Tyler Polumbus Agrees To Contract To Return To Redskins

Polumbus, the Redskins’ starting right tackle last season, announced on his Twitter page that he had agreed to a two-year contract after leaving Jacksonville over the weekend with an offer.


Tyler Polumbus wrote on his Twitter page Monday afternoon that has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Redskins.


The right tackle started all but one game for the Redskins last season, missing the game at Philadelphia on Dec. 23 with a concussion.

Polumbus, an unrestricted free agent, visited Jacksonville over the weekend and left with a contract offer, according to the Florida Times-Union. The Jaguars were looking for a right tackle capable of playing in a zone-blocking scheme, which they will transition to this year under new head coach Gus Bradley.

The 6-foot-8, 305-pound Polumbus, 27, filled in for the injured Jammal Brown when the preseason opened and remained in that spot as Brown was never reinstated from the physically-unable-to-perform list.

The financial terms of his contract were not immediately available. Polumbus made a base salary of $700,000 a year ago.

Washington has also signed Tony Pashos, formerly with Cleveland, and Jeremy Trueblood, in Tampa Bay last season, to compete with Polumbus for time at right tackle.

By signing Polumbus, the Redskins ensure their starting offensive line will return in 2013. Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger, the only other free agent offensive lineman, signed a five-year contract with Washington on March 10.
