The Redskins hosted free agent offensive lineman Mike McGlynn on Wednesday, according to a report.

McGlynn played primarily at right guard for the Colts last season, but the 29-year-old also made two starts at center. Over the course of a five-year NFL career that’s made stops in Philadelphia, Cincinnati and Indianapolis, McGlynn has started 48 of 58 games.

Since the start of free agency, the Redskins have aimed to get bigger up front and bolster a line that excelled in run blocking but, at times, struggled in pass protection. The team has already signed guard Shawn Lauvao and released center Will Montgomery.

The Redskins also hosted former Saints center Brian De La Puente, also on Wednesday, and tackle Donald Penn on Sunday. It’s unclear if the Redskins made an offer to either McGlynn or De La Puente. Penn, meantime, signed with the Raiders.

McGlynn is listed at 6 foot 4, 325 pounds. Last year’s starting guards – Kory Lichtensteiger and Chris Chester – check in at 6-2, 284 and 6-3, 309, respectively.

ProFootballtalk.com's Mike Florio first reported McGlynn's visit.
