For cornerback Greg Ducre and linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat, opportunity is everything.
It was announced on Wednesday that Ducre was signed to the Redskins’ active roster from the San Diego Chargers’ practice squad, while Jeffcoat was signed to the active roster after spending the last few weeks on the practice squad.
“Yesterday at 12 p.m. they just called and told me that they wanted to get me and I agreed,” Ducre said Wednesday before his first practice with the Redskins. “I’m glad they gave me the opportunity to come here and compete.”
Ducre said that he brings great speed with him to Washington along with special teams experience.
“I’ve played gunner, kickoff return – everything,” he said. “Anywhere I can help this team out, that’s where I want to be. One-on-one matchups are what I love.”
Jeffcoat, meanwhile, said he feels pretty good with where he’s at after getting to know the system as a member of the practice squad.
“I’m able to watch the guys that have been doing special teams and learn from them,” he said. “And they’ve been good helping me out and taking me aside and tell me whats going on.
“I plan on coming out here and working my butt off. I can run, I get off blocks and I can do things like that, so on special teams, that’s definitely helps to be able to get in space and make tackles.”
