The Redskins officially signed free agent offensive tackle Tony Pashos on Monday, according to his agent Rick Smith.
Pashos is a veteran of eight NFL seasons and has played for four teams, including the Ravens from 2004-06. He most recently played in Cleveland, where he was the Browns’ starting right tackle in 2010 and 2011.
Pashos sat out last season while recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left foot. The 32-year-old appeared in only 23 games from 2009-11 because of an assortment of injuries.
It’s unclear how the Redskins intend to use Pashos. But right tackle is a need. Tyler Polumbus, last year’s starter, and Jordan Black, a reserve, are set to become an unrestricted free agents on Tuesday. Meantime, Jammal Brown’s contract voided last month.
Polumbus and the Redskins are still discussing an extension, a source said.
