Report: Redskins negotiating with Rabach

INDIANAPOLIS—The offensive line was unquestionably the biggest problem spot for the Washington Redskins last season, but as the new coaching staff and front office goes about rebuilding it, they’re trying to keep one man in place.

The Redskins have opened up talks with center Casey Rabach on a contract extension, according to Jason Reid of the Washington Post. The veteran is slated to become an unrestricted free agent March 5.

The good thing for the organization is it doesn’t have a host of UFA’s to be concerned about. Rabach is the top priority. Reid points out Washington might have as many as three new starters on the line next season, not a bad thing considering how it performed. Keeping the pivot in Rabach will help with the transition, particularly if quarterback Jason Campbell returns. That’s a whole different story though. Stay tuned.
