The Redskins on Tuesday added two offensive players to the practice squad in former Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave and William & Mary product Jerry Ugokwe.

The Washington Redskins announced on Tuesday that they have signed quarterback Joel Stave and offensive lineman Jerry Ugokwe to the practice squad.

In a corresponding move, the team released quarterback Alek Torgersen from the practice squad. Guard Kyle Kalis was also signed to the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad, making room for Ugokwe’s signing.

Stave joins the Redskins after previously spending time on the practice squads of the Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks.

During the preseason this year with Kansas City, Stave completed 4-of-9 passes for 80 yards and one touchdown.

Stave originally signed with the Vikings as a college free agent in 2016 after spending four seasons at the University of Wisconsin.

The 25-year-old joined the Badgers’ program as a walk-on but finished his career as the school’s all-time winningest quarterback with a 31-10 career record.

In total, Stave threw for more than 7,600 yards and 48 touchdowns.

After being cut by the Falcons last week, quarterback Alek Torgensen received a spot on the Redskins’ practice squad, where he will begin his development at the position.

Upon his release from the Atlanta Falcons last Friday, Alek Torgersen flew to New York City with a bag packed of essentials to visit some friends. He waited for his phone to ring — not sure if any NFL team would give him another shot — until Sunday, when the Redskins offered the rookie quarterback a spot on their practice squad.

“I got the call to come here and I was ready to go, my bags were packed, nice easy flight from New York and it was a lot of fun,” he said after his first day of practice. “A whirlwind of emotions, the lowest low’s and the highest high’s – it’s been a crazy experience so far.”

Had that call not taken place – had the Redskins not waived quarterback Nate Sudfeld and no other teams found his talents necessary – Torgersen was ready to travel to Oslo, Norway, where his father was born, raised and now lives, coaching a women’s crew team. Now, he’ll wait to go at a later date.
