Commanders sign Ferrod Gardner, release Nathan Gerry

Chris Simms makes the case to Mike Florio why Sam Howell has the edge over Desmond Ridder in his Top 40 QB Countdown and examines the QB’s potential for success next season.

The Commanders signed All-XFL offensive lineman Jaryd Jones-Smith last week and they added another player with experience in the league to the roster on Tuesday.

The team announced the signing of linebacker Ferrod Gardner to their 90-man roster. It will be Gardner’s second stint with the team.

Gardner signed with the Commanders after going undrafted out of Louisiana last year, but he failed to make the team. He returned to the practice squad before moving on to the D.C. Defenders this spring.

Gardner made 10 tackles in nine games for the Defenders.

The team also announced that they have released linebacker Nathan Gerry. Gerry also spent time on their practice squad last year and re-signed with the team in March.
