The Redskins have signed rookie defensive end Jeremy Jarmon, the team announced on Tuesday.

With Jarmon on board, the Redskins have one unsigned rookie--first-round draft pick Brian Orakpo--with two days to go to training camp.

The Redskins obtained Jarmon on July 16 by using a third-round pick in the 2009 Supplemental Draft.


He was the only played selected in the Supplemental Draft.

Jarmon, 6-3 and 277 pounds, started 31-of-39 games at the University of Kentucky the last three years.

He totaled 17.5 sacks in his three-year career with the Wildcats.

Jarmon's best season at Kentucky was in 2008 when he posted a team-high nine sacks, fourth-best in the nation. He also ranked fourth on the team with 62 tackles, including 13.5 stops for a loss, in 13 games.

On Monday, the Redskins released fullback Jonathan Evans on Monday, opening a roster spot for Jarmon.
