Redskins Sign Former Chiefs Kicker Justin Medlock

The Washington Redskins announced today that they've signed kicker Justin Medlock to a reserve/futures contract. 

Medlock, of course, used to play for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs drafted him in the fifth round of the 2007 draft (over Mason Crosby), which is pretty high for a kicker.

Medlock was given the starting job in the preseason when the Chiefs traded Lawrence Tynes to the New York Giants. He struggled during preseason that year going 3/6 and the Chiefs released him after one regular season game, which included a 30 yard missed field goal.

Some of the best reactions to the Redskins signing, via Twitter:

They must not have watched any tape of him with the Chiefs

his best game was the rookie skills challenge! Can't believe the chiefs took him over mason

They should sign me as their kicker. I can still hit from 45 yards out.
