PHOENIX | The Redskins and veteran right tackle Tyler Polumbus agreed to a new two-year contract on Monday. The club now has under contract all five starting offensive linemen from last year’s team, which ranked second in the NFL with 5.22 yards per rush.
Polumbus, who turns 28 in April, visited Jacksonville last week but opted to re-sign. Run blocking is his strength.
“Well Jacksonville was tempting…but I couldn’t leave these Coaches and Teammates. 2 more years! #HTTR#Redskins,” he tweeted Monday.
Polumbus is expected to compete to retain his starting spot. The Redskins signed veteran free agents Tony Pashos and Jeremy Trueblood last week.
