The Redskins signed free agent linebacker Josh Hull on Tuesday and released safety Jordan Pugh, league sources told

A team official has also informed Comcast SportsNet’s Chick Hernandez that the team will add long snapper Kyle Nelson. The 27-year-old appeared in six regular season games for the Chargers in 2012 and two preseason games with the Seahawks in August before being released. 

Nelson will replace Nick Sundberg, who will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

Hull, 26, is a fourth-year pro who spent the previous three years in St. Louis, where he appeared in 27 games and was used mostly as a special teams player. He’ll take the roster spot of Bryan Kehl, who suffered a season ending knee injury Sunday night in Dallas.

Hull was one of 18 players who worked out for the Redskins during the team’s bye last week.

The Redskins have also added former Michigan State safety Trenton Robinson, according to a report posted to on Monday night.

Robinson, who was a Spartans captain along with Kirk Cousins, spent five weeks on the Eagles’ practice squad before being released Oct. 8. The 23-year-old appeared in three games for the 49ers in 2012.

Pugh, meantime, appeared in three games for the Redskins but was inactive Sunday night.

Update: The Redskins have confirmed all of the roster moves.
