Redskins find some line depth with Jordan Black

With an offensive line already hit hard by injuries, the Redskins have signed veteran tackle Jordan Black, according to the Washington Post.

The Skins are already without starting right tackle Jammal Brown for an undetermined amount of time after he suffered a setback to a previous hip injury. Then yesterday, left guard Kory Lichtensteiger had a knee scope, and is expected to miss a few weeks.

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Black was in camp with the Saints last year, but was released in final cuts and didn’t play in 2011. In 2010, he started nine games for Jacksonville. He’s totaled 40 starts in 80 appearances in the league, having also played with Kansas City.

    Another bum to add to the roster. For all of the RG3 talk going around in our nations capitol. There isnt much talk about who’s going to protect him or who’s he going to throw the ball to. They picked up some receivers during the offseason. But, Really. Those guys are 2’s and 3’s. Not a clear cut number 1 option out of any of them. Not to mention a defense that at times can be good but other times seem to be a garge door wide open. They need serious safety help and D.Hall is as overrated as they come. With the two idoit Shannies running the show in DC, I can see another dissappointing season for the Skins. Sorry but Fail!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

    This guy is terrible. Hopefully he’ll stay on the bench or get cut for RG3’s sake.

    The Shannies are a joke, BTW. He only won in Denver b/c he circumvented the cap and th son has done nothing. The Shanahans are an NFL myth, the sooner they leave, the better of the ‘skins will be.

    RGIII may be able to run, but I’d rather have him be a quarterback first and a runner second. Him having to run because the offensive line is a sieve is going to put him in danger of getting hurt, running ability or not. I’m a Skins fan and I’m happy to have him at QB, but he’s only going to be as good as his offensive line and, already, there are questions there.

    He was so bad in camp with the Saints last year they cut him despite not having a backup.

    Good thing they invested all that money into WRs.
