Fitch’s Mike McGlynn signs with Redskins

Staff and wire reports


The Washington Redskins have signed free agent offensive lineman Mike McGlynn.

The team announced the move Friday.

McGlynn, 29, is an Austintown Fitch High School graduate. He played college football at the University of Pittsburgh.

McGlynn can play center and both guard positions. He’s started 48 games over five NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts.

McGlynn is expected to add depth to a line that allowed 43 sacks last year, and possibly contend for a starting job.

The Redskins recently signed Shawn Lauvao, formerly of the Cleveland Browns, to play left guard and released center Will Montgomery. They plan to move Kory Lichtensteiger from left guard to center, while keeping Chris Chester at right guard.
