The Redskins have agreed to terms with Bruce Campbell, a reserve offensive tackle, on a one-year contract. 

Campbell, who played collegiately at Maryland, was drafted in the fourth round by Oakland in 2010. The 25-year-old played for the Raiders until 2012, then spent the past two seasons in Carolina. He missed all of last season with a shoulder injury.

Campbell has appeared in 19 career games but has never started. Considering his inexperience and salary (base is $645,000), it’s likely he’ll be expected to provide depth in Washington.

Last season, 2012 sixth round draft pick Tom Compton served as the Redskins’ backup tackle on both the left and right side.

As for Campbell, the highlight of his career has been running a 4.75 second 40-yard dash at the combine.
