Redskins re-sign Kedric Golston

Seeking depth along the defensive line, the Redskins re-signed veteran Kedric Golston Wednesday afternoon, according to two league sources.

Golston, who started 13 games for the Redskins last season, was a free agent and could re-join the team on the practice field as early as Thursday morning.

When the Redskins begin their next practice, they could have as many as 11 defensive linemen in camp. They lost one end earlier this week when they traded Vonnie Holliday to the Arizona Cardinals, which could have created an opening for Golston to return.

The Redskins also have Jarvis Jenkins, Adam Carriker, Darrion Scott, Joe Joseph, Stephen Bowen, Barry Cofield, Thomas Weaver, Jeff Stehel, Chris Neild and Anthony Bryant.

The Redskins originally drafted Golston in the sixth round out of Georgia in 2006. He was credited with 35 tackles last season, his highest total since his rookie season, in which he had 44.

To make the team, Golston likely will have to show that he can play both right and left side and hope the depth chart goes deep. Among ends, the Redskins seem comfortable with their options, particularly Bowen, Jenkins and Carriker.
