At least two of Washington's coaches are familiar with him: defensive coordinator Gregg Williams coached him for three seasons in Buffalo, as did safeties coach Steve Jackson. Prioleau is a six-year veteran who has started 38 games, appearing in 80. He started 26 games under Williams in Buffalo. But he was also known for his special teams play, another area Washington is desperate to improve.
Prioleau spent his first two seasons with San Francisco, which drafted him in the fourth round out of Virginia Tech.
His signing creates depth at safety. In addition to Sean Taylor, the Redskins also have Matt Bowen, Andre Lott and Ryan Clark as experienced players.
