The Redskins previously claimed Nixon off of waivers after the Colts parted ways with him in February. Nixon appeared in four games and started one during the 2014, but infamously missed a team flight and did not play in the AFC Championship.
Nixon was released by the Colts two days earlier after spending the last two seasons with the team.
The Redskins signed Nixon as an undrafted free agent in 2013, but he didn't make the team's regular season roster. The Colts signed him off the Redskins' practice squad in September of that year.
