Mike Jones and Mark Maske of the Washington Post report that the Washington Redskins are finalizing a deal with right tackle Tony Pashos.
With Jammal Brown, Tyler Polumbus, Kory Lichtensteiger and Jordan Black all potentially gone next season, it’s unclear whether Washington’s staff view Pashos as a starter or a backup. Pashos has 72 career starts for Baltimore, Jacksonville, San Francisco and Cleveland, and has logged 20 more games as a backup. Pashos spent last year as a free agent, recovering from ruptured ligaments in his left foot.
Any deal with Pashos will likely be for a low salary, as the Redskins are already over $4-million over the salary cap. Look for Washington to add more offensive linemen in the coming weeks, as the unofficial start of NFL free agency starts tonight at midnight EST.
