Washington signed Gibson to the practice squad Monday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Shelton Gibson: Let go by Eagles
Gibson was cut by Philadelphia on Sunday.
The 25-year-old's only appearance last season came in the playoffs, when he logged 13 snaps (two on offense) in the Eagles' wild-card loss to Seattle.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Makes only appearance in playoffs
Gibson played in just one game during the 2019 season, logging two offensive and 11 special-teams snaps in the Eagles' 17-9 wild-card loss to Seattle on Jan. 5.
Prior to rejoining the Eagles for the postseason, Gibson had been on the Browns' practice squad all year. His only noteworthy play was drawing a pass interference penalty on the team's last drive of the wild-card round. With Philadelphia almost certain to get healthier while also making upgrading its receiving corps a priority in the offseason, the 24-year-old faces long odds to crack the Eagles' Week 1 roster in 2020....

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Heads to IR
Gibson (ankle) cleared waivers and reverted to the Eagles' injured reserve Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Back at practice
Gibson (undisclosed) practiced in full Monday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Gibson wasn't able to participate in Philadelphia's June minicamp because of this injury. The 22-year-old faces a tough path to a roster spot in 2019 -- and, even then, would only be the No. 5 receiver, at best -- but his role as the No. 2 kick/punt returner certainly gives him an edge over his competition....

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Injury not deemed serious
Gibson's undisclosed injury is not believed to be serious, Dave Zangaro of NBC Philadelphia reports.
Gibson was able to watch practices from the sideline during the Eagles' recent minicamp according to Zangaro, who believes the 24-year-old will be healthy and ready by the time training camp rolls around. He'll need every edge he can get then, as he faces steep competition for a roster spot where either he or Mack Hollins is at best fifth on Philadelphia's wide-receiver depth chart. Gibson, the West Virginia product, has an advantage over his competition though, that being special-teams ability, which allowed him to log time on the field in all but one game last season....

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Faces tough path to roster spot
Gibson faces added competition for a roster spot after the Eagles signed former AAF wideouts Charles Johnson and Greg Ward, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Ward is a familiar face who spent most of 2017 on Philadelphia's practice squad, while Johnson has no history with the organization but led the AAF in catches and receiving yards. A 2017 fifth-round pick, Gibson was active for 15 games in 2018, playing 151 snaps on special teams and just 64 on offense. He'll compete with Johnson, Ward, Mack Hollins (groin), Braxton Miller and a few other players for what likely will be two or three roster spots. Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson (Achilles) and Nelson Agholor are locked in atop the Eagles' depth chart at wide receiver.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Just one catch in 2018
Gibson hauled in just one of his three targets for 48 yards while appearing in 15 games during the regular season.
Gibson saw double-digit offensive snaps in a game just once in 2018. The acquisition of Golden Tate almost completely relegated the West Virginia product to special-teams work in the second half of the campaign. Even with Tate and Mike Wallace (ankle) set to test free agency this offseason, the 23-year-old will still have an uphill battle to securing a meaningful role on offense in 2019.... See More ...

Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Will play Sunday
Gibson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Saints.
Gibson was listed as questionable after being added to the injury report Friday as a limited participant. The 23-year-old hasn't played an offensive snap since Week 13 and is likely to be limited to a role on special teams as a kick returner.... See More ... See Less
