Redskins Tender G Kory Lichtensteiger And K Graham Gano

As announced on the team's Twitter account Friday evening, the Washington Redskins have tendered guard Kory Lichtensteiger and kicker Graham Gano for the 2012 season.

Lichtensteiger was tendered at his original draft round (fourth) and will have his base salary doubled to $1.2 million. He will then become a restricted free agent at the end of the 2012 season.

Gano was given an exclusive rights free agency deal, meaning he will be a member of the Redskins at the veteran minimum salary.

Lichtensteiger has been praised for his run blocking abilities, and will be a key part to the play of the line going forward.

Gano was a solid kicker for the Redskins in 2011, making 31-of-36 attempts with just one miss inside 49 yards.
