The Redskins have signed a lot of wide receivers and defensive backs in free agency, but they haven’t paid much attention to perhaps their greatest weakness, the offensive line.
According to Chris Russell of ESPN 980 Washington, the Redskins did host free agent offensive tackle Demetrius Bell on Friday.
Bell’s career has been riddled with injuries, but he’s a gifted tackle with long-term starting potential. Bell goes 6-foot-5, 307 and is athletic for his size. He will only be 28 years old when the season starts.
The league must not thing especially highly of him, though. Bell’s only other known visit was with the offensive line-needy Arizona Cardinals, and they signed Adam Snyder instead.
