The Redskins have brought back two more of their free agents. Defensive end Kedric Golston and safety Reed Doughty, two veterans who came to the Redskins in the 2006 draft, have agreed to terms to return to Washington.
Both can be valued reserves. Golston has started 43 games, Doughty 25. Here is a look at how the presence of each of them affects the depth chart at their positions.
Starters: Stephen Bowen and Adam Carriker at ends, Barry Cofield at nose tackle.
Backups: Jarvis Jenkins and Kedric Golston at ends, Anthony Bryant at nose tackle
This looks much better now that Golston is in the rotation rather than Darrion Scott or Joe Joseph. Golston was largely ineffective as the starter at end for 13 games but he can contribute as part of a rotation.
Starters: O. J. Atogwe, LaRon Landry
Reserves: Reed Doughty, Kareem Moore
With Landry and Moore both on the PUP list, the addition of Doughty is huge. He can play either strong or free safety so that gives them a lot of flexibility. Doughty’s return could be bad news for Chris Horton, who has been playing pretty well in Landry’s spot.
