NFL Free Agency Rumors: Washington Redskins Re-Sign Kedric Golston

The Washington Redskins added depth to their defensive line on Wednesday, bringing back five-year veteran free agent Kedric Golston, according to Golston himself. He was said to have drawn interest from the Dallas Cowboys, among other teams. 

The terms of the contract are not yet clear. Golston will likely take the place of recently traded lineman Vonnie Holliday in the defensive rotation, behind probable starters Stephen Bowen and Barry Cofield

Golston has played his entire career with the Redskins, dating back to 2006, when the Redskins took him in the sixth round of the NFL Draft with the 196th overall pick. He is 28 years old. 

This is a smart move by the Redskins' brass. Golston will help provide continuity to a defense that has received a major overhaul this offseason, and is more than capable of filling the role it appears the Redskins intend for him to fill. With this move the front office is likely close to finished assembling next season's defensive line group.
