Quick was released by the Redskins on Friday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
The fact that Quick is exclusively a slot receiver was probably a factor in his failure to make the team, especially since the Redskins already have Jamison Crowder cemented in that role.
Quick signed with the Redskins on Thursday.
Quick played at Louisville last season, recording 45 receptions for 769 yards and six touchdowns. He'll need to be impressive in the coming months in order to earn a regular-season roster spot.
