Redskins Free Agency Options: Offensive Guard

The Redskins offensive line was a mess last season. If you’re even a casual fan of the team, you already knew that. Only one lineman played well enough to deserve a starting job in 2014 — LT Trent Williams. Guards Kory Lichtensteiger and Chris Chester, C Will Montgomery and RT Tyler Polumbus were all mediocre or worse. The best and most realistic solution would be to move Lichtensteiger...
