The Redskins on Tuesday night re-signed defensive end Kedric Golston to a three-year contract. It’s the latest move in coach Mike Shanahan’s push to “take care of the guys that took care of you,” a philosophy he preached Monday in light of the club’s salary cap constraints.

Re-signing Golston ensures the entire defensive line from last season’s division championship team is under contract for 2013.

Golston confirmed the length of the contract via text message. The deal includes a signing bonus of more than $300,000 and the total value could reach $5.2 million, according to a person who request anonymity because the Redskins did not announce the deal.

Golston, who turns 30 in May, was a sixth-round draft choice in 2006. Playing on a one-year deal last season, the run-stopping end had 27 tackles, including three for a loss. Golston also played on the kickoff return unit.
