LB depth improved The Washington Redskins' quest for more depth at linebacker continued Wednesday, when they signed Warrick Holdman.
And he fits in with what defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' wants: someone who could play all three positions.
Holdman, who played for Cleveland last season, has started 63 games in his career with the Browns and Chicago. The 6-1, 235-pound Holdman is not much of a playmaker, with only four career sacks and nine forced fumbles.
He's a former fourth-round pick of the Bears and is familiar with linebackers coach Dale Lindsey, who coached him in Chicago. Greg Blache was the Bears' defensive coordinator during that time.
