Robert Griffin III isn’t going to take a snap again for the Redskins this year, but he might get a chance to see one from one of his old teammates.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Redskins claimed center J.D. Walton, who was released by the Broncos yesterday.

Walton used to snap for Griffin at Baylor, and will give the Redskins another blocker to choose from for the next two weeks and perhaps beyond.

Walton was a solid player before a broken ankle in 2012, and though the Broncos activated him from the physically unable to perform list, he didn’t play this year. The former third-round pick is worth a look to see if he’s approaching health.
