News: Jean-Francois signed a three-year, $11.25 million contract with the Redskins on Thursday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Impact: Jean-Francois was released by the Colts earlier this week, making him eligible to sign with a new team before the start of the free agency period. He figures to at least compete for a starting job in Washington, but he's never been much of an IDP producer, with just 96 tackles (64 solo) and 8.5 sacks through five NFL seasons.

News: Jean-Francois' agent says the defensive tackle has agreed to a $9 million, three-year contract with the Washington Redskins. The agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirms Thursday night that the deal includes $4 million in guaranteed money.
Impact: Jean-Francois was released this week by the Indianapolis Colts in a cost-cutting move. The Colts had signed him to a $22 million, four-year contract in 2013, but the club decided to take salary-cap savings of nearly $5 million by cutting ties Monday. He had three sacks and made 13 starts for the Colts last season.

News: The Colts have released Jean-Francois, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Impact: With Jean-Francois, who was slated to earn a $5.5 million base salary in 2015, now out of the mix and Cory Redding possibly retiring, per Kevin Bowen of Colts.com, defensive line looks like an area of need for the team in advance of free agency and the NFL Draft.
