The Redskins have announced that they have signed former Bucs tackle James Lee to a free agent contract.
Lee has been with the Bucs since they signed him as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina State in 2008. He has played in 19 games, starting 10, with nine of those starts coming at right tackle in 2011.
You don't have to connect the dots very far to find a connection between Lee and the current Redskins staff. Bruce Allen was the Bucs' general manager when they signed him out of college.
Lee is likely to provide depth at right tackle behind starter Jammal Brown. Given the difficulty that Brown has had staying healthy in the past few years, that is a key spot on this team.
Correction: The Browns signed Lee as an drafted free agent in 2008 and Allen's Bucs signed him after Cleveland released him that same year.
