Former New England Patriots nose tackle Ron Brace has signed with the Redskins, the team announced Thursday. Terms were not disclosed.
The 26-year-old has appeared in 39 regular-season games, including seven starts. New England released him Dec. 29.
A Massachusetts native, the 6-foot-3, 330-pound Brace was a second-round pick (No. 40 overall) out of Boston College in the 2009 draft. He was a second-team All-ACC selection as a senior in 2008.
