Report: Will Montgomery Agrees To Four-Year Deal To Stay With Redskins
INDIANAPOLIS – Will Montgomery, who played every snap on offense for the Washington Redskins last season and was the starting center for all but one game, agreed to a new four-year contract that will prevent him from becoming an unrestricted free agent next month.
The signing of Montgomery, who turned 29 two weeks ago, is the Redskins’ first re-signing of the offseason. The initial report, made by 106.7 The Fan, did not list terms.
A seventh-round pick in 2006 by Carolina, Montgomery spent the 2007 season and half of the 2008 season with the New York Jets before being signed by the Redskins. The 2011 season was his first as a starter; he started at left guard in his only game not at center.
Free agency begins with the 2012 league year on March 13, when players and their agents can begin negotiating new deals. Free agents are allowed to negotiate with their former team until March 8.
