Golston ‘Excited’ To Return To Redskins

Kedric Golston

On Wednesday, the Redskins re-signed one of their core players of the last seven years, veteran defensive end Kedric Golston.

The 2006 sixth-round pick out of the University of Georgia appeared in all 16 games for the 2012 NFC East champions, providing quality depth behind starters Stephen Bowen, Jarvis Jenkins, and Adam Carriker.

After signing his contract, Golston took to Twitter (@Golston64) to thank the fans and celebrate his return to the Burgundy and Gold:

We are excited for your future here in  the DMV too, Kedric!

As a rookie, Golston burst onto the season and exceeded expectations that are usually placed on players drafted in the later rounds.

In his second career start, Golston had his best performance to date, recording six tackles and splitting a sack of Titans quarterback Vince Young with teammate Anthony Montgomery.

His 44 tackles and three passes defensed during his debut season are still career-highs. Golston, along with safety Reed Doughty, are the longest tenured players on a defense that has typicall been among the best in the league since their arrival.

Even though Golston hasn’t started a game since the 2010, he has been an integral part of the defensive line rotation, and provides the Redskins with depth at all three line positions.

In the critical showdown against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football this season, Golston shined bright, helping extract revenge for a bitter Week 7 defeat. He tied a season-high with four tackles–all in the first half–to help propel the team toward its first playoff appearance in five years.

With No. 64 back in the fold on defense, the Redskins have set up a tremendous rotation for one of the best units on defense. Training camp just got a little more interesting to watch.
