Plackemeier was also cut by the Seahawks this year, let go after he had a pair of 22-yard punts in the season-opening loss to the Buffalo Bills. He was Seattle's punter for two full seasons and has a career average of 42.3 yards with a 35.5 net.
Zorn spent the past seven years as the Seahawks quarterbacks coach, so he knows Alexander and Plackemeier well. Green comes with an extra bonus: He was not only with Zorn in Seattle, but he also played under Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Blache when Blache held the same job with the Chicago Bears.
Green played six years with the Bears and two with the Seahawks, but his time in Seattle was marred by a severe foot injury. He was cut at the start of training camp in July.
