THE WASHINGTON TIMES
The Washington Redskins added some much-needed depth to their offensive line yesterday with the signing of free agents Tyson Walter and Mike Pucillo.
Walter, 28, spent three seasons with Dallas after being chosen in the sixth round of the 2002 draft. The 6-foot-4, 303-pound Ohio State graduate started eight games at center as a rookie. However, Walter started just once the next two seasons while filling in at center and guard before he was waived last summer. He was picked up by Houston in November but didn't get into a game.
Pucillo, 26, didn't play at all for Buffalo as a seventh-round draft pick out of Auburn in 2002 but started 12 games at right guard in 2003 under coach Gregg Williams, now Washington's assistant head coach-defense. The 6-4, 311-pound Pucillo played in just two games for coach Mike Mularkey in 2004. He caught on with Cleveland last season, starting six games -- one at right guard, two at center and three at left guard.
Neither is seen as a potential starter.
