Longtime Jet Fabini Signs, Adds Depth To Redskins Line

Tuesday, March 27, 2007

The Washington Redskins signed veteran offensive lineman Jason Fabini, bolstering their depth.

Fabini, 32, entering his 10th season, played for the New York Jets for eight years before seeing action in 15 games last season in Dallas. He has played the majority of his career at tackle, but likely will see time at guard after the Redskins lost left guard Derrick Dockery to free agency.

Earlier this month, the Redskins re-signed right tackle Todd Wade, who also is expected to compete for time at left guard as well as back up right tackle Jon Jansen.

Fabini did not start a game last year and started just nine in 2005. He did, however, start 16 games during each regular season from 2000 to 2004.

Fabini and Redskins right guard Randy Thomas were teammates in New York from 1999 to 2002.
