Former Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave back in the NFL

Joel Stave has found a new team.

The former Wisconsin quarterback has been signed to the Washington Redskinspractice squad, the team announced Tuesday.

Stave went undrafted in 2016 after finishing his Wisconsin career with 7,365 yards, 48 touchdowns and the most wins (31) of any quarterback in program history. He spent time with the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs, including the 2017 preseason with the latter.

He was released by the Chiefs in September after completing 4 of 9 passes for 80 yards and one touchdown during the preseason.

The Redskins cut offensive lineman Jerry Ugokwe to make room for Stave.

Eagles keep former Wisconsin RB Corey Clement

He didn’t get taken in the 2017 NFL Draft, but it looks like things will work out just fine for Corey Clement.

According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of, the former Wisconsin running back has made the Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster.

Clement ran for 105 yards and two touchdowns during the preseason, and added another 46 yards on seven catches.

A New Jersey native that grew up about 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia, Clement performed at a much higher level than fifth-round pick Donnel Pumphrey, who had just 49 yards on 26 carries.

The news on Clement means the top four running backs from 2013 — James White, Melvin Gordon, Derek Watt and Clement — are all on an NFL roster to start 2017.

Other former Wisconsin players on the bubble that were able to stick included WR Jared Abbrederis (Lions), WR Alex Erickson (Bengals) and CB Darius Hillary (Browns)

Not every Wisconsin player was as fortunate, though, with a number getting cut this weekend.

Wisconsin West: Seahawks sign former UW quarterback Joel Stave to their practice squad

Seattle is starting to look very much like Wisconsin West.

A day after being cut from the Minnesota Vikings practice squad, former Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave was signed to the Seahawks practice squad on Wednesday. He joins three other former Badgers signal callers in Seattle — offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, quarterback Russell Wilson and wide receiver Tanner McEvoy.

“I’m not sure if you guys noticed, but we’re stockpiling Wisconsin quarterbacks,” Bevell said with a smile when he met with reporters on Wednesday. “There’s four of us here. Two of us don’t play the position anymore, so I think that tells you something, but I’m excited to have those guys here.”

The three players know each other well. Stave was a freshman during Wilson’s lone season in Madison in 2011, while McEvoy and Stave battled for the starting gig at Wisconsin in 2013 and 2014, before they moved McEvoy to wide receiver where he caught 10 passes in 2015.

Bevell and Stave are the No. 1 and No. 2 all-time leading passers in Wisconsin history, while Wilson owns nearly every single-season passing record at UW, including yards (3,175), touchdowns (33) and passing efficiency (191.8). In 2014, McEvoy broke the single-season school record for rushing yards (574) by a quarterback.

In the preseason with Minnesota, Stave threw for 285 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.
