Who Can the Redskins Sign at Right Tackle?

You know if he could block Haynesworth than he can block anyone!

For now it seems as if the Redskins will take care of the Jammal Brown "situation" internally. There have been numerous situations where a team may say this early in camp to see what they have but many times end up going the free agent route as preseason continues. But who is available this late in the game that the Redskins could tab as their starting right tackle?

Chad Clifton: The Redskins went after Clifton a couple of years ago, but the veteran decided to stick with Green Bay. The 36 year old spent all twelve of his NFL seasons in Green Bay and started six games for the Pack. Despite his age Clifton is only one year removed from a Pro Bowl season in 2010.

Tony Pashos: Pashos will be 32 next month and is an eight year veteran in the NFL. He started his career with the Ravens where he became a starter in his second year. Pashos value increased and he signed a free agent deal with the Jaguars where he had his best year in 2007. After two seasons in Jacksonville Pashos spent a year with the 49ers and has spent the past two with the Browns where he started twelve games last year.

Marcus McNeill: Surprising to some McNeil is only twenty-eight years old. He was drafted in the second round of the 2006 draft where he quickly became a two-time pro bowler for the Chargers. The six year veteran missed most of last year with a neck injury, but the 6'8 335 lbs tackle may be better then anything the Redskins have.

Vernon Carey: The 31 year old has been a staple for the Dolphins after being their first round pick in 2004. The eight year starter has spent most of his career at the right tackle position, but the Dolphins tried to kick him inside last year. He could bring depth and versatility to the line, beyond a starting right tackle, if someone else emerges or Jammal Brown returns to form.

Stacy Andrews: Redskins fans should be familiar with this former Eagle and Giant. Andrews is now 31 and started three games for the Giants last year, after starting twelve for the Seahawks in 2010. Like Carey, Andrews brings some versatility as he's played both guard and tackle at the NFL level.

Kareem McKenzie: McKenzie is another name that should sound familiar as he's spent the last seven years as the Giants starting right tackle. The 33 year old has spent eleven years in the league total, as his first four were with the Jets. The veteran has not missed a start for the Giants since 2009.
