Wynn will return to Redskins

First, came Fred Smoot in 2007. Last month, it was Derrick Dockery. And now, Renaldo Wynn is returning to the Washington Redskins, according to a source familiar with the deal.

Wynn, a starting defensive end for the Redskins from 2002-05 before yielding his spot to newly-signed free agent Andre Carter in 2006, has agreed to a 1-year contract to help fill a void opened by the release of Jason Taylor and the loss of Demetric Evans as a free agent.

Wynn, who’ll be 35 in September, was a backup for the New Orleans Saints in 2007 and the New York Giants in 2008, recording a sack against the Redskins last season.

Wynn’s decision to return to Washington doesn’t preclude Phillip Daniels, 36, from re-signing after having his contract voided last month in a cost-cutting move. However, Wynn does give the Redskins a proven player at left end, a spot currently occupied by Chris Wilson, Rob Jackson and Alex Buzbee who have combined for zero starts and seven sacks in 35 career games.
