Joel Stave is getting another shot in the NFL.

The Washington Redskins signed the former Wisconsin Badgers quarterback to their practice squad, the team announced on Tuesday.

Stave was most recently with the Kansas City Chiefs in training camp this summer after signing to the AFC West organization’s practice squad last November.

The former Wisconsin walk-on bounced between multiple organizations last season, working with the Chiefs’ practice squad after a brief stay with the Seattle Seahawks from Oct. 26 to Nov. 1. He initially was placed on the Minnesota Vikings’ practice squad from Sept. 5 to Oct. 25.

Stave was not selected in the 2016 NFL Draft after becoming Wisconsin’s winningest quarterback (31) in school history. He holds the school record for single-season pass attempts and completions (370 and 225, respectively—the latter tied with Russell Wilson’s 2011 performance) and most 200-yard games in both a single season and career (nine and 18, respectively). He is second all-time in career passing yards (7,635), career passing attempts (1,031), and career passing completions (613).
