Undrafted free agent signings 2014: Chris Fields to Redskins

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Though it's not immediately clear if it's just a try out or a full rookie camp invite, Chris Fields is headed to our nation's capital to try and cut it at the next level.

Falling into the classic Bam Childress/Drew Carter role of four plus year Ohio State players who never seem to make their way into a permanent starting role on their team, Chris Fields was a solid and reliable third or fourth option throughout his career in Columbus. Though no draft experts had Fields on their board, the former Buckeye will continue to hone his craft with the Washington Redskins.

For Fields, who checks in at 6'1, 200 pounds, the next chapter for him will come with a shot to make the team's rookie mini-camp, which many of these undrafted agreements basically constitute. The good news for Fields is that not only do recent Buckeyes have a strong history (Anderson Russell comes to mind, with the same organization, in fact) of being able to make it to the full veteran summer camp, but a number have even gone on to play in the NFL.

Fields's body of work spoke to him being a solid receiver with good instincts. Having returned kicks at time in addition to playing wide out, the Painesville, OH product's best shot to stick with a team will probably come on special teams. Fields entered last fall's camp as a "starter" after a strong showing there, but finished the season with just 16 catches for 193 yards and 6 TDs. Additionally, Fields excels blocking on the outside, and had a propensity to get open in the red zone throughout his career.
