The Redskins put in waiver claims on two offensive linemen, but lost out on both.

The Washington Redskins are trying to add some more competition and depth to their offensive line, according to realredskins.com.

With the Redskins' season less than a week away, the organization was looking to bring in some new faces, including center Cody Wallace and guard Shelley Smith. Washington put in waiver claims on both but ultimately lost out to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams respectively due to the waiver order.

Smith was particularly enticing to many teams after he was cut by the Houston Texans. Smith is believed by many to be starting caliber or at the very least, a capable backup who can step in for a period of time.

Washington is carrying nine offensive lineman and likely would've had to part ways with a pair of them had the waiver claims gone through. It will be a situation to watch in the nation's capital should some other lineman hit the market.
