Redskins sign defensive tackle Doug Worthington

The Washington Redskins have signed free agent defensive tackle Doug Worthington, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

The former Ohio State standout was drafted in the seventh round of the 2010 draft by Pittsburgh, spent time on the Steelers' practice squad and also had a brief stint with Tampa Bay, although he never played a game.

The 6-foot-5, 295-pound Worthington joins the Redskins' defensive line unit a day after the team cut defensive end Joe Joseph, who appeared in one game for Washington last season.
