Washington Redskins sign 5th-round pick Brandon Jenkins, 6th-round Bacarri pick Rambo

The Washington Redskins have signed fifth-round draft pick Brandon Jenkins and sixth-round selection Bacarri Rambo.

They're the first two players under contract with the Redskins from last month's draft.

Jenkins played defensive end at Florida State but the Redskins plan to use him as a linebacker. He missed nearly the entire 2012 season after breaking his left foot in the opening game.

Rambo is a safety from Georgia. He failed two drug tests in college.

The Redskins also announced Monday that they waived wide receiver Jason Thompson, who signed as a college free agent on May 1.
