Lake Forest’s Tommy Rees Signs with Redskins

Lake Forest native and Notre Dame alum Tommy Rees wasn’t drafted by the NFL last week, but he still got a shot with a pro team.

The quarterback signed with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent, according to Comcast Sportsnet. That earns him a trip to the team’s rookie mini-camp, which could parlay into time training at the full-team mini-camp next month, according to the Lake County News Sun.

Rees is hoping to play pro ball, but knows that coaching might be his future.
