Redskins re-sign four players from 2012 roster to start free agency

Normally, the running joke among the Burgundy and Gold faithful around this time of year is how Dan Snyder and the Redskins front office are “fueling up Redskins One” as part of a big plunge into Free Agency.

But the Redskins have started the 2013 free agency period rather quietly, choosing to instead retain the services of several of their own free agents instead of throwing gobs of money at other available players.

The Redskins have either re-signed or agreed to terms with tight end Logan Paulsen, fullback Darrel Young, linebacker Rob Jackson, and offensive guard Kory Lichtensteiger.

It’s also rumored that they’re working to re-sign linebacker & special teams ace Lorenzo Alexander, another key free agent from the 2012 squad who was a Pro Bowl selection on special teams. Alexander rejected the Redskins original offer just over a week ago, with the intent of testing the free agent waters, but some have indicated the Redskins are preparing another offer for Alexander before that happens.

Lichtensteiger’s re-signing means the Redskins will retain at least 4/5ths of their starting offensive line from 2012. Tyler Polumbus, last year’s starting right tackle, is also an unrestricted free agent.

    For the past 3 now going on 4 years the Redskins have been smart in Free Agency; long gone are the years of “fueling up Redskins one” but morons like this keep harping on the past. Live in the now; this running joke you speak of hasn’t been spewed for 4 years now.

    If the Redskins were such stupid lousy participants in the Free Agency market and still over paid past their prime/declining players they would not have been able to deal with the lame and illegal salary cap penalty they have had to deal with the last 2 years. The Redskins have taken a measured, calculated approach to Free Agency from the day the new GM and coach arrived 4 years ago. Just stop it with these stupid articles of how the Redskins go after stupid Free Agent deals and look at their participation in Free Agency objectively.

    They don’t have gobs of money to throw at Free Agents, so that statement is both stupid and makes no sense as well.
