorites to be the third and fourth receivers, but it is unclear what Briscoe's role will be.
Briscoe failed first-year Bucs coach Greg Schiano's conditioning test and missed some offseason workouts, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
