Washington Redskins Re-Sign Jammal Brown To Five-Year Contract, According To Report

The Washington Redskins now have a right tackle on their roster. The team has re-signed Jammal Brown to a five-year contract, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's not immediately clear how much money the contract extension will cost.

Brown came over to the Redskins in a trade from the New Orleans Saints last season for a third-round draft pick. He was converted to right tackle and had a decent season, though he struggled with a hip injury. The Redskins had no right tackle on the roster, so re-signing the 30-year old Brown became a priority. He had plenty of other offers, but chose to stay in D.C.

Brown's signing, along with the signing of Chris Chester and the likely move of either Kory Lichtensteiger to center will mean the Redskins' offensive line is close to complete.
