The Washington Redskins had several needs entering the off-season, and one of those major areas of weakness was the offensive line. Finally, Washington made a move to sign interior lineman Mike McGlynn. McGylnn spent the last two seasons as a member of the Indianapolis Colts where he started 14 games as well as 2 playoff games in 2013. The 29 year old was drafted in the fourth round by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008 and will now suit up against his former team two times per year.
McGlynn worked under now head coach Jay Gruden during the 2011 season when he played for the Cincinnati Bengals. McGlynn will be an immediate impact player for the Redskins and Washington expects the veteran lineman to compete right away for time along the offensive line.
The Redskins will now turn their attention to the upcoming NFL Draft, and I expect Washington to further solidify their offensive line. The real question remains as to when Washington will select an offensive lineman seeing as they only have six selections in the draft.
