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.
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.
