History repeated itself for Jonathan Goff as the former Giants linebacker tore his ACL once again and was released from the Redskins. Goff's departure opens the door for draft pick Keenan Robinson and free agent pick up Bryan Kehl. In a corresponding move the Redskins signed free agent offensive tackle Jordan Black. Starting right tackle Jammal Brown has re-aggravated his hip injury and second year tackle Willie Smith had a minor knee injury on Monday.

Black is a 32 year old NFL veteran. He played his college ball at Notre Dame and was originally drafted in the fifth round of the 2003 draft by the Chiefs. Black also spent time with the Texans and Jacksonville. He has not played in the NFL for a year when he was cut by the Saints last training camp. At this point Black cannot be looked at as any more as camp fodder and the Skins may continue to look for a a right tackle solution elsewhere.
