The Washington Redskins have signed free agent center Kevin Matthews, the team announced.
A three-year veteran, Matthews played in 14 games in 2012, starting two of them. He didn’t play a game in 2011, but appeared in three in 2010, starting one of them.
The 6-foot-3, 302-pound Matthews is the son of former Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans Hall of Fame center Bruce Matthews, and cousin of Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.
Will Montgomery returns as Washington’s starting center, and second-year pro Josh LeRibeus has worked at both guard and center in practices. Kory Lichtensteiger is the starting left guard, but moved over to center when Montgomery got hurt against Cleveland last season.
Terms of Matthews’s deal were not disclosed. The team released offensive lineman Kyle Wilborn, an undrafted free agent out of Troy, to make room for Matthews.
