The legal non-tampering tampering period applies only to discussions between impending free agents and new teams.  All teams remain fully authorized to re-sign their own free agents.

The cap-strapped Redskins have done just that.

According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the Redskins have agreed to terms with offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger.  It’s a five-year deal.

Signed in 2010 after spending 2008 with the Broncos and Vikings.  He has started 35 regular-season games in three seasons with the Redskins, including all 16 in 2012.
