Chesson caught one pass for seven yards in 12 games during the 2018 season, playing 268 snaps on special teams and seven on offense.
Selected by Kansas City at No. 139 overall in the 2017 draft, Chesson may already be resigned to carving out a career on special teams. He turned 25 in December and likely will need to battle for his roster spot in 2019.
Chesson was signed to Washington's active roster from the practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Chesson's signing comes following the news that Jamison Crowder (ankle) is expected to miss multiple weeks. The second-year wideout rejoins the Redskins' 53-man roster after being waived in Week 2, and will serve a depth role against the Cowboys on Sunday. Though an opportunity for offensive snaps is available, it appears likely that Chesson will predominantly play on special teams.
Chesson was waived by the Redskins on Monday.
Chesson was promoted to Washington's active roster prior to Week 2 but did not record a statistic. He will go through the waiver process and become a free agent if unclaimed.
