The Washington Redskins have signed agreed on a contract with RT Tony Pashos, a right tackle out of the University of Illinois who has played with the Baltimore Ravens, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns.
Pashos, a 5th-round selection in the 2003 NFL Draft by the Ravens, will be 33 during training camp this upcoming season, so he's not a long-term solution at the position, more of a stopgap while the Redskins work to manage their cap under the weight of the unjust $36 million penalty handed down by the NFL.
Pashos was cut by the Cleveland Browns almost exactly one year ago and spent the entire 2012 season recuperating from torn ligaments in his left foot. In other words, Pashos has not played since 2011, but he has played in 92 NFL games, starting 76 of them.
We don't know the size of the contract yet, but considering the injury and the total lack of play in 2012, odds are good the contract is rather small. Therefore, we cannot yet k...
