Washington Redskins Make More Roster Moves, SIgn OL Tyler Polumbus

The Washington Redskins continued their busy week of roster moves Wednesday by signing free-agent offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus, most recently of the Seattle Seahawks, to their 53-man roster. Facing a glut at the offensive line positions, the Seahawks waived Polumbus on Oct. 25. to clear a roster spot for a player at another position. Prior to being waived, Polumbus made five appearances for Seattle in the 2011 campaign. In his four-year career, Polumbus has started 15 times in 51 appearances.

The Seahawks obtained Polumbus, who can play either tackle or guard, in a trade with the Detroit Lions. His career began with the Denver Broncos, who signed the former Colorado Buffalo as an undrafted free agent prior to the 2008 season. He's thus familiar with Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, whose 14-year tenure as Denver's head coach ended following that season.

According to the Redskins' official Twitter account, Polumbus will wear No. 74 for Washington. He donned No. 76 with Denver and No. 78 with Seattle.
