Redskins add Tony Moll to offensive tackle competition

Looking to shore up their banged-up tackle position, the Redskins have signed free agent Tony Moll.

Drafted in the fifth round by Green Bay in 2006, Moll has 22 career starts, with 10 of those coming his rookie year. Moll spent the next five seasons as a backup during stints in Baltimore and San Diego.

Moll was in training camp with Jacksonville in 2011, but was cut before the start of the season. He signed with San Diego late in the year after the Chargers lost two linemen to injury.

Moll appeared in three games for San Diego last season, starting one of them. Moll has started at both guard and right tackle during his career, and has also played tight end during his career.

The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Moll will likely compete with Tyler Polumbus, Willie Smith, Jordan Black and James Lee for playing time.

The Redskins are without starting right tackle Jammal Brown, who is on the Physically Unable to Perform list, rehabbing a hip injury suffered on the eve of training camp. It’s the same hip that Brown had surgery on in 2009, and has limited him in each of the last two years.
