According to our Scout.com sources, including the RachReport.com, former Oakland Pro Bowl tackle Lincoln Kennedy is scheduled to try out with the Washington Redskins as early as Tuesday.
"I want to play in a win a Super Bowl,'' Kennedy said in a statement released by his agent. "I want to help a contender.''
Kennedy reportedly has done the paperwork needed to free himself from any obligation to the Raiders.
There are a couple of well placed connections between Kennedy and the Redskins. Offensive line coach Joe Bugel was the Raiders' head coach while Kennedy was a player there and Washington's director of pro personnel Louis Riddick was a teammate of Kennedy's in Oakland.
It appears that the Redskins are intrigued enough at the prospect of bringing him on despite his age and recent inactivity. Kennedy, 35, has been out of football for two years and has been serving as an NFL network commentator among other pursuits.
Kennedy's agent claims that the player is in good condition, carrying 385 pounds on his 6-7 frame. That's something that the team will want to verify on Tuesday.
Washington has a solid starting five on the line but an injury anywhere along the line would likely create major issues.
