Wynn deal almost official

← return to Redskins 360

Defensive end Renaldo Wynn, who agreed to return to Washington on March 16 after a 2-year absence, will officially sign his contract tomorrow if he passes his physical.

Wynn, who’ll be 35 in September, started for the Redskins from 2002-05 before becoming a backup in 2006 after the arrival of free agent Andre Carter. Wynn was cut at the end of training camp in 2007.

He caught on with New Orleans and then moved on to the Giants last season. He gives the Redskins a veteran presence at left end, a position currently manned by Chris Wilson, Rob Jackson and Alex Buzbee, none of whom have ever started in the NFL.

The Redskins still hope to sign end Phillip Daniels, a starter (when healthy) from 2004-08. However, the 36-year-old Daniels, who missed all of last season after tearing two knee ligaments on the first snap of training camp, is balking at the minimum salary-type deal that Wynn agreed to.
