The Redskins and Buccaneers free agent offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood reached a deal contingent on a physical, NFL writer Jenna Laine reported Thursday.
Trueblood was scheduled to visit Washington this weekend, as Laine and Mike Jones of the Washington Post noted, but a deal was struck earlier.
Trueblood, who turns 30 in May, has primarily played right tackle in his NFL career. He appeared in eight games a season ago, starting one. However, Redskins general manager Bruce Allen, formerly of the Bucs, is familiar with Trueblood, as PFT’s Darin Gantt noted this morning.
Tyler Polumbus, the Redskins’ starting right tackle from a season ago, is slated to be visiting Jacksonville on Thursday and Friday.
