As we continue our Washington Redskins offseason preview series, the next player on our list is defensive tackle Kedric Golston.
Golston was purely used as a depth player last season, appearing in all 16 regular season games while recording eight assists and no solo tackles. At 6’4, 318, Golston is a great player to plug in as a nose tackle because of his size, and although he may not have gaudy stats, having an athletic 310+ pound player to stick in the middle of your defensive line improves the running defense immensely.
There’s certainly a fit for Golston to return in the same role next season if he’s willing to keep roughly the same salary. Golston made just under $700,000 last season, and if that’s what he’s seeking in his next contract, he has a chance to be back.
