Redskins Sign Offensive Lineman

Friday, June 23, 2006

Two days after signing three draft picks, the Washington Redskins signed offensive lineman Kili Lefotu yesterday.

Lefotu, 22, was the Redskins' seventh-round selection in the April draft, 230th overall, from the University of Arizona. He will compete with free agents Mike Pucillo and Tyson Walter to provide depth behind tackles Jon Jansen and Chris Samuels as well as guards Randy Thomas and Derrick Dockery . The 6-foot-5, 317-pound Lefotu played both tackle and guard positions at Arizona.

On Monday, the Redskins signed three draft picks, defensive linemen Anthony Montgomery and Kedric Goldston , and linebacker Kevin Simon .

The Redskins have not yet come to terms with linebacker Rocky McIntosh , their top pick in the draft. McIntosh was taken in the second round after a trade with the New York Jets and is currently recovering from knee surgery. He is expected to compete with Warrick Holdman for the starting weakside linebacker spot.
