Report: Redskins close with Hicks

The Washington Redskins have already brought through four offensive linemen on visits and it appears they are close to getting one under contract.

Judd Zulgad of the Minneaspolis Star Tribune reports that the Redskins are close to terms with Artis Hicks, the free agent from the Vikings. The 31-year-old guard made three starts for the Vikings last season. He hasn’t been a full-time starter since 2006, and previously he started for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Hicks would, at the minimum, provide some badly needed depth on the interior of the line for the Redskins. The team has also brought through tackles Chad Clifton and Tony Pashos and center Casey Wiegmann. Clifton left and re-signed with the Green Bay Packers.
