The Redskins added a little depth at tackle Monday when they announced the signing of free agent James Lee.

Lee has been with the Buccaneers since Tampa claimed him off of waivers from the Browns in 2008. Cleveland signed him the same year as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina State. Lee has played 19 games with the Bucs over the last four years, making 10 starts, but he played just three games in 2010.

With Jamaal Brown struggling to get over a hip injury, Lee gives the Redskins some experienced depth who isn’t likely to push Brown out of the lineup as long as Brown is healthy enough to be on the field. Tackle is still an area the Redskins could address in the draft, especially with Trent Williams one failed drug test away from being suspended for a full year.

The Redskins also addressed depth on the other side of the line by re-signing defensive end Kedric Golston, according to Chris Russell of ESPN 980 Radio. Golston, a sixth-round pick in 2006, had 1.5 sacks in nine games last season before going on injured reserve. Stephen Bowen will start at one end with Adam Carriker and Jarvis Jenkins possibilities on the other side, leaving Golston to battle the likes of Darrion Scott and Kentwan Balmer for playing time in the team’s rotation this season.

  1. I think London might want that off into retirement pay day he deserves but unfortunately ( for all free agents ) Vinny is doing a radio show in Baltimore.

  2. The redskins aren’t going to re-sign Fletcher, we can’t afford it. Pretty much all the cap left has been budgeted for the incoming rookies. I’m confident in perry riley but having the other starting ilb being a rookie frightens me a bit.

  3. Don’t worry Skins Fans we will sign London. He does not want to leave and we don’t want him to either. Have faith. Now if Vinny was running the show ……. damn !

  4. Slowly but surely, this team is getting its act together. It takes time, but the arrow is pointing WAY UP. Take heed NFL…..

    Vick is going to be running for his life.
    Yeah! Straight across the goal line.

  6. For those that are worried about fitting Griffin and the other draft picks under the cap, I have news for you. The NFL has a rookie pool that is subtracted from cap room. With the rookie wage cap in place, ALL of the Skins draft picks have already been subtracted from cap room. They WILL resign Fletcher, but what is the rush? Keep the cap room, see if a good vet can be had on the cheep late and then bring back Fletch close to training camp. This team is on the up!
