WASHINGTON -- Washington has re-signed quarterback Taylor Heinicke to a two-year, $8.75 million contract.

Heinicke was out of football when Washington signed him to the practice squad in December.

The 27-year-old impressed in his NFL playoff debut despite losing to the eventual Super Bowl-champion Buccaneers.

Heinicke was 26 of 44 for 306 yards, a touchdown pass and an interception against Tampa Bay.

He also had six carries for a team-leading 46 yards and a score.

The Old Dominion product who bounced around the league for several seasons said afterward he'd like to be back.

Heinicke will be in Washington's QB mix, which remains in flux.
