Redskins Announce Kory Lichtensteiger Signs Contract Tender
The Washington Redskins announced Tuesday afternoon they have re-signed left guard Kory Lichtensteiger.
Lichtensteiger, 26, started the first five games for the Redskins this past season before tearing ligaments in his right knee against Philadelphia on Oct. 16. A restricted free agent, Lichtensteiger was offered a fourth-round tender by the team on March 2, according to reports, meaning any team who signed him must surrender a fourth-round pick to the Redskins in April’s NFL Draft.
He expressed a desire to return to the Redskins at the end of the season – his second in Washington after stints with Denver and Minnesota.
The team also officially announced it signed defensive end Adam Carriker to a new contract. Carriker, 27, signed that contract on Wednesday.
