The Washington Redskins are getting a head start on free agency by signing former New England Patriots defensive tackle Ron Brace. Brace, a former second round pick out of Boston College in 2009 has played in 39 NFL games with the Patriots. He was released at the end of the year.
Brace will add depth to a Redskins defensive line that was improving throughout last year. With Barry Coefield slated as the starter at nose tackle, Brace has the size at 6-foot-3, 330 pounds to fill in nicely on running downs.
