Official announcements of undrafted free agent signings have slowed, but they haven’t come to an end.

The Redskins announced their group of signees on Thursday afternoon. They’ll be at the start of Washington’s rookie minicamp on Friday.

The 12 newest Redskins are Syracuse running back Antwon Bailey, Southern Miss wide receiver Kelvin Bolden, Louisiana Tech running back Lennon Creer, Oklahoma State center Grant Garner, Alabama wide receiver Darius Hanks, Cal linebacker Donnell Holt, Jacksonville State linebacker Monte Lewis, East Carolina wide receiver Lance Lewis, New Hampshire linebacker Brian McNally, Hawaii defensive tackle Vaugn Meatoga, Virginia cornerback Chase Minnifield and Michigan running back Michael Shaw.

Minnifield is an interesting and familiar name. He’s the son of longtime Browns corner Frank Minnifield and was expected to be picked in the second or third round coming into the 2011 season. He suffered a knee injury, though, and needed surgery in January that obviously had an impact on draft boards around the league.
