Washington is the sixth NFL team for the Riverhead native, who went undrafted this year. Maysonet, who turns 24 Friday, signed with the Eagles as a free agent in late April and has since spent time with the Browns, Colts, Chargers and Jets, who released him from their practice squad Oct. 22.

The 5-10, 210-pound running back was a runner-up for the Walter Payton Award as outstanding player in the Football Championship Subdivision and was the first Stony Brook player ever invited to the NFL combine.
