DL Kedric Golston Signs New Contract

In another move to solidify the defensive line, the Redskins have booked Kedric Golston as their starting nose tackle for the 2010 season.  Jason Reid at The Post broke the news this morning:

Steady defensive lineman Kedric Golston has signed a new contract with the Redskins, the team announced Friday morning. Contract terms were not released.

In four seasons, Golston, 26, has appeared in 60 games, including 30 starts. A sixth-round pick (196th overall) in 2006 draft, Golston has been credited with 164 tackles, including 101 solo unassisted. He also has totaled 5.5 sacks, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and six passes defensed.

Last season, Golston, listed at 6 feet 4 and 300 pounds, was among Washington’s most dependable interior lineman. He appeared in 16 games, including five starts and 50 tackles (31 unassisted). Golston also contributed two sacks, six tackles for loss, two passes defensed and one forced fumble.

Golston is expected to play nose tackle in the Redskins’ 3-4 defense this season. He could become a full-time starter for the first time in his career.
