The Washington Redskins announced that they have signed guard-center Mike McGlynn, who visited Redskins Park earlier this month.

McGlynn, 29, played for the Indianapolis Colts the past two seasons. He played for Jay Gruden in Cincinnati in 2011. He was a 2008 fourth-round pick out of Pittsburgh by the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Redskins see the 6-foot-4, 325-pound McGlynn as a player that can bolster the depth of their interior positions.

Washington this offseason has worked to upgrade the offensive line depth, particularly at guard. Josh LeRibeus, a third-round pick in 2012, didn’t play at all last season after struggling with weight issues. And uncertainty remains about 2012 fifth-rounder Adam Gettis, who only filled in on special teams last season.
