He probably isn’t the solution to replacing departed free agent Derrick Dockery, but the Washington Redskins did sign offensive lineman Ross Tucker yesterday.

Tucker, who turned 28 last Friday, made the Redskins as a rookie free agent out of Division I-AA Princeton in 2001. He played in three games that season and in 2002 before being waived. He caught on with Dallas and started seven games at left guard.

The 6-foot-4, 316-pound Tucker next went to Buffalo, where he replaced the injured Mike Pucillo — with whom he’ll compete for Dockery’s former left guard spot — for the final five games at right guard in 2003. Tucker started 12 games for the Bills in 2004, four at center and eight at left guard.

Cut by Buffalo the following summer, Tucker signed with New England and got into two games, including a first-round playoff game. He was traded to Cleveland in 2006 but didn’t make the team and was out of football until yesterday.
