Dezmon Briscoe Trying To Catch On With Washington Redskins

Former Kansas Jayhawks wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe is trying to land a roster spot with the Washington Redskins. Briscoe was let go by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last month before being picked up by the Redskins.

So far Briscoe has impressed by catching two touchdown passes in two preseason games:

"It's very important," Briscoe said. "You know it's preseason - how this business goes, if you don't produce, you usually have a tough time making the team."

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan sees Briscoe taking advantage of those opportunities, and if he can keep performing there is a chance he could be on the final 53-man roster.

While at Kansas, Briscoe set many wide receiving records and is the all-time leading receiver in yards with 3,240, and he holds the single-season record for yards with 1,407 yards as well as touchdowns with 15. Briscoe still holds the single-game record for most yards by a wide receiver with 269 against Oklahoma in 2008.
