Looking to kick-up the physical element along the offensive line, Washington zeroed in its focus on Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Casey Rabach at the start of the free agent signing period, which commenced at 12:01 this morning.
Rabach, a sound technician and increasingly physical presence has agreed to terms with the Redskins on a multi-year deal.
With a focus on continued improvement along an offensive line which was inconsistent at times throughout the 2004 season, the signing of Rabach is the next step in securing talent which can not only provide a powerful run-blocking base for the team, but ensure the quarterback (Patrick Ramsey) ample opportunity to make reads and deliver.
This is the second major move by the organization in two-days, as the team and starting left tackle Chris Samuels agreed on a multi-year contract reorganization and extension. Working diligently over the past two-weeks, the deal with Samuels kept the massive lineman on the roster with the Redskins who have been weeding through salary-cap issues.
