Redskins bring veteran blocker Tony Pashos in for a shot

Given their tight salary cap situation which will keep them from being terribly active in free agency, the Redskins are forced to work the fringes of the market.

The latest is veteran offensive tackle Tony Pashos, who they signed today.

The 32-year-old Pashos didn’t play last season, after being released by the Browns in March. He was upset then at being cut after playing through an injury (a ruptured tendon  in his foot), which required surgery.

Pashos was a solid blocker when he was well, and might provide an alternative to free agents Jordan Black and Tyler Polumbus.

  1. Let barrel sledge scraping begin for the Skins! The Skins blew what little cap space they did have last year during free agency.

    Why would sign Joshua Morgan to that contract after landing Garcon? Dumb, dumb, dumb!

  2. So they signed an average-at-best, over-the-hill lineman.

    It’s not like they have a franchise QB who’s recovering from a major injury or anything.

  3. IF he makes the team… he’ll just be a back-up, he’ll be depth, not meant to be a starter… so, nothing to get excited about here

  4. You idiots with your very DUMB comments should actually learn about football instead of thinking you are funny with your DUMB comments. Just because he is signed does not mean he will make the team. If he pans out than its great. If he does not then they will tell him thanks but no thanks. Learn! HTTR!

  5. While he gets credit for playing through an injury, a screen door could have done a better job.

    skinwill- attacking your audience doesn’t do anything to strengthen your point, though you do have an excellent point to make.

    Signings like Pashos, the Steelers signing William Gay last week, Seattle bringing in Clinton Portis last year, or Washington bringing in Willie Parker and Larry Johnson a few years back are the football equivalent of Ruth’s Chris putting out a bowl of complimentary mints by the door: the phrase “cut your losses” doesn’t even apply.

    If it works out for your team, great, otherwise the player is just cut at no loss. Point is, these guys have virtually no chance of making the team, but in order to even watch them practice with the team, you’ve got to “sign” them.

    Moot point all the way around, and really, any team that doesn’t bring in bottom-of-the-barrel free agents is only hurting themselves.
